William S. Jackson
Jackson was the son of D. G. Jackson, a lawyer from Tonawanda, NY. In 1892, he married a daughter of Buffalo shoe dealer T. B. Staley. They had two children.
He was First Assistant District Attorney of Erie County when he was elected New York State Attorney General on the Democratic and the Independence League tickets in November 1906. In February 1907, when he was just a month in office, his wife retained Edward E. Coatsworth (the former law partner of William F. Sheehan, Charles F. Tabor and John Cunneen) and announced she would sue for divorce. Two days later, they reconciled.
