Welcome to the Davey Jackson Chapter Website
Chapter members come from scenic Jackson Hole, Wyoming country in
the shadow of the Teton Mountain Range. The town of Jackson was named
from David E. Jackson, a trapper working with General William Ashley of
St. Louis trapping beaver in the area in the early 1800's. The
second word, "Hole" refers to the opening in the mountains which leads
to the town site.
