| REPORTED KILLED, FOUND SAFE AND WELL |
Mrs. Ora Allen Jackson Burnett, of Jamesville, was officially in
formed by the Navy Department last Friday that her son, Austin Ran
dolph Jackson, above, was safe and well and that an earlier official re
port of his death was an error. Mrs. Burnett, while on a visit to her
sister. Mrs. S. F. Darden, here December 16, was notified by the Navy
that the young man had been killed in action, presumably in the Pearl
Harbor attack by the Japanese on December 7. Her first intimation
that the report was false came last Thursday, New Year’s Day, when she
received a card from the young man, dated December 12, stating that
he was well and that a letter would follow. The following day she re
ceived a message from the Navy Department regretting the erroneous
report, and Tuesday she received a letter from her son, dated in Hono
lulu December 26tli. Young Jackson, who is well known here where he
visited frequently, is believed to be stationed on a battleship in Hawaiian
waters. Only 19 years old, he has been in the Navy a little over a year.
Members of his family, other relatives and friends, after mourning his
death for about 15 days, were naturally overjoyed when news came that
the first report was erroneous. Mrs. Jackson had received many mes
sages of condolence and sympathy, including a letter from former Sec
retary of the Navy and Mrs. Josephus Daniels, and she wishes to pub
licly express her sincere appreciation for the many kindnesses shown
her during a very trying period.
