Jackson, North Carolina Historical Events



1950's
Memories of Jackson and the Rogers Family
My grandfather, Hebert Lewis Rogers Sr., was the Justice of the Peace in Jackson during the 1950's. His daughter, Jane Vick, worked at the jail and also stood watches in the fire tower. When I was about 7 or 8 (28 or 29 years ago), my Aunt Jane took me up in the fire tower. Now, I was in the Navy 4 years and traveled all around the world, but no sight or place ever had the impact or awe that I experienced as a child being allowed this special treat! My grandfather died in 1970 on Christmas Eve, grandmother many years later, and my wonderful Aunt Jane passed on about 6 years ago. Forgive me for innacurate/unsure dates as I am working on that and will soon update this entry. Kenny Vick (Aunt Jane's son), to the best of my knowledge, is still alive and well living in Jackson on the main street through town in a two-story building beside the (old?) post office.
