Cash struggled with addictions to alcohol and drugs, watched his personal life flounder, and spent nights in jails across America. He was the fourth of seven children, 4 boys and 3 girls. At home, J. His older brother Jack, with whom he was very close, was fatally injured at the high school he was working in. He was pulled into an unguarded table saw while cutting oak into fence posts, and was almost cut in two; he died from his injuries a week later. In his autobiography, Cash spoke of the guilt he felt over this incident, as he, his mother, and even Jack himself all had a deep sense of foreboding about that particular day. His mother urged Jack to skip work and go fishing with his brother, but he insisted on working to bring the money home to his family.
