Notes for Alonzo (Ross) JACKSON
Alonzo (Ross) farmed, fished and musseled a lot. For many that are not familiar with mussels, there were special boats equipped with hooks that they worked the river, lowering the hooks and or brail. His years on the river were before motors or cranks for power were known, so he paddled the boat alone with an oar, lowering and raising the brais by hand.
