Regarding the obituary of Mj. Eli Jackson, let me say that he was my first cousin, once removed. We share common ancestors Will Pryor and Apphia Edwards Pryor (my great grandparents of Henry Co., KY.) Although I live in S. California and Eli lived in Louisville, KY, I got to meet with him for the last time about 2002. I had just finished a book about his brother and the Fifth Army (incl. Gen Patton and Gen Clark) during WII. Now that I have to re-publish the book "Full Duty," I will take the opportunity to add a chapter about Eli.
