Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, 1824-1863

He was a mediocre student and
a terrible teacher.
But each time he married, it was to the
daughter of a college president.

On August 4, 1853, Jackson married Elinor Junkin (1825-1854), daughter of Dr. George Junkin (President of Washington College) and Julia Miller Junkin.

On July 16, 1857, Jackson married for the second time. His wife was Mary Anna Morrison (1831-1915), daughter of Robert Hall Morrison, the retired President of Davidson College.
