H.M. was 92 in 1982 which I read from a newspaper clipping: November 30, 1982 - The Sanford News-Herald - Checkers anyone?  Mr. Jackson died several years latter.  H. M. Jackson was active in Sanford/Lee County politics.  A NC Democrat alternate delegate to Democratic National Convention from North Carolina in 1964..

I will try to find a picture and his obituary and funeral arrangements.  I'll supplement this page when I get more information.
