WALTONVILLE: JACOBSON, George, 79 died at 7 p.m. Sunday in
Lowery Nursing Home, Mt. Vernon; funeral services at 2 p.m. Wednesday
at Brayfield Funeral Home, where friends may call, burial in Old Baptist
Cemetery near Sesser.
The Jacobson family had a farm and peach orchard just west of the Old
Baptist Church & Cemetery. Many families would work there during peach
picking season. Both of my parents' families knew this family well, and
I remember both my parents saying that they worked there when it is
peach picking season. I only ever knew the Jacobson's as Uncle George
and Aunt Bertha and their son was Uncle Frank. Bertha had already passed
away before I found out that we weren't really related to them.
