301 John Scott was a graduate from St. Joseph's College, Bardstown, Kentucky, in 1827. Among others of his classmates at this college were Robert W. Johnson (afterward United States Senator from Arkansas and William F. Pope ( who was killed in a duel in Arkansas by C. F. M. Noland ). Captain Scott read law in the office of his father at Little Rock in 1828-29, and was admitted to the bar in 1848, but never had practiced. In 1828 he moved with his father to Pope County, Arkansas, and there he has resided ever since, with the exception of two years, 1834 and 1835, after his marriage, which he spent in Johnson County. He carried on a farm for several years, and from 1847 of 1853 he was engaged in merchandising at Dover, Arkansas. During the Civil War he lost fifteen Negroes and from 1867 to 1872 he was again engaged in mercantile pursuits.

He is the owner of two farms, one on the Arkansas River consisting of 500 acres and the other , consisting of 600 acres, near Dover, Arkansas. One - half of each is under cultivation. He owns lots and building at Eureka Springs, and is worth, all together, not less than $40,000.00, all the results of his own industry and perseverance.

One of his first expeditions to make money was to take a flatboat, loaded with cattle and corn, down to New Orleans. In 1853 he crossed the plains to California with several hundred head of cattle, obtaining fabulous prices (page 258) for them, realizing $100.00 per head. In 1838 Captain Scott became a Master Mason in Franklin Lodge #9, Johnson County, Arkansas, but was a member of no other secret organization.

He was a Whig in politics until the formation of the Democratic Party, and then became a Democrat from necessity. In 1878 he was a member of the State Democratic Central Committee. He opposed secession until it became an accepted fact.

Captain Scott has held many positions of trust and honor, and it may truthfully be said of him that the offices which he has had the honor to fill, sought the man and not the man the office. From 1842 to 1850 he was clerk of the Circuit, County, and Probate Courts and Ex-Officio Recorder of Pope County, Arkansas. In 1873 he was State Senator for Pope County, Conway and Searcy Counties, and in 1874 he served as a member of the Constitutional Convention (of the State of Arkansas) from Pope County. He has served twice as a special Judge of the Circuit Court at Dover. Many years previous to this ( In 1830 ) he served as Deputy United States Marshal under his uncle, George W. Scott ( United States Marshal for the Territory of Arkansas ), and in that capacity tool the first Census of Pope County, Arkansas.

In 1836 Captain Scott commanded a volunteer company of United States Cavalry under General E. P. Gaines, during the Florida War, and hence his title Captain. In 1861 he raised a company for State service, which was transferred to the Confederate Service, and he Commanded a squadron of four companies, serving in the Army until consequence of sickness, he was compelled to retire from the field. He participated in the Battles of Elk Horn and Farmington.

He was married in Johnson County, Arkansas, on December 11, 1834 to Miss Nancy Evans Jamison, a native of Potosi, Washington Coun County, Missouri. She was born May 16, 1816, and the daughter of Judge George Jamison of Johnson County, Arkansas. Her father was a native of Pennsylvania, of Scotch descent, and was a Millwright by trade. Her mother, formerly Miss Mary D. Logan, was of a Kentucky family originally from Pennsylvania. She was a cousin of James Logan, who was a member of the Legislature from Missouri and Creek Agent at Verdigris, Indian Territory. Mrs Scott was a charming, pleasant lady to meet and was remarkably hansom. She died on October 13, 1878, in full communion with the Methodist Episcopal Church South.

By his marriage Captain Scott became the father of three children: Andrew H. Scott, who was born at Dover, Arkansas on December 18, 1840, taking his literary degree at Exeter College, New Hampshire, and his Medical Degree from the Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. he is now one of the first Physicians of Little Rock, Arkansas. He married Miss R. Kate Embry, daughter of Col. Ben T. Embry, who is a merchant and planter of Atkins, Arkansas. They have four children: Ben Embry, John R. Homer, Leonora and Andrew Horrace: Mary Eliza Scott, born at Dover, Arkansas on August 11, 1844, and died September 4, 1860, and whose birth is erroneously stated in the work of the Encyclopedia of the New West as being in 1834. Leonara Augusta Scott, born at Dover, Arkansas on October 16, 1847, and educated at Little Rock and Fayetteville. She married H. Clabe Howell. Merchant , a member of the Legislature and a native of Kentucky. He died June 21, 1884 leaving these children: Andrew R. Howell. a graduate of Jefferson medical College, Pennsylvania, living at Little Rock, Arkansas: Emma Scott Howell, : Augusta H. Howell: Henry A Howell: Kate E. Howell: and Mary Howell. Mrs. Howell was married the second time on July 2, 1887, to George Eller Howell, a nephew of her former husband. One child, Elbert Homer Howell, was the result of this union.

