I am looking for information regarding the Revolutionary War involvement of the Jameson/Jamison family in Essex and Bucks Co., VA.
I have the following names as being involved in the Revolutionary War; Thomas Jameson, born 1743 in (York Co.?) PA. He was supposed to have furnished money and arms for the Militia. George Jameson born 1744 in Agusta Co., VA. John Jameson born 1763 who served in the Agusta Co. Militia. David Jameson born in Orange Co. VA who was supposed to be an officer also.
I have some basic information a John Jameson who was a Lt. Col in the war. Land Office Warrant # 197 and Land Office Military Warrant #3174 dated 19 Nov, 1784. He was supposed to be a Cavalry officer from June 1776 to November 1783.
There is a statement from a Lt. Col. Edward Stevens of the Army Minute Service dated 18 day of addeer 1807. This tates that Lt. Col John Jameson served under him. (I'm not sure what month addeer refers to.)
I also have a referrence to David Jameson, birth year 1714 in York Co., PA; he died in Essex Co. VA. He was married to a Mildred Smith, died 11 December 1778. She was the daughter of Edmund and Agnes Smith and reputed to be a kinswoman of George Washington. David graduated from Prinston College in 1753. He was supposed to be Lt. Govenor of VA during part of the Revolution and on the VA Committee to help in the location of the District of Columbia.
Other than the copy of the documents for John Jameson I do not have any records except what my aunts accumulated from family bibles.
Is there any way that you might check these names and see if I am a decendent of American Revolutionary War members?
Also do you know how I might contact the Daughters of the Confederacy? I believe that my Great Great Grandfather was a Capt. in the 28th Regiment, Co. B, Texas Cavalry. His name is Wiliam Alner Jameson. I have copies of muster rolls from 22 April 1862 in Rusk, Texas to April 1865.
Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
