19:11 Jane Evalina McAdams The scope of the photo section of this website is normally limited to pictures of the descendants of Hiram A. McAdams. However, there are times when the historical significance of a photo merits its inclusion. This is a picture of Jane Evalina McAdams. She was the 9th child of John McAdams, Sr., the sister of John McAdams, Jr. and the aunt of Hiram A. McAdams. Jane Evalina was born on 2 Oct 1820 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and died in Nov 1906 in Cherokee County, Texas. She married Jackson Smith abt. 1837 in Shelby County, Texas.

19:12 Jackson Smith Jackson Smith. By 1847 Jackson settled the family in what is now Cherokee Co. Jackson came to Texas from Illinois in time to serve in the Revolution in Capt. Burriet's Co. of Gen. Thomas J. Rusk's Brigade and he claimed to have guarded Santa Ana after the Battle of San Jacinto. In 1838 Jackson scouted for Gen. Rusk when troops were sent to Cherokee Co. following the Killough Massacre in which 17 people were killed, supposedly by Indians. During this service Jackson located land on Gum Creek where he later settled. It was a portion of this land that he set aside to establish the town of Jacksonville. He ran a blacksmith's shop there. During the Civil War Jackson joined Confederate forces for four years of service. He was a Master Mason and the family attended the Methodist Church. In 1987 a Texas Historical Commission marker was placed on his grave to honor him as the founder of the town. A tragic accident in 1870 claimed the life of Jackson and Evalina's son, Bill. A circus -troop was performing in Jacksonville when a disturbance broke out between some of the performers and local people. Federal troops were called in and they captured and killed a murderer. In the confusion Bill Smith was accidentally shot as he was riding out of town on his horse. He was probably buried in the Smith Family Cemetery which can not now be located.