Captain Scott is not a member of any Church, but is a believer in the Christian Religion. Besides his own children, Captain Scott has raised about nine orphan children.

332 Marshal Jamison was born February 1, 1818, in Potosi, Washington County, Missouri, the second of eleven children born to Isaac and Mary Jamison. He was educated to be a doctor.

At Richmond, Missouri on October 21, 1845, he was married to Mary Montague Carpenter, who was born on December 18, 1823, in Plymouth, Vermont.

They lived in Booneville, Missouri when their first son James Homer Jamison was born May 1, 1848.

Marshal was in the gold fields of California in 1849 and was fairly successful. After he returned to Boonesville, Missouri, the family moved to Covington, Kentucky. Marshal was a Steamboat Captain going up and down the Ohio river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Across the river at Covington, the second son George Marshall Jamison was born on September 16, 1852. Mary never recovered from the birth and died six months later. Marshal kept his wife in State three weeks in a vault awaiting the arrival of relatives. When the time of interment came and they opened the casket, the flesh fell from the bones of her he loved so dearly. In pursuit of peace of mind he left Covington with his two sons; he left by steamboat which sank and gave all on board a soaking; but he continued on his way to Ford, Iowa to live near two brother-in-laws, Charles H. and James Carpenter. Marshal was a millwright, and had his own kiln for drying walnut and other lumber; He was a carpenter and made his own furniture and that of others. Some pieces are still used today and are highly valuable. He was artistic and clever with a paintbrush.

Marshal married for convenience shortly after arriving in Iowa . She too died. There may have been a child or two, raised by the wife's parents.

A cousin of Marshal's first wife Mary, became his third wife. She was Hannah Louise Burt, born February 16, 1855, in Plymouth, Vermont. There were no children from this marriage.

The South River flowed through the farm where Marshal and Hannah lived. James Homer Jamison was drown when he stepped into a hole while swimming with friends. This was May 10, 1859 when he was 11 years old.

Early in 1866, Marshal was seriously injured when loading a log on a sled pulled by a five ox hitch. He pushed his son George out of the way and received a blow which resulted in his death after several months of suffering. Marshal died November 10, 1866; he was forty-eight years old. Hannah Louise died June 8, 1905 of a heart attack. They are buried in the Hartford, Iowa Cemetery, near James Homer and the Carpenter relatives.

From a notebook of George Marshall Jamison: "It was on November 10, 1866, just as the sun was resting beneath the western horizon, I was at my dear Father's dying bed. I looked at the people in the room. I looked at the old fireplace where I had so often sat with Father and enjoyed his tender care of me. I looked at his dying form, my Uncle Charles H. Carpenter sat beside the bed, Father's hand in his, my Step-Mother stood at the head of his pillowed bed, she spoke to him ( I do not know the words) he looked up to see her face and calmly said " It is going easy" and looking as if some new scene had burst upon him now he repeated, Mary! Mary!, that was my Mother's name. Had she been permitted to come and escort my dear Father and her Husband in their young and happy years?"

CAPT. HENRY GEORGE JAMES

Few men have had a more interesting, as well as serviceable career than the
late Capt. Henry George James, a native of Camborne, Cornwall, England, and the
son of William and Elizabeth Eva James, who had three sons, all born at
Camborne, the others having been Edward and William. The elder James, a
blacksmith by trade, was a member of an English exploring company which visited
South America, and having accidentally broken his ankle, he was carried over the
Andes Mountains lashed to a chair strapped to the back of a stalwart native.
Returning to England, he immigrated to the United States, about 1832. His
brother, Edward, took part in the Black Hawk War. He was a correspondent of the
St. Louis Democrat and lost his life in war journalistic service. During the
trouble with the Indians in this Black Hawk outbreak, the men of Iowa County,
Wis., formed companies for drill, and so did their sons; and thus it happened
that Henry G. James was dubbed "Captain," a title he always bore.

