Notes:

The Jamisons were probably all related in some respect to each other in County Antrim, Ireland. There is circumstantial evidence that Marmaduke Jamison, see "Foreign Branches-Ireland" was a great-nephew of Francis Jamison. Mr. Jamison emigrated about 1764 to Philadelphia settling in eastern Pennsylvania before removing in 1766 to Franklin co., PA. A document exists[3] which states that "Francis Jamison, his wife, and family of four sons and three daughters had lived in the bounds of that Congregation from their infancy and that this would admit them to church privileges in any Christian society where it might please providence to call their lot. Signed, Buckina, this 17th day of July 1764 by me

John Logan, Moderator"

One source indicates that Francis Jamison and family resided for a time in Maryland, but this should not be confused with the Francis Jamison (see Index #20400) who emigrated to Maryland settling in Frederick county, MD in 1769 with his two sons, John W. and William Jamison. These folks removed first to Cumberland co., PA. and then went on to Indiana co., PA. the county north of Westmoreland, while our subject settled in Westmoreland county dying in Pleasant Unity. Mr. Jamison(5 d) along with his children Francis Jr.(single, 6 d), John(1 s, 6 d), Marmaduke(single, renter, 3 s), and Robert(3 s, 1 d) were listed in 1798 taxes for Unity.
