I've fixed the error you stated below, thanks! 16:54, 21 August 2006 (UTC)by Linda J. Higgins Issac Burton Tigrett did not start a Toy Factory in Jackson -- it was John Burton Tigrett, who was a nephew of Issac B. Tigrett, President of the Gulf Mobile and Ohio railroad and lived in Jackson. There was no Issac Burton Tigrett Sr. and Issac and his wife did not have children. Issac Burton Tigrett was the originator of Hard Rock Cafes and he did indeed open the first one here in Jackson at his mother's development, the Old Hickory Mall. He did it primarily to incorporate the business in Tennessee first before taking it to other towns and countries. John Burton Tigrett married Frances Tomlin, another old and prominent family name in Jackson. John and Frances had two or three boys, one of whom was Issac Burton Tigrett. They divorced in the 1960s (I believe that date is correct.) He married Pat Kerr, a native of Savannah, Tennessee who had made a name for herself in Memphis as a model and artist. They had one son, Kerr Tigrett. John Tigrett was responsible for the building of the Pyramid in Memphis. He is deceased now. He wrote his autobiography and it was published before he died.

Someone should find out how big the Jackson Metropolitan Area is.

content link - inquiry[edit]

I can't answer your question about leaving the ad intact here (because I am not well-versed in wikipedia protocol for Talk pages), but if you want to avoid the addition of increasing numbers of trivial links, you could add the following string to the external links section of the article: *{{dmoz|Regional/North_America/United_States/Tennessee/Localities/J/Jackson|Jackson}}
That string will generate a link to the Open Directory Project page --orlady 02:11, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry If I am doing this wrong, I am new to Wikipedia editing, but in the first section, it says The Diamond Jaxx are the Minor League team of the Chicago Cubs and me being the number one Cubs fan on here know that is wrong. The Cubs dropped them during the winter of 2006. Their new parent team is the Seatlle Mariners. I tried to edit it, but did not know how. If someone could edit it, please do so. Thanks you. -Cubsfan97-

I am deleting Mike Peasly Realty's ad off the main page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:14, 17 September 2008 (UTC)


Is it St. Mary's, or Sacred Heart of Jesus, or both? The article is unclear on how many of these Catholic schools there are. --Orange Mike 20:40, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

There are two. St. Mary's is the K-8 and SHJ is the high school. Thanks for updating our Jackson page! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:56, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
