Title: Charles Jackman - obituary
In the death of Mr Charles Jackman, Almonte loses a romantic figure and a respected citizen.
Born at Yeadon, near Leeds, England, years ago, he had been for the greater part of a century, closely associated with the textile industry.
As a young man he was apprenticed to a weaver in the days when practically the greater part of the weaving was done in private homes by the hand loom.
The late Mr Jackman was married in 1869 to Miss Sarah Ann Clayton of Yeadon, England, and to this union were born one daughter, and six sons: Blanche of Almonte, James who died in England in 1927, Arthur of Toronto, Roger, Alfred, and Allan, of Almonte, and Harry, who died in childhood.
Mrs Jackman pre-deceased her husband in 1925.
Mr Jackman and family came to Canada about twenty-five years ago, residing at Almonte. He was employed by the Rosamond Woolen Company, being pensioned by that Company in 1918.
A gentleman of kindly disposition he enjoyed the friendship of a wide circle of acquaintances.
