Stonewall Jackson, Jr.Stonewall Jackson, Jr.

Stonewall Jackson, Jr. was born in Weatherford, May 12, 1925 and was the youngest of five siblings. His parents were Stonewall Jackson, Sr. and Willie Houston Jackson.

Stonewall served two years in the US Navy during World War II and was sent to the South Pacific region. He returned home and attended Weatherford Junior College where he met his future bride, Monteen Gilbert of Santo. They married in 1949 and operated a service station in Weatherford for several years. In the mid-1950s, they relocated to Santo where they operated Jackson's Grocery & Market for almost 50 years. They also had farming and ranching interests in association with Monteen's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Deal Gilbert of Santo.

Stonewall and Monteen were active Christians and belonged to the First Baptist Church of Santo for many years. Stonewall and Monteen were blessed with two daughters, Sylvia Jackson Reeves of Wylie, Texas, and Diana Kidweiler of Santo. Sadly, Monteen passed away in 2004.

In addition to his daughters, Stonewall is survived by four grandchildren: Angelique Compton of Santo, Micah Hamilton of Santo, Misty Hamilton of Stephenville, and Bill Reeves of Wylie. He also has two great-grandchildren, Brayden and Brett Hamilton of Santo. Stonewall is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Stonewall was a loving family member and was the last survivor among his brothers and sisters. While only an infant, he lost his father and was always grateful for the love and attention of his mother who had to raise the family on her own. He was particularly attached to his beloved older brother and Iwo Jima veteran, Jake Jackson of Weatherford. Jake passed away earlier this year.

Stonewall loved sports and for several years was honored to serve as announcer for Santo High School football games. His family remembers the small grocery store in Santo with great fondness and wishes to express their gratitude to all the many friends and supporters in the Santo area. Stonewall spent his final years at Holland Lake Nursing Home in Weatherford, and the family also wishes to express gratitude to all the care givers and staff members for their outstanding service to Stonewall.
