223 Donald Jamison interviewed Nina Jamison on July 10 1976. Nina stated the following;

"When I was born Mama had to ride 12 miles on horseback to reach the nearest wagon road. We moved twice to Island Mountain. When Ralph reached school age the family moved to Covelo. Papa had a good singing voice and played the violin. When he was growing up in Ukiah he sang in the Methodist Church. Mama stated that her parents were both Dutch and had come from Holland to Pennsylvania. ( The census list their birth places as Pennsylvania).
As a child I remember people saying that The Jamison's were descendants of Pocahontas. Some of The Williams girls were proud of this heritage.
I always heard that the Begley's had Indian blood. I knew a Clarence Wade who had married a Mrs. Banks. She was a lot older than he was, they lived in Redwood Valley. When we were children we were informed that Grandpa Jamison was killed by a horse on East Road in Redwood Valley before his last child was born. Father bought musical instruments for all the girls. Edna and Rodney were in the same grade as Edna did not start early. The longest that we stayed in one place was when we lived in Covelo for six years.
John and Ella Day started an Inn where the present Van Arsdale Dam is. Web Jamison is suppose to be buried in Sacramento, California. ( A tombstone in Ukiah Cemetery list Web Jamison with the Hollingsworth's. Record show that Web bought the plot).

226 Elisha when but seventeen, in December 1780, had been taken prisoner, by the Indians, whose leader was a Seneca Chief, and had been with his tribe at the Battle July 3, 1778. He kept young Harvey with him for about a year. The summer of 1781, they spent in the hunting grounds about Green Bay. After returning to Montreal the Chief preferred to barter his prisoner for several gallons of rum. A Scotch trader, was the purchaser who kept him as a clerk, and offered to adopt him as son and heir, but his secret wishes were for home and liberty. he found the means to inform his friends of his situation, who effected his release during the fall of 1782. At the same time of the capture of Elisha, his father, sister, Louis Lucy Bulford and George P. Ransom were also captured at the home of the father, Benjamin Harvey. Ransom being a soldier in full dress, was taken to Montreal and given to the Military authorities, from that place he was taken up the St. Lawrence to Prisoner's Island, from which he made his escape the following summer after suffering many indignities and hardships.

The two girls were taken a few miles into the forest when a consultation was held by their captors, who sere six in number, that resulted, unexpectedly, in their release. After the old Chief had painted them, in the usual manner of release captives, and told them to tell Col. Butler, "I put on this paint."

Benjamin Harvey, the father was nearly seventy years old and the hardships endured on several days march in the winter, enfeebled him so much that his captors held a council to determine his Fate. His scalp would be valuable in the British market, therefore he was bound to a tree in such a manner that he could not move in any way, when the old Chief gave to each three younger Indians a tomahawk and pointed towards the captives head. The first, flourishing his tomahawk with a swift motion and a thrilling whoop, hurled it at the bound head of the helpless victim. But he missed his aim, and awaited the skill of the second to hit the mark, with stoic firmness. The second, then also missed the target by a few inches, then the third, with the same results.

The whole party now became furious. The Chief decided that the "Great Spirit" had guarded the captive, while the other two contended that the lack of skill in the executioners was the cause. But the Chief prevailed, unbound the prisoner, pointed to the trail they had made in reaching that place and said "go". The Indians then sullenly went onward toward Canada with the two young men; while the enfeebled, sick old man, now bewildered by the excitement, and agony of the past few days, wandered about several days before he came to the river, that directed his Course homeward.

Greene County, Arkansas

Beliew Community

Many Greene Countians today well remember "Uncle Charlie" Beliew. Few citizens in the county have been better known, or more respected. And although his descendants are scattered throughout the county, years of search and inquiry has reveled that very little was known of Uncle Charlie's past. After numerous interviews with old-timers from the Lafe area, as well as a search of county records and U.S. census records, the following information was obtained.

