Caroline Cook Jackman

Sarah Caroline Cook Jackman was born in Augusta, New York March 31, 1814 to Jonathan and Mary Cook. Her husband Cyrus Jackman was born in Vermont in 1808. He appears in the 1850 Grand Chute census as a tavern keeper, along with Caroline and five children. According to an article in the December 17, 1930 Post-Crescent, Jackman owned the first hotel in the village of Grand Chute. Another article in the March 17, 1968 Post-Crescent says that the boarding-house type hotel was probably at the top of Jackman St.

By 1880 Caroline was living in Oshkosh and was listed in the census records as a widow, probably owing to the fact that her husband moved to New York to live with their daughter sometime between 1869 and 1880. She died April 24, 1905 and her obituary appeared in the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern that day.
