ME Franklin Co Jackson Plantation map.png
Jackson was for three periods a sprawling plantation, now extinct and split into:

1. Jackson Plantation 1845-1857 was first organized from Township 4 R3 BKP (Wyman), Township 1 R3 WBKP (Coplin), Township 2 R3 WBKP (Lang), and Number 1 R4 Plantation (Eustis) in 1845; and lost that organization by 1855 when Jackson Plantation was reconstituted.[2] [3]

2. Jackson Plantation 1857-1866 had a major reorganization in 1857 involving its southern areas of the future Wyman, Coplin, and Lang. But to the north Eustis seceded and was no longer part of Jackson Plantation.[2] [4]

3. Jackson Plantation 1866-1895 had a third major reorganization in 1866 when Coplin Plantation and Lang Plantation were set off.[5] [6] The only remaining piece of the Jackson Plantation left was Wyman, which apparently carried the Jackson name and status until 1895 when Jackson went extinct, and Wyman Township was probably formed.[7]