Charles Cooper Beliew was born in Gibson County, Tennessee, on October 25, 1868. He was orphaned at an early age, and was taken to live with his uncle and aunt, Aaron and Nancy Beliew. He came with them from Dresden, Tennessee to Greene County in 1886. Aaron Beliew had purchased forty acres of land from the St. Louis Iron Mountain Railroad (Section 21, Twp. 18 No., Range 5 East) on July 10, 1886; and another forty acres adjoining this on August 9, 1897. One acre of this was donated by Mr. Beliew for establishing a Christian Church and adjacent cemetery. The remaining 79 acres were sold to Mr. L.P. Johns on Dec. 4, 1901. Both Nancy and Aaron Beliew died shortly after 1901 and were the first persons buried in the county graveyard. Both the church and the cemetery were referred to as "Beliew Hill".

Beliew Hill Church was a Christian Church, situated at the southwest corner of the cemetery. The old Beliew cabin was approximately 200 yards down from the southeast corner of the cemetery. Uncle Charlie grew up, and eventually bought much of the land in the area. The graves of Aaron and Nancy Beliew are marked only by small white concrete markers, bearing no inscriptions. For many years the two graves were covered with a brick mausoleum, but this gradually crumbled and was removed from the cemetery.

On May 17, 1891, Charlie Beliew was married to Sarah Emmaline Jamison, long known by friends and relatives as "Aunt Liney". To them were born four children: Hattie, who died at three days of age; Enos, who married Laura Swindle; Hoyt, who married Beulah Tarrance; later Pat Breckenridge; and Lillie May, who died at the age of seventeen, shortly after being married to Obe Owen.

The Beliew family remained in the Union - Breckenridge Township area for a number of years, continuing to farm. However, they later moved to Rector, where "Uncle Charlie" died July 18, 1958. "Aunt Liney" died October 10, 1962.

240 Francis (Bud) was 33 when they married. He was divorced from his first wife. Family F1639
241 Francis Jamison and his brother Isaac Jamison were both killed defending the Washington County Courthouse. They enlisted into Captain Cook's Company E of the 50th Regiment, U.S. Army.


On the morning of the 27th. of September, 1863 Confederate General Joseph Shelby sent detachments throughout the eastern part of Washington County, Missouri. Fearing the impending onslaught, many citizens and merchants fled Potosi with what valuables they could carry by horses and wagon. County records and large quantities of goods were left behind.

Potosi was attacked first at around noon by about 600 soldiers of Shelby's advance. When John Meyers, an elderly citizen and veteran of the War of 1812, heard the rebels were advancing on the town, he prepared to defend it. He provided himself with three guns, loaded them all and took position upon his porch. As the rebels charged into town, he opened fire upon them wounding one of them. They rushed upon him and shot him dead on his porch, then riddled his lifeless body with bullets and trampled over him as they proceeded to ransack his home.

Stationed at Potosi were 26 Union Soldiers of Company E, 50th Regiment Infantry, Missouri Volunteers under command of Captain Cook of Old Mines and Col. Madison Miller. They , along with about 130 citizens attempted to resist, but the Confederates charged and chased them into the Courthouse. Here they bravely continued their defense. The Rebels then placed a cannon near the railroad depot and began to bombard the courthouse. According to Captain Cook, one of the shells burst in the courtroom where 30 people were present, but miraculously no one even received a scratch. As the bombardment continued, citizens of all denominations prayed within the Walls of the new St. James Catholic Church, where they had taken refuge, about a block north of the Courthouse. After the rebels fired their artillery 10 or 12 times, the defenders of the Courthouse were compelled to wave the white flag and surrender, although some fled and managed to escape.

The men were then marched out and inspected and "some of those who had by their devotion to the Union Flag, rendered themselves obnoxious to the rebels" were taken out in front of the Courthouse and shot, among those shot were Francis Madison Jamison and his brother Isaac Webster Jamison, Jr. The remaining men were then robbed of money, stripped of clothing, shoes and blankets and marched off as prisoners of war. Thomas Casey and John Roach were also taken prisoner and shot by mistake. They were not members of Company E, but were actually southern sympathizers.

Prisoners that had been captured at Potosi were herded like sheep into a corral where they were kept without shelter. At 11:00 one night Bill Wiloughby, the Quantrill of this raid, went into the coral and called out the names of five men; I.K. Walker, Mathew Jamison, William Murphy, Allen Glore and Robert Glore. Only Walker and Jamison were present. They were taken from among the other prisoners and about an hour later, at midnight, a volley of shots was heard. Everyone knew Walker and Jamison had been shot but no one said a word. After Wiloughby had left town, two days later citizens found the bodies of Walker and Jamison lying in a deserted mineral pit, mutilated almost beyond recognition and partially covered with leaves.

