From B. J. Griswold, THE PICTORIAL HISTORY OF FORT WAYNE, INDIANA, and THE STORY OF THE TOWNSHIPS OF ALLEN COUNTY, by Mrs. Samuel R. Taylor, Chicago, Robert O. Law Company, 1917

 

PHANUEL JACKSON, who came to Perry township with his sister and her husband, ELEAZER CUMMINGS,  from Maine, to a farm which afterward became his, had an unusual career, if being a successful farmer, and a practical one, and for more than 20 years a successful (self-taught) practitioner as an oculist, becoming also licensed physician of Allen County may be called unusual.  MR. JACKSON was elected Justice of the Peace in 1886.  Three daughters, MERCY M., MARGARET D., and MELIA N., survived him and a fourth, CORDELIA M., dying some years before.  After the CUMMINGS in 1842, came JOSEPH WARNER, who earned his first 40 acres by clearing another 20 acres during his first winter in Perry, a good bargain well fulfilled: and his son SAMUEL, “a born carpenter” who never lacked a job, because of the good quality of his work.  He married JULIA A. SPENCER and they reared 7 children to be a credit to their training.
