Jackson was for three periods a sprawling plantation, now extinct and split into:

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

2. Jackson Plantation was reorganized a second time again in 1857 from the south part of what became Wyman, Coplin, and Lang. But to the north Eustis seceded and was no longer part of Jackson Plantation. This second Jackson Plantation at least partially dissolved in 1859.[1] [3]

Coplin Plantation was organized from a portion of Jackson Plantation in 1866.[4]

3. Jackson Plantation And Lang Plantation was organized out of the remaining portion of Jackson Plantation in 1895.[5]