Marriage is listed in the "Kentucky Marriage Records" published by Genealogical Publishing Company. Records show Robert Jameson / Jamison as a witness.

The marriage license was issued on February. 22, 1808, The marriage was March 10, 1808 and was preformed by John Wilson, J.P

George Jamison , according to the Bible records migrated to Breton,( now known as Potosi) Washington County, Missouri and arrived there May 3rd, 1814. From there they removed to William Hills Saw Mill in Pinery, Missouri October 21, 1817, but by May of 1818 they were in their own home on Bate's Creek, Washington County, Missouri. By March 13 1820 they moved once again to Mill Creek. But they were still not happy for they moved for the last time on November 7th 1830 from Washington County, Missouri and finally settled December 22nd of that year at Jonathan Logan's ( Polly's Father) home in Pope County, Arkansas. Mrs. Jamison's parents Jonathan and Frances Logan set out from Christian County, Kentucky to St. Francis River in Lousiana November 27, 1808.


DIED: In Johnson County, near Morrison's Bluff, on Saturday, the 26th of March, after an illness of only seven days, George Jamison, of pleurisy, in the fifty-sixth year of his age. Judge Jamison emigrated to this Territory from Missouri, previous to the deluge of the Arkansas River, which laid waste a beautiful farm, swept off his houses, and drowned all his horses, cattle, hogs, etc., leaving him for a while almost destitute of the conveniences of life. A few short months later, and he sustained a still greater loss - the bereavement of his bosom friend and partner. Since which his life has been up to the moment of his death, a series of misfortunes. His greatest solicitude was for his children, whom he has left to mourn his speedy departure. Innumerable friends have been deprived of a generous, high-minded and sincere friend.


What an awful time the family must have had when the terrible floods wiped them out in 1833. Then Polly died two or three months after giving birth to Frances Thurman, who followed her mother in August of that same year, 1834. The children, at their mother's death, ranged in age from three to twenty-five. Then their father died two years later. Who cared for them after that? The 1840 Pope County Census shows that both R. W. Jamison and J.R.H. Scott, Nancy Evans husband, had young household members who could not have been their own children. Where were George Washington and Sally Jamison living in 1840, after having been married in 1839?


George Jamison is mentioned as a Justice of the Peace who performed at fifteen weddings from October 18, 1823 to July 8, 1830. The 1823 wedding was that of Thomas Jamison and Matilda McAdams. On March 2, 1826 he married J.F. Mudd and Eliza S. Scott.

268 History of Willits Cemetery

As with most cemeteries, there are many older unmarked graves in this
one. This cemetery is the second one for the town of Willits, Mendocino County,
California. It was originally established as the I.O.O.F. Cemetery, with the
first burials being for the Odd Fellows and their family members. This cemetery
is maintained by the Cemetery District of the Redwoods. They have a card index
that covers this cemetery and those of Little Lake and Laytonville. Their
records have been copied and are housed at the Mendocino County Historical
Society, Held-Poage Research Library, 603 W. Perkins St., Ukiah, CA 95482.

To find this cemetery, drive west out of Willits on Highway 20, going towards
Ft. Bragg. The cemetery is located up on a small hill on the north side of

