The Pringle Brothers at Pringle Tree
Sketched by Robert B. Smith to look like a woodcut -- based on original woodcut by Diss Debar done in mid 1800s.

In 1768, the immigrant, John JACKSON, with his sons, George and Edward, crossed the Alleghany Mountains into the unbroken wilderness of now West Virginia. John made a tomahawk claim for his homestead at the Pringle Tree, near the mouth of Turkey Run, where it empties into the Buckhannon River, near present day city of Buckhannon in Upshur County, West Virginia. His was one of the first three families to settle in this region.

John Jackson's great-grandson was Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, famous Confederate General of the U. S. Civil War.
