Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am fascinated with genealogy and have 39,000 plus people in my My Heritage gedcom. Findagrave.com has been a great place to find information and images to not just add data but to feel closer to my ancestors. I had often wanted to add flowers or contribute information so I joined the site. It has been a joy to add sites and manage sites of ancestors to share their lives with others who are seeking as I was. Thank you to all memorialists who tend to our relatives and ancestors.

John Jamison
I am not in any way related to the Jamison. I just take tombstone pictures and put the memorials on line. The info of birth place and death was sent via edits by some one.
All the connection were also made by someone via the edit tab

RE: Francis Jamison Jr (reply)
Barbara,

I assume you are refering to the memorial I posted for Francis Jamison, Sr. b. 1721 d. 1792 buried at the Middle Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland Co., PA?

I was NOT aware that Francis Sr. and wife Margaret (who very curiously died the very same day) had a son named Francis Jamison, Jr. I am not a Jamison descendant but rather related by marriage many times over, as one of Francis's descendants had 10 sons and the town of Greensburg, PA, that I grew up in - now has scores of Jamisons because of that.

I got the information about Francis Jamison being buried in this cemetery from my godfather, a David Jamison of Greensburg (now deceased). He and I both looked for the man's stone (and that of his wife) but fear that they are no longer extant (as with many others in this old cememtery). Son Robert Jamison is buried there.

Please do send me any information you have about son Francis Jamison, Jr. I would be happy to include it in his father's biography. I would also be happy to transfer this memorial over to you if you like and if you show me definitively that Francis Jr. connects to his father. I am not aware of anything else about Francis Jr. his spouse or Ohio descendants so I can't help you much with any DAR application.

None of the Greensburg Jamisons (and there are many) other than David seems to be much interested in genealogy, so I have endeavored to be the keeper of the flame for that family in our town (my first cousins are also Jamison descendants of Francis, but I have many other second cousins and many third ones, aunts and uncles who are descendants as well).

I hope you noted that I linked son Marmaduke (love the name) to his father - he never married. He is buried in Lawrence County, PA.

I live in Florida but am currently staying at our summer cottage near Mt. Pleasant for the next few days. I took lots of photos at the Middle Presbyterian cemetery the other day, but if you have other families from there you want me to look for I would be happy to.

Kind rgds,

Arthur Humphrey

RE: DANIEL BURT
Hello Cousin!
My line and yours go back to Daniel Burt and his daughter Martha who married Daniel Whitney. Then my line takes off in a different branch. One of Their daughers was Huldah Whitney who married a Bailey and they had a daughter Ester Bailey who married Charles Mott. They had a daughter Matilda Mott ( my great great great grandmother) who married Issac Bailey Allman and they had a daughter named Matilda Allman who married John C. Bogert (who was killed in the civil war) and they had a son George Bogert who had a son Wilbur Bogert who had a daughter Rita Bogert who was my mother.
Recently I have been doing quite a bit of work on our mutual line, that is Daniel Burt and beyond.
His mother was Sarah Foote Belden whos mother was Elizabeth Foote (Belden) who was killed in the Deerfield MASS (Indian) Massacre in 1696. Actually Daniels mother Sarah barely escaped by hiding but the fate of her brothers and sisters and mother was not as lucky. Most of the children were killed with their mother. A son Samuel was struck in the head with a hatchet but lived. You can read about the massacre on line. This line is a very old American Colonial family. In Deerfield Mass there is a monument to all those that were slain there.And a mass grave. We should be so proud to be decendant from them. If you are on ancestory.com my tree is open to the public and you will find all my documentation there.
I hope you enjoyed reading this although a sad story.
Be well,
your cousin Joyce

RE: Sarah Batman Watkins DAR information
The DAR records that I used here for Johnson County, MO are the listings that the DAR organization done a complete physical inventory of every grave here in the county in 1947. There have been a few subsequent inventories done by different volunteer groups. I'm not even sure the DAR is still an active group or not. I somewhat doubt it.

DANIEL BURT
Hello Cousin!
I just visited the house Daniel Burt built for his son in Warwick NY. It is under restoration now but it is still standing! Ever see it?

RE: Henry Batman
Hi Barb,
Elmer Boman is the gentleman whose name I was trying to remember. He is the one, along with his wife, I believe, who came to see my dad and me many years ago. They had a huge circular genealogy chart which we spread on the floor and spent quite some time poring over.
I do recall that he had researched the location of Henry's grave and had decided it was most likely in the Hoke Burying ground. I don't recall his reasoning exactly, but I seem to recall that it was based on where Henry had lived when he died coupled with the proximity of the site.
I will attempt to collate all my Batman information into a more orderly format, and will be happy to make copies of anything you might want. Fortunately, I do have a fairly complete Batman family file on FTM.
I am happy we have made this connection and look forward to working with you.
Best wishes,
Larry Dean

Henry Batman
Hello Barbara,
Thank you for this information.
If there are just a few field stones in the cemetery and if it is in an out of the way, inaccessible, and scarcely visited location, perhaps we should have Henry's military headstone placed in a more prominent cemetery where people might see it.
I have another ancestor, who fought in the Revolutionary War, Capt. John Redstone Harding, who has a beautiful cenotaph in a cemetery in a county adjacent to the county where he died and was buried. The man who bought the ground where the family cemetery was located, decided that he would use the headstones for rock, and proceed to break all of them up and even plowed over the ground and used it for a pig pen. It seems he had a real problem with the religion of the folks buried in the family cemetery, and there may have been some unresolved financial arrangements.
But Capt. Harding's grandson, had a beautiful monument erected to his grandfather in a large, active cemetery.
I haven't received any answers yet to my questions about the exact procedures for obtaining and placing a headstone.
I haven't found Henry's military papers among my files yet, but with what you have provided, and with some other notations regarding Henry in various accounts of the Battle of Tippecanoe that I have seen, there is no doubt regarding his military service and his entitlement to a military headstone.
I will keep you posted.
Best wishes,
Larry Dean
PS: Do you remember from whom you received the information regarding Henry's burial place?
