Thomas JAMISON, b. 1766 VA;d. 1857 Robertson Co. TN
Interested in any information about Thomas JAMISON, b. c1766 (according to 1850 Robertson Co. TN Census)in Virginia; d. 1857, Robertson Co.,TN. According to his will, (recorded in Robertson Co. TN in 1853 and probated April 1857) his children were William JAMISON, Sarah (JAMISON)CLINARD, Ellen JAMISON (no married name listed), Catherine JAMISON (no married name listed), Rebecca (JAMISON)CLINARD, Jenny (JAMISON)MOORE, and Nancy JAMISON.
According to records, Thomas seems to have migrated from Virginia to Smith Co., TN and then to Robertson Co., TN.
In 1801,while a resident of Smith Co., TN,he bought land in Robertson Co.,TN but still appeared in the 1820 Smith Co. TN Census.The 1830 Robertson Co., TN Census showed him as a head of household as did the 1840 Robertson Co. TN Census.In 1850, he was listed as follows:
1850 Robertson Co. TN Census, Dist. 13
This Nancy must be the daughter mentioned in the will of Thomas JAMISON.
1850 Robertson Co. TN shows William, son of Thomas, also in District 13 as follows:
Martha CHAUDOIN (hard to read) 34TN
From an online site, I found that William JAMISON, Randal FELTS, and N. M. FELTS were buried at Battle Creek Church Cemetery in Robertson Co. TN.
I believe it`s possible that the daughter of Thomas JAMISON, Sarah JAMISON CLINARD, may be my ggg grandmother,b.c1797 VA and wife of my ggg grandfather, Joseph CLINARD -- residents of Robertson Co., TN. Sarah died between 1860 and 1870 and Joseph died after 1880.
I`d appreciate any information about Thomas JAMISON, his ancestors or descendants. Thanks very much.