The dates of Robert Jemison II and Mrs. Margaret Kirkham-Ayers are from the original family bible owned by Mrs. Helen C. (Jemison) Plane of Atlanta, Ga. It was this Robert who started using the spelling of Jemison. Owen's Dictionary of Alabama Biography , page 902 of volume III, Quotes : Robert and Margaret Kirkham, both of Irish descent, the former a Revolutionary Soldier of Lincoln Co. Georgia. I have not found him in my DAR PATRIOT INDEX, CENTENNIAL EDITION. At the tome of his death he was a very wealthy planter for that time in the early history of Georgia. His will was dated the last day of Dec. 1799. The will itself seems not to have been probated until Nov. 30, 1801, when an inventory had been finished and the list is 10 pages long in the Court record. It totaled around $50,000. The following was recorded: "We, the undersigned subscribers having met. on Monday, the 30th day of October, 1801, have settled and divided the above mentioned estate as per the statement made and agreeable to an order pending the Court of Ordinary of Lincoln Co., Georgia to us directed. It states: Margaret Jemerson, Jemison, Legatee. Joseph Jemison; Samuel Jemison; Elizabeth Jemison; Artemesia Jemison; The legatee for Robert was Thomas Curry. Legatee for Artemesia was William Hunter; Henry legatee for Henry Jemison was William Hunter; Samuel was young so he was appointed a guardian (unreadable); Legatee for Elizabeth was Shadrach Mims. Sarah the wife of Thomas Jemison did not receive anything in the will as she had been given a plantation and slaves for her wedding dowry. Besides the land they each received $735.20 each. The acreage received by each reads: Artemisia Jemison 97 acres; Henry Jemison 198 acres; Elizabeth Jemison 164 acres; Robert Jemison 220 acres; Wiliam Jemison 220 acres;Samuel Jemison 250 acres. The Will had already been probated. The widow, Margaret, was given a home and a specified amount in the original will. She later married William Hunter and was given the amount of $60 yearly to resend all dower rights. Guardians were appointed for Robert and Henry as they were underage. Robert was 13 and Henry was 7.

289 It is assumed that Enos and Nancy Jamison moved from Montgomery County, Tennessee to Gibson County, Tennessee sometime between 1850 and 1860.. It is also assumed that Robert Jamison (age 23 in 1850 and age 35 in 1860 ) is also a son of Enos and Nancy Jamison due to the fact that he also moved from Montgomery County to Gibson County during the same time period and that in 1860 he employed Chesterfield Jamison as a laborer. It is also assumed that Rita Vick was the mother of Ann Jamison, Robert Jamison's wife.

The J. Jamison listed in the 1860 Gibson County, Tennessee census is belived to be Josiah C. Jamison, son of Enos and Nancy Jamison, due to the fact that the ages are reasonably close, and that his youngest child is named Nancy, possibly after his mother. Nothing is known at this time about Sam Jamison.

Enos Jamison was born in Virginia and was a farmer all his life. He is listed in Montgomery County, Tennessee in 1850 and in Gibson County, Tennessee in 1860, the following people were listed in both: Jamison, Enos, 57 year of age,
Nancy 50 years of age
Elizabeth 30 years of age
Rebecca 25 years of age
Josiah 10 years of age

Biographical Sketch of Robert W. Jameson, Webster County, Missouri

>From "History of Laclede, Camden, Dallas, Webster, Wright, Texas,
Pulaski, Phelps and Dent Counties, Missouri" The Goodspeed Publishing
Company, 1889.

Hon. Robert W. Jameson is a son of Samuel and Rebecca (Rease) Jameson,
who were born in New Jersey and Delaware, respectively, and were marr-
ied in Tennessee. Some six years after the latter event they immigra-
ted to Christian county, Kentucky, and at the end of seven years took
up their abode in Knox county, where they made their home for thirteen
years. Monroe county, Tenn., then became their home, and there the
father died in 1836. Robert W. Jameson was born in Knox county, Ky.,
June 8, 1811 and made his home with his parents until he attained his
majority, receiving the greater part of his education in Tennessee.
In 1837 he was married, in McMinn county, to Miss Esther L. Thomas, a
native of Alabama, and after his marriage continued to reside in Tenn.,
engaged in farming until 1843, when in the spring of that year he
started overland with ox teams to Missouri, but was delayed by sickness
and did not reach this state until the following August. He has now
500 acres of valuable land, with 200 acres under cultivation, and is
considered one of the thrifty farmers of Webster county. He was raised
a Whig in politics, and held to that party until the Rebellion, and
since that time has supported the principles of the Democratic party.
He served as justice of the peace eight years, and one term as judge,
when Webster was a part of Greene county, and after it was made a sep-
arate county served as its judge one term. He was elected a delegate
to the convention called to pass ordinances of secession, and helped to
defeat that measure. In 1864 he was elected to represent Webster
county in the State Legislature, and served through two sessions of
that body, being re-elected in 1876, and served one term with honor to
himself and to the satisfaction of his constituents. Since that time
he has been retired from politics. His wife died June 23, 1860, having
borne eleven children, seven of whom are living: Thomas T., Sarah M.
(wife of Dr. J. M. Hunt), Z. T., Martha E. (wife of J. B. Owens), Nancy
F., Abigail J. and Robert W. Mr. Jameson is a Master Mason.

