JACKSON, William, clergyman, born in 1732; died in 1813. He studied theology with clergymen of the Dutch Reformed church, and in 1753 was called to the pastorate of the congregations of Bergen, New Jersey, and Staten Island, New York, on the condition that he should complete his studies in Holland at their expense. In 1757, having been ordained by the classis of Amsterdam, he returned and took charge of the churches. He preached in the Dutch language, and was a celebrated field-preacher, besides being esteemed for his learning and literary attainments. About 1783 his mind became affected, but his ministry was not terminated till 1789, when insanity of a pronounced type had been developed.
