The Missouri in the Civil War Message Board

William R Jackson

William Riley Jackson of the Columbia Jail Break fame was the son of Judge James Jackson of Audrain County. See History of NE MO. The interesting play and connection is that Martin C Flynt was a neighbor and succeeded Judge Jackson in his public duties in Wilson Twsp and the County Court (Commission in todays parlance.)

I do not find a familial connection to the Jim Jackson of Ne MO bushwhacking fame.