He came out to California in 1850, walking across the Isthmus of Panama in
the more primitive days before the railroad was built there, and upon his
arrival at Sonora, Tuolumne County, he engaged in mining. Later he went into the
cattle business and in time became one of the largest cattle men in Stanislaus
County, and for twenty years he furnished cattle, hogs and sheep to wholesale
butchers in San Francisco. During his experience in furnishing beef for a
butcher firm in Sonora, he once made a journey to the coast to purchase stock;
meeting a company of men in charge of a band of steers, Capt. James bought what
he wanted and started to drive them home. Before he had traveled far he was
overtaken by the real owners of the steers, who informed him that the cattle had
been stolen. The Captain and his companions pursued the thieves to San
Francisco, where they obtained the assistance of Capt. Harry Love, a famous
detective of that time, by whom one of the thieves was arrested. The other made
his escape. While on the way back with their prisoner, Captain James and party
stopped to have lunch and ostensibly to give the prisoner a trial. They assumed
an air of carelessness and the thief thought that it would be a good opportunity
to escape; so he crawled off into the chaparral; but several shots followed him
and he was killed. No one knew whose shot did the business.

In 1873, at Salida, Stanislaus County, Captain James was married to Miss
Nannie Jamison, the daughter of A. H. Jamison, a native of Arkansas, who served
for two terms as supervisor in Stanislaus County when the county seat was at
Knights Ferry. One daughter married John R. Barnett, sheriff of Madera County.
Captain James was a Democrat and a sympathizer with, and an active supporter of
the Confederacy of the Southern States. He served at one time as a trustee of
Modesto. He belonged to the Masons and assisted with their ritual at the laying
of the cornerstone of the Stanislaus County court house. He died at the home of
his sister, Mrs. Root, at Salida in 1901 or 1902.

352 My father had no palette in his mouth and had a speech problem. He never went to school because he said the teachers could not understand his words. He always told me when he was very small, he was sickly so his mother put whiskey into his milk and that kept him alive. He was a great prospector and collected all kinds of rocks. He was a great swimmer and loved to go fishing. He was not much of a hunter, but could cook the best fried chicken ever tasted. He had several strokes and died due to Pneumonia which was complicated by the strokes. he was paralyzed after his strokes and unable to speak in his last days. He died with me sitting by his bed and holding his hand. My mother and her family always called him :Bill" but his friends and his family called him "Will". I always think of him as "Will".

356 Narcissa was a Miller, the jamisons (family legends say) were in the same wagon train going west in 1850-Narcissa and Edward walked the whole way. Their marriage did not go well and she lost a number of kids (maybe multibe births --her daughter was to have triplets and twins-all of whom died in infancy), the couple wagon-trained back to Arkansas then he went back west alone. Narcissa later married a Mr French, still later went to Texas, where she lived with grandaughters well into her nineties. My wife has a lot of information about the Millers but we know very little about the Jamisons--not even if we have cousins we don't know about.

Information Provided by Charles Ogilvie 8/24/15

Narcissa passed while at the home of her granddaughter, Dorris Edwards in McGregor, Texas in 1945.

Stories related to us by Jack Olgivie:
Narcissa was three years old when her dad (Joseph Miller) went as a Methodist Minister to California. He was to serve the miners and he did as he set out to do.
When land played out for gold searching the miners wanted the Indian land adjoining. There was a big fallout ending in fights with the NEZ Perce Indian tribe. Joseph and his wife went to the NEZ Perce joining the early Missionaries.

Narcissa's daughter, Ada Lee Jamison, was born 9-1-1870 in Merced, CA. We understand the family, George and Narcissa, went to the Oklahoma Territory for the land rush. George setup the first newspaper in at Ada, Oklahoma. After living there for a time George returned to California sending Marcissa and Ada to Benton, Arkansas with family. Unknown about Albert Sidney at this time.

384 PIEDMONT MISSOURI BANNER of March 19, 1896;

Mary Jame Black was born in August County, Virginia on 10 April 1823. Her maiden name was Jamison, On 15 March 1842, she married Samuel Black. After a married life of nearly 54 years, she died at her home near Patterson, Missouri on 6 march 1896, age 72 years, 10 months, 26 days. Samuel Black, her husband, who was some 10 years her senior, still lives, but with such feeble hold on life that his death at any time would be no surprise to his children.

Mrs. Black was the mother of 11 children, whom still survive her. They are married except the youngest daughter Ella, who has remained at home to care for her parents in their declining years. For 37 years, Mrs. Black has had active membership in the Old School Presbyterian Church. The class at Patterson will miss her for she was always ready and active to assist in any church enterprises. She was truly a good woman, raised a most excellent family and always rendered any needed assistance to her neighbors in distress, She was a woman strong in her convictions of right and when she once settled a question in her mind, nothing could change her. In presence of a large concourse of relatives, friends, and neighbors, her body was tenderly laid in the tomb to await the resurrection.