JAMESON, JOHN PEN. 214 1783-1789

I do certify that John Jameson enlisted for 18 months the 1st April 1779
and served as a serjeant in Col. Buford's Detachment and he was captured at
Buford's Defeat after receiving several wounds--he never received any pay and
was exchanged at __ after the expiration of he time he was enlisted. K. BONYAR,
LT. 1ST REGT. 8 OCT. 1793.

On examination find John James has received several wounds by the broad
sword of bayonet--two wound on the left side of the head and two on the back of
the head which he says at times affect him greatly and hurt him truly. Another
wound on the belly which has occasioned a pitiful misfortune, he complains much
of and I think with reason. Three fingers on the right hand are greatly injured
and disabled and a wound near the humerous of the right arm had done
considerable injury. Gen'l Highton and I-and he has also rec'd-think him
considerably disabled from supporting himself by hard Labor and his sufferings
merit compensation. W. Foushes, surg. May 17, 1787

A. C. Gordon, Esq., of Staunton, Va., writes: "Manuscripts now in the possession of Harry
A. Cockburn, Esq., of Lower Grosvenor Place, S. W., London, show that on August 29, 1782,
Margaret Jameson, born in Virginia 16th May, 1764, married (probably in Virginia) James
McDowall, of the family of Macdowell of 'Garthland', Scotland, and had issue three
daughters, who married three Scotch judges, Lord Cockburn, Lord Fullerton and Lord
Dundrenness. A fourth daughter, Fenella McDowall, married a Cunningham. Who was Margaret
Jameson's father?

"Mr. Stanard thinks that he was a Neil Jameson, of Norfolk, who was a Tory, and went to
New York about the time of the Revolution. You will see from Mr. Cockburn's letters that
there was a connection between these Jameson's and the Parkers and Ellegoods. I hope you can
find out something about them."

The following extracts from the letters of Mr. Cockburn to Mr. Gordon will afford further

6 January, 1904. "It seems that about 1864 some people of the name of Hanna & a lady
Parker were trying to discover how they were related to McDowall, & all they knew was that
it was somehow through Margaret Jameson MacDowall. However, all these people are dead &
gone, & the letters I have now got are quite disjointed, so it is rather difficult to make out
the whole story. But I enclose copy of an old letter & other extracts which may throw some
light on the subject. I take it that 'Cousin Jameson was mother of Margaret (Mrs. McDowall),
& that the Neil in New York was Margaret's brother, not father."

Page 68.

22 March, 1904. "Some days ago I found a Parker family in Burke's Landed Gentry who are
descended from Ellegoods of Virginia. I wrote to Mr. C. S. Parker, who lives in London &
in Ayrshire, Scotland, asking him if he knew of any Ellegood-Jameson-McDowall connection.
His reply does not help much, but it is rather interesting, & I give you some extracts from

"'His grandfather was son of Margaret Ellegood. She married James Parker, then residing
at Woodlands, Jamestown, in the Colony of Virginia. On the outbreak of the Revolutionary
war he took the English side, & served as Capt. & Quartermaster in the King's Army. Margaret
Ellegood was of a French family. I have it under her husband's hand that her father (or it

may have been her grandfather) as a boy came over from France on the recovation of the Edict
of Nantes, 1685. The father's name was Guillaume a la Guerre. The Virginians altered it
to Ellegood! She had a brother Jacob, from whom descended Canon Ellegood, still living at
Montreal. She had also sisters; one was Mrs. Aitcheson; another was married to Elmsley, the
well-known Greek Scholar. Perhaps a third sister was Mrs. Jameson; the name sounds familiar
to me. At any rate, there were McDowall related to the Ellegoods, for my grandfather &
his elder brother were sent over as boys from Virginia to stay with a family of that name
in Edinburgh.'

