JOHN LOGAN JACKSON. - A rising young business man of Bonner Springs, public-spirited and progressive, John Logan Jackson is identified with the financial interests of his community as assistant cashier of the Farmers' State Bank. A native of Kansas, he was born in Glenwood, Leavenworth county, January 8, 1885, a son of Thomas and Louisa (Yeck) Jackson. He obtained his preliminary education in the district schools, and in 1909 was graduated from the Bonner Springs high school.

The year succeeding his graduation, Mr. Jackson taught school in Leavenworth county, and then, for nine months, was teller in the State Savings Bank at Leavenworth. In the summer of 1905 he was cashier for the Harvey Eating House Company, in the spring of 1906 resuming his old position in the Leavenworth bank. Nine months later, in 1907, Mr. Jackson resigned that position to accept his present one of assistant cashier of the Farmers' State Bank at Bonner Springs.

On April 12, 1911, Mr. Jackson was appointed by Mayor Longfellow treasurer of Bonner Springs, and is now acting in that capacity. He belongs to the Fraternal Aid Association, is an active member of the Christian church, and for the past four years has been superintendent of its Sunday school.

Mr. Jackson married, September 9, 1908, Mae Riley, a daughter of Thomas and Susie (Carver) Riley. Mrs. Jackson was educated in the Southern Kansas Academy at Eureka, Kansas.
