The Jamison Family

"James Jamison, the son of Alexander Jamison, was born in 1650 in Glasgow, Scotland. He emigrated to Galway, Ireland and came to
America with his two sons, Robert and John, in 1700. They settled near York, Pennsylvania.
John was born in 1680. There is no information available on Robert.
Thomas Jamison, son of John, was born November 7, 1732. He was a farmer and served in the Militia under General Washington. He
fought through the campaign of July 5, 1755 which resulted in Braddock's defeat. He settled in Georgia after marrying Jane Dickey in
1756. She died in 1763. He later moved with his four children to Virginia, living near Charlottesville at a place called Jamison's Mountain.
He also lived on Pigg River in Franklin County. He died April 6, 1830."

I also have this from:

My son descends from his daughter Martha, who married Lewis Marshall. Here is some info on that family You will notice that Martha
Jamison Marshall has a birth date of 1767 on her tombstone, but she was supposed to have been the daughter of Jane Dickey Jamison,
who died in 1763:
