Re: Esther Jamison - Jasper Co., MO
Esther Jameson/Jamison was my husband's ggg-grandmother.I just received a death certificate for one of her sons, Jasper Newton Jameson who died in CA in 1920 and it lists his parents as Robert Jameson and Esther Holcomb.I am copying Susan on this email because she is the authority on the Holcomb family.
The1850 census says she was born in TN but a Rootsweb tree has an Esther Holcomb born about 1796 in Simpson County KY on the TN border.The Holcombs have been traced far back but so far I am not sure if our Esther Holcomb Jameson is the same Esther Holcomb who was the daughter of Jonathan Holcomb and Elizabeth Lucas.A Book on the Holcombs called "The Holcombes, nation builders...their biographies, genealogies, and pedigrees"is on Heritagequest and it indicated that Esther daughter of Jonathan married William Sherry in 1810 in Warren County KY.It does not mean she did not remarry to Robert Jameson but we will have to dig a little deeper.My husband descends from Esther Jameson's daughter Fatima Charlotte who supposedly kept a diary of the family's journey from Missouri to California, which my mother in law said she had, but now with memory issues cannot recall.I hope to discover it somewhere.
I found this on Green William Sherry on Findagrave.This means that Esther Holcomb and William Sherry had at least one child.Will have to dig deeper to see who our Esther Holcomb Jameson is.