"Mr. Parker then goes on to say that 'he has notes & papers in Scotland (Fairlee), & when
he goes North he will see if he can find out anything definite, but that may not be for some
months to Come Mrs. Jameson, however, can hardly have been a sister of Mary Ellegood
(Mrs. Parker), as Mary Aitcheson, writing to her aunt, Mrs. Parker, talks of Cousin Jameson,
not Aunt Jameson."

The following extracts are sent by Mr. Cockburn as from old letters in his possession:

A letter, dated 1864, says: "We were reputed cousins for seventy years. In 1815 the
Ellegoods were so recognized by the children of James McDowall, who say their mother was a
Margaret Jameson, from Virginia, of the Ellegood stock. Capt. James Parker married Margaret
Jameson. By giving the clues to the surviving Ellegoods (by next mail), I hope to get at
the solution of some family problems."

Extract of a letter from Mary Aitcheson to her aunt in Lon-

Page 69.

don (Mrs. Capt. Parker), dated Eastwood, Va., 16 April, 1785:

"Cousin Jameson was very well when I last heard from her. She has got her house finished,
& calls it her 'Palace. I am always honored with Neil's room, as being one of her greatest
favorites, for it is not every one who is honored with his room. I believe him in New York
with his father, & he has never been in Virginia since you left us (about 1782). His mother
is dying to see him & she needs talks of any one else."

Another letter says:

"James Gilchrist to Capt. James Parker, Halifax, Dec 22, 1774.

"Nothing going on here but Associations & Committees, though they are not so violent
against the South as with you. I was lately in Mecklenburg, in Virginia, where one Malachi
Macalle (?) was carrying about a paper for expelling out of the country all Scotch men, to
which he had got 300 names. Hower, for his ill-bred invections against that country in
general & against some individuals in particular, the Parson of the Parish (one Cameron from
the Highlands) followed him & gave him a good & most complete caning. Andrew Miller has
refused signing here, & the Committee, having enquired, find Congress has no power to compel
him; but as he is a favorite, they agree that if he does not violate the Association, it is
the same thing as if he had signed."

[There is no doubt that the records of Princess Anne and Norfolk counties would throw much
light upon the matter of the above letters.
William Aitcheson died at Rose Hall, Princess Anne county, and his tombstone has a coat-
of-arms, much defaced. I have not a copy of his will, but it is dated August 13, 1774, and
proved June 12, 1777.
Neil Jameson was a Scotch merchant, and in 1775 was a member of the Revolutionary
Committee for Norfolk borough. But he would not go to the full extent of independence, and
so left the colony.
Neil Jameson married Pembroke Thoroughgood, daughter of John and Margaret Thoroughgood,
Norfolk, Va. They had a son, John Thoroughgood Jameson. John Thoroughgood was descended
from Adam Thoroughgood (settled in Virginia about 1621), brother of Sir Robert Thoroughgood.
(See chart in Virginia Historical Magazine, V., 88.)
Jacob Ellegood was in 1740 one of the justices for Princess Anne county, and Jacob
Ellegood, probably his son, was justice in 1775.

Jameson Family

William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine, Vol. 8, No. 4.
(Apr., 1900), pp. 251-255.


(Continued from Vol. III., 199, and V., 90).

It is now time to conclude the article on this family begun some time back. It has been
seen that the first of the name from whom a connected record is preserved was James Jameson,

Pg 252.

Essex county, Va., who died in 1736. His wife was Margaret, and he had issue three sons:
1 Thomas, 2 James, 3 David. Each of these have received some notice.

Now, while it is not the intention to trace all the lines, some information may be added
for the benefit of some future genealogist. John Jameson (p. 200, Vol. III.), the son of
1 Thomas, was a lieutenant colonel in the Revolution, and married twice. (1) Rachel Bessim,
of New York, by whom he had two children, who died in infancy. He married (2) Elizabeth
Davenport, daughter of Col. Burkett Davenport, by whom he had Mr. Jameson, father of Philip
L. Jameson, living in Culpeper county, Va., in 1893. It has been seen that Hon. David
Jameson, the third son of James Jameson, left one-half of his property to the above Col. John
Jameson, of Culpeper (son of his brother Thomas), member of the House of Delegates from
Culpeper in 1787, and a major on the State line in 1778, and to David Jameson, Jr., of
Caroline, son of his brother James.

