Arthur "Autto" Jackson was born in 1890 in Louisiana to the union of Joseph Jackson, Sr. and Louise Nicholson-Jackson. Arthur married Lottie Milo in 1909 in Louisiana and to this union, three children were born: Ella Jackson, Curry Jackson, and Cuvy "Jim" Jackson. Arthur passed away October 6, 1918 in Plaucheville, Louisiana due to a huge epidemic of influenza that swept Louisiana. The "Silent Killer" of 1918-1919 hit the United States in a wave. Arthur died a week after this took place. Influenza usually comes in seasons and then passes. Unfortunately it hit the United States continuously. It started in the spring of 1918, when the Spanish flu was initially sited and then pneumonia as the cause of death. Later in the years, doctors were a little more aware of this growing epidemic and tried to work harder to fight it. Schools were closed. Unfortunately, our government of the time didn't realize the imminent danger of the time and money was deferred from the fight of the epidemic. Those that were poor, especially blacks, were unable to fight off this epidemic as was the cause of our own family members, Arthur Jackson succumbed to the disease. Before it ended in 1919, 20 million people were killed worldwide, about twice as many as World War I, with about 500,000 to 600,000 of them in the United States. October was the deadliest month and some 195,000 people died. (Excerpt taken from Jackson-Payne-Harper-Randall Family History Book, created by Ralene F.
