Jackson

The first public school was located in the fall of 1832, on lot eleven, B. one south, range one east, on Main street. The township authorities contracted at this time for the building of a school-house, but the contractor left for parts unknown without complying with his contract, after collecting all the taxes.
EARLY SETTLERS.
In 1832 Mr. Hogan sold out his stock of goods to Daniel Dwight & Co., who the next year moved into a new store which had been built on the south side of the public square, east of Jackson street. Mr. Daniel Dwight sold his stock to his brother, Mr. John N. Dwight, who soon after formed a partnership with Mr. David Dwight. The interests of both" these gentlemen became completely identified with that of Jackson, and remained so with the former until his death. Mr. David F. Dwight, though no longer a resident of Jackson, still retains a large real estate interest, and gives much of his time and attention to such enterprises as have a tendency to advance the interest of the city. Mr. Hiram Thompson opened an office in 1832 as agent for the sale of real estate and general conveyancer. In 1833 Mr. Thompson became register of deeds, the first for the county, and held the office until 1836. He also acted as clerk of the board of supervisors in 1833 and 1834. He Was again register from 1842 to 1846.
