Jackson Parish

Established in 1845, during the administration of Gov. Alexander Mouton, was created from a part of Claiborne parish. All this country was known as the "Natchitoches District" when held by France and Spain, and the early history of Jackson is that of Natchitoches and Claiborne parishes.  It has an undulating surface of 574 square miles;  is stituated in the north-central part of the state; is bounded on the north by Lincoln parish; on the east by Ouachita and Caldwell parishes; on the south by Winn parish, and on the west by Bienville and claiborne parishes. The parish seat is Vernon, a little north of the center of the parish...   [Excerpted from "Louisiana Comprising Sketches of Counties, Towns, Events, Institutions, and Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form"; Edited by Alcee Fortier, Lit.
