    Correspondence mainly concerns the Bank of Belhaven. A 1923 letter from the chief state bank examiner notes its perilous condition, and letters from 1927-1936 concern its liquidation.

    Birth memorandum books (1919-1935) list the city and/or township, sex; father's name, race, age, birthplace, and occupation; mother's maiden name, race, age, birthplace, number of children born, number of children living; date of birth; and remarks which usually included time of birth, child's name, medical problems, weight, and whether illegitimate. Another medical file includes an 1897 advertisement for trusses, U.S. Treasury Department Inventory of Opium, etc (1931-1935), an advertising pamphlet for medical and surgical instruments, and a March-April 1935 patient memo book. Two patient ledgers (1927-1934, 1931-1936) give more complete information on Jackson's cases, including name, date of visit, medical problem, medicine, address (town) and charge. Colored patients are noted as is payment in cash or in kind.

    Jackson bought a farm in 1931 and his personal ledger (1926-1945) contains farm accounts for Pantego Farm, including tobacco and hog sales and general purchases from 1931 through 1945. Some farm accounts are also noted in the 1931-1936 patient ledger. Financial records are primarily farm-related and include papers that indicate the number of hogs slaughtered (1934-1935), contractual arrangements (1935), tobacco warehouse sales (1938-1945), notes, and chattel mortgages.

    Land records are for property in Beaufort County (1891-1932), and Jackson's real estate and personal property file reflects his personal holdings.

    A miscellaneous file includes an 1883 report card for Louis Eborn, a broadside for a Free Magic Circus (1941), and ads for pure whiskies from the Casper Co., in Winston-Salem, N.C.