Thomas Jameson, Jr. (son of James Jameson, second son of James Jameson), was born July 17,
1745, and died in January, 1770. He married Mary Robinson (baptized Feb. 5, 1748-'9; died
1771), daughter of Rev. Thomas Robinson*, master of the Grammar School in William and Mary
College, by Edith Tyler (aunt of Gov. John Tyler) his wife. They had issue (1) Dorothea
Graham (Dolly), (2) Thomas Robinson. Of these Dolly
*Thomas Robinson was probably the Thomas Robinson, son of John of Stuble Hall, Lancashire,
pub., who matriculated at Queen's College, Oxford, June 30, 1738, age twenty. He qualified
as master of the Grammar School at William and Mary College January 25, 1742, and died before
1765. He married Edith Tyler about 1755, and had issue (1) John, baptized October 30, 1746;
(2) Mary, baptized February 5, 1748-'9, who married Thomas Jameson, Jr., as above. Mrs.
Robinson's sister, Mary Tyler, married Rev. William Preston, professor of Moral Philosophy
at William and Mary. After Mr. Preston returned to England, Mrs. Edith (Tyler) Robinson
joined him there at Warcop, in Yorkshire, of which place he was rector. I have the fragment
of a letter from Mrs. Robinson addressed to Mr. Benjamin Powell, of Williamsburg. It mentions
her cousins John Tyler and his wife, "her dear Dolly and Molly." Says she does not see
a person once in twenty years going to Virginia; that it would cost six shillings to have

a stamp on a power of attorney sent over, etc. The present rector of Warcop is the Rev.
Charles Mayes Preston, a descendant of Mary Tyler, of Virginia. (See QUARTERLY, II., 126,
III., 139).

Graham Jameson was born in Yorktown July 27, 1768, and died April 18, 1848, in Danville, Ky.
She married Samuel Ayres (born 1766 in Essex county, and died Sept. 6, 1824). They were
married on Oct. 3, 1792, and moved to Lexington, Ky., where they lived till May, 1823, and
then moved to Danville, Ky. Issue of Samuel Ayres and Dolly Graham his wife: (1) Rebecca,
born Nov. 10, 1793, died July 18, 1794-'5; (2) David Jameson, born January 20, 1795, married
(i.) his cousin Maria Garnett, (ii.) Elizabeth Adams, of Boston, Mass; (3) Mahala, born
Sept. 22, 1796; (4) Martha Thorp, born May 14, 1799; (5) Mary, born December 14, 1801, died

1803; (6) Millinda, born December 17, 1803, married Dr. Edward Hollingsworth, of Virginia;
(7) Thomas Robinson Jameson, born Nov. 28, 1805, married Miss Smith, a Northern lady, and
have David Jameson Ayares, of Keokuk, Iowa, and Etta Ayres; (8) William Burton, born 12
January, 1808, died 1808; (9) Samuel Ayres, Jr., born 10 June, 1809, father of William Ayres,
of Louisville, Ky., and other children; (10) Dolly Aphia Jameson Ayres, born Aug. 12, 1811,
married Dr. John Hollingsworth, of Virginia, a cousin of Dr. Edward Hollingsworth. Their
two children are Mrs. Martha A. Bown, of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., and Mrs. Yeiser.

The following names of Thomas Robinson Jameson's children appear in Orange county, Va.,
records: 1 Caty, 2 Dolly, 3 Mahala, 4 Sukey.

I owe much of this information to Mr. James M. Bourne, of Owenton, Owen county, Ky., who
compiled it from family Bibles and county records. He is a great-grandson of Thomas Jameson
and Judith Ball Hackley. Mr. Jameson emigrated from Culpeper county, Va., to what is now
Montgomery county, Ky., in 1782, and died Aug. 14, 1827, aged eighty-four years.

