DIED, Died at his home in Monroeville, O., on Friday, Sept. 21st., 1877, Mr. WM. R. JACKSON, son of the late Judge JACKSON, in the 55th. year of his age.   Mr. JACKSON was born near Mt. Vernon, O., May 14, 1823, and in the year of 1826 removed with his parents to Bellville where he was reared and spent the early years of his manhood.  During our acquaintance with Mr. JACKSON, extending through many years we had abundant opportunity of judging of his character.  It is rare indeed to meet with one whose qualities of head and heart would so universally command respect with those with whom he became acquainted.  He was in attendance at the Soldier's Reunion on the 12th. of Sept., at this place, and although in feeble health, participated in the activities of the occasion without any seeming lack of enjoyment and expressed great satisfaction at the manner in which the programme was carried out.  His death was very sudden and unexpected.  On the morning prior to his death he made arrangements to attend the fair at Norwalk and had gone out to feed preparatory to starting, his wife accompanying him to the barn by his request.  Soon after reaching the barn, and while in the act of feeding, he complained of sickness and sunk down paralyzed.  Help was obtained and he was removed to the house and a physician called, but he was beyond the reach of human aid, and in two hours after the attack death came to his relief.  Mr. JACKSON was an affectionate husband and father and a faithful friend, always discharging the duties devolving upon him in every sphere of life.  He leaves a wife and six children, four sisters, one brother and a host of friends to mourn his loss.  To them we extend our heartfelt sympathy.  -- EMIL.
