Historians recognize one of Jackson’s founding fathers
JACKSON, Tenn. — The United States Daughters of 1812 hosted a special ceremony Wednesday to mark the grave of Stokely Donelson Hays. Historians said he is one of Jackson’s founding fathers.
The United States Daughters of 1812 helped organize the event at Riverside Cemetery in Jackson. Sherry Taylor serves as president of the Tulip Grove chapter. “Today we honor his service as a soldier of the War of 1812,” she said.
Historians said Hays helped establish the city of Jackson and was related to the seventh president. “He knew Andrew Jackson,” Taylor said. “He stayed at the Hermitage. His mother is Rachel Jackson’s sister.”
The group also marked the graves of Hays’ mother and sister. Hall said he is thankful the organization chose to honor his family. “It’s interesting to know that there’s a deep history with the city of Jackson rooted here with my family,” Hall said.
Taylor said they hope to make Riverside Cemetery known again.

Gravesite marked for U.S. marshal
David Thomas, The Jackson Sun 11:13 p.m. CDT September 8, 2016
Under a sweltering sun, the U.S. Daughters of 1812 marked the Riverside Cemetery gravesite of Robert J. Chester, a soldier of the 1812 conflict and U.S. marshal of 1840 in Jackson.
“The reason we are here is to preserve our history,” said Sherry Taylor, president, Tulip Grove Chapter U.S. Daughters of 1812. “Robert was a Democrat statesman born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania — and in the War of 1812, Robert served in the 3rd Tennessee Regiment.”
“He established his home near Jackson in 1823, and worked as a merchant, surveyor, lawyer and promoter,” Taylor said. “Robert also was the Register of the Western Land District and U.S. Marshal for the Western District (from) 1836-37.”
Taylor said Chester Street was also named after him, and he was family to Andrew Jackson. His wife was a niece to Andrew Jackson.
George M. Mavromatis, a Judicial Security Inspector, U.S. Department of Justice United States Marshals Service in Memphis, said President George Washington appointed the first 13 U.S. marshals in 1789.
The U.S. Marshals Service remains the nation’s oldest and most versatile federal law enforcement agency.
“Today, the U.S. Marshals Service is the enforcement arm of the federal courts and is involved in virtually every federal law enforcement initiative,” Mavromatis said. “Our U.S. marshals are presidentially appointed, one for the 94 judicial districts, with approximately 4,000 deputy U.S. marshals.”
Mavromatis said marshals continue to carry out a vast array of duties to include judicial security, protections of the deputy attorney general, supreme court justices and fugitive operations.
“We arrest more federal fugitives than any other agency across the nation,” Mavromatis said. “We average more than 330 fugitive arrests each day and 123,000 fugitives yearly. In 1789, George Washington first appointed marshals with the directive to handle all lawful precepts,” Mavromatis said. “I think this still holds true today, as we continue to evolve and add to our vast array of missions.”