Under date of March 5, 1892, Mr. David J. Ayres, of Keokuk, Iowa, writes:

"I have an Episcopal prayer-book, given me years ago by my uncle David Jameson Ayers, and
in this book is written he name "Mary Jameson, 1768." The book was published in Oxford,
England, in 1767. We also have a book in our family in which is written as follows: "Maria
Garnett, Liberty Hall, Essex county, Va. Presented to Maria Garnett by her brother John J.
Garnett, 2d June, 1811." In another letter dated February 16, 1892, "You will see the
enclosed letter addressed to 'Mrs. Robinson.'" We send you an exact copy of that letter,
but there was no postmark on it. We have a family cross of hair and the name of

Page 254.

Thomas Robinson and Edith T. Robinson are together. Farther down is the name Mary Robinson
Jameson, lower down Mary Jameson Ayres. Books mentioned are as follows: "An help and guide
to Christian families", printed in London 1744. "Imprimatur", July 9, 1693. Another, "The
Knowledge and Practice of Christianity, printed in 1749". "Philotheus", or the Character of
a Reverend Learned and Pious Divine, London, 1764. In all of these is written Dolly Graham
Jameson, 1787.

There are several letters (1793) extant of David Jameson, Jr., of Caroline, speaking of
his uncle David Jameson's estate, of his intention to emigrate to Kentucky, of his daughter
Dolly Ayres, etc. To Mr. Samuel Ayres, then in Kentucky, he wrote, "Sally has sent out,
in the care of Garnett, some dried May cherries and a few damsons. Apphia has sent Dolly
flower seeds and roots, and I have sent a few scions of good fruit, and some shrubs, which be
sure to have set out as I may get from them when I come out. I shall conclude with desiring
you to give my love to my dear niece and be assured I am, dr. Samuel, your affectionate
friend, David Jameson, Jun."

The following letter to Mrs. Edith (Tyler) Robinson in Warcop, Yorkshire, who doubtless
never returned to America, deserves to be inserted entire:

Your kind and agreeable letter, dated May 23, 1786, I did not get until 27 April, 1787, the
receipt of it you may be assured gave me great satisfaction, though on reading it, was much
affected to hear you were in so low a state of health. I hope with the blessing of God
before this date you have received your health, and that this letter will find you enjoying
a perfect state of health. The truck and contents came safe to me, and without being
damaged, for which I do most sincerely return you many thanks. Be assured, my dear Grand-
mamma, I will take the greatest care imaginable of the clothes and other things you sent me
for your sake and my dear mamma's. You have put yourself to a great deal of trouble on my
account, and I am afraid the distance we are apart will prevent my ever having it in my
power to make you amends. I shall certainly wear the apron, ruffles and handkerchiefs with
as much pleasure for your sake as you worked them for mine.
The stays fit me very well as also the green silk gown by letting the sleeves out a little.
The piece of silk I do not think I shall ever part with, that particularly for your sake I
shall keep. I will not part with any of the trinkets that were in the cabinet on any account
whatever. I have delivered to my brother the things you sent him, except the teaspoons, and
them I will deliver when he wants them. I have the locket you sent me some years ago with
some of my dear papa's and mamma's

Page 255.

hair in it, which I intend to keep as long as I live. The stone ring you sent me I do prize

above all things, and shall forever keep it as a memorial of you and my dear papa and mamma.
I hope, my dear madam, you will not think me so ungrateful as not to thank you for an empty
purse; be assured I am not of that disposition, nor would not be for the world. I am very
much obliged to you for the books; they are very agreeable companions to me, as I am fond of
reading, and shall obey your last commands to read them with the greatest attention.
You accuse me in not writing to you, which I do confess was a neglect in me, though not
for want of affection, but for the want of not knowing in what manner I could possibly get a
letter to you, now knowing where to direct one.
My dear grand mamma, I must now conclude with informing you I enjoy a perfect state of
health, and may God Almighty give you grace w While I live you shall not want the prayers of
your sincere, affectionate and dutiful granddaughter. DOLLY GRAHAM JAMESON.

The original, of which the above is a copy, is in the hands of David Jameson Ayres, 509
and 511 Main Street, Keokuk, Iowa.

The back of the letter was addressed to "Mrs. Robinson", only.

[Mr. Ayres is a grandson of the writer. Mr. D. J. Ayres is a Democratic delegate to the
Chicago convention, and would be glad to hear from you. Mrs. Brown also would be glad to
hear from you".
Very truly yours, JAMES M. BOURNE.]
