  • Village Record on January 9, 1822 — Death — Obituary DIED, at the house of capt. John L. Harper, in Hocking county, Ohio, on the 26th ult. HENRY ABRAMS, Esq. in the 66th year of his age.

We have not been able to ascertain minutely all the circumstances attending the unfortunate occurrence that caused his death.

Harper, in Hocking county, on Thursday last, he went early into the woods with his rifle in pursuit of game; becoming fatigued with walking, he had seated himself upon a log, and when in this situation, was unfortunately shot by his son-in-law, Harper, who was also engaged in hunting, but had not gone out with the deceased, or been with him in the woods that day. Judge Abrams was immediately conveyed to the house of his son-in-law and surgical aid procured to no effect. He lingered until the 26th when he expired without a groan.

  • Village Record on January 16, 1822 — Death — JOHN JACKSON, whose death was published in the last Record, was a native of Londongrove and was born where he died; his father was also born and died on the same plantation. His great grandfather was one of the earliest settlers in that neighborhood. There is something very pleasant in the idea, as it shows the general course of happiness and contentment that must have prevailed, to see the son succeeding to the father, generation after generation to the same farm; in eating the fruits planted by a father hand; In planting fruits with the expectation that they shall be enjoyed by our children, many tender and pleasing recollections and anticipations arise. The object of this notice was one who never courted the public gaze; nor was he ambitious of public business or honor; not that he thought it improper. He held in respect those who preferred public service, but his genius led him another way. A self taught botanist, he took delight in cultivating in his leisure hours a garden, which he stocked with a multitude of indigenous and foreign fruits and flowers. The taste grew with his years, and there are few who have not seen and admired or heard of and wished to see, the garden of JOHN JACKSON. At this time it has a greater variety of rare trees, plants, fruits and flowers than the celebrated garden of Humphrey Marshall ever had. The orange and lemon trees are now bending with their golden honors; and as if in pride, yet blossoming for more. He was always an industrious man & in his latter years spent most of his time in his garden. As his pursuits were innocent his life was pure, his manners plain and ample. He had a strong mind, and intelligence that would have enabled him to take a lead in public life had he chosen to do so. He had no enemies, and a short time before he expired he said – he should die in love and peace with all the world.’

He was a zealous friend to the revolution, and holding a commission in the militia, was called out on several tours of service; which he performed faithfully and to the satisfaction of his commanders. He sustained himself respectably through a long and active life. A firm believer in the doctrines of the Christian Religion, his faith was his joy in health, his solace in affection, and his stay in the hour of death.
