Jackson Y. Erwin, farmer, Monticello, Ark. There are a number of men prominently identified with the growth and prosperity of the county, but none among them are more deserving of mention than Jackson Y. Erwin, He owes his nativity to Marchall COunty, Miss., where his birth occurred on February, 22, 1844, and is the son of John and Priscilla Erwin, early settlers of Mississippi, where the father died. The mother died in Arkansas in 1886. Their family consisted of nine children, six of whom are living: Mrs. Capt. Isom, Jackson Ann, Zelna, in the Lone Star State; Hockett and John. The father was a tiller of the soil and a man universally respected. Jackson Y. Erwin was reared in Mississippi until fourteen years of age, but the principal part of his education was received in Arkansas, whiter he had moved in 1858. He first located in Spring Hill Township, where he resided until 1875, and then removed to his present property, which consists of 1,400 acres of land with several hundred acres under cultivation. When he first took the place there were but few improvements but he has since erected a good residence, substantial outbuildings, etc., and is quite interested in stock-raising. His marriage occurred in 1871 to Miss Judith Jeter, by whom he has three children: Willie F., Clyde and Bertie. Mr. Erwin is one of the prominent men of the county and a first-class farmer, as a glance over his broad acres will show.
