Burial Place of Julia JacksonThis is one of the earliest identified cemeteries west of the Allegheny Mountains. William Tyree, owner of nearby Tyree Tavern, and Confederate Col. George W. Imboden, brother of Gen. John D. Imboden, are buried here. The cemetery is best known, however, for the grave of Julia Beckwith Neale Jackson Woodson, the mother of Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. She was born on February 28, 1798, in Loudoun County, Virginia, and moved with her family two years later to the Parkersburg vicinity. She married Jonathan Jackson, an attorney, on September 28, 1817, and the couple had four children, including Thomas Jonathan Jackson born on January 21, 1824. Jonathan Jackson died two years later, deeply in debt, leaving his family destitute.
