132nd Birthday

Today marks the 132nd anniversary of Robert Houghwout Jackson’s birth. It occurred on Saturday, February 13, 1892, in Spring Creek Township, Warren County, Pennsylvania, in the farmhouse that Robert’s great-grandfather built on the Brokenstraw Creek much earlier in the 19th century.

In Spring Creek, February 13, 1892, was a very snowy day. A doctor delivered Robert in the second floor room where his father, William Eldred Jackson, had been born thirty years earlier.
