They gave a deed conveying fifty acres of land to Thomas Short, which was admitted to record May 17, 1720. Margaret Jameson freely relinquishing her right of dower in said land the same day.

Mrs. Jameson probably died before her husband, as no mention is made of her in his will, which was dated April 19, 1736, proved Nov. 17, 1736 and reads as follows:

" IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN. I. James Jameson, being sick and weak. but of sound and perfect memory, do make, constitute and ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner following:

    Mr. Jameson is mentioned in Thomas Walker's journal of 1750 as "Capt  Jemy­son near Panther Gap." This place is in Rockbridge Co., Va.
    Mr. Jameson, in 1737, gave bonds as guardian of his youngest brother, David Jameson.  Capt. Jameson must have died between Thursday. Nov. 26. 1767, on which day he witnessed some transaction on record, and the following July 28, 1768. when his son Thomas Jameson was granted letters of administration on his father's estate. The estate was appraised Sept. 24, 1772 by William Pannell, Wm. Bronaugh, and Uriel Mallory.
    Capt. Jameson, it appears, must have been a resident, for a time, of Orange Co.. Va. Little is known of him beyond his military standing as a captain, socially is styled "gentleman," and held the office of a justice of the peace. May 26, 1757, the commissioners who appraised the estate of Jeremiah Morton were sworn by Capt. Jameson, gentleman."

"Mr. Meriwether was of English or Welsh descent. He was a student in William and Mary College.  He then studied medicine, intending to complete his medical education in Edinboro, but the war between England and France prevented.  He removed about 1785 to Georgia, where he was greatly esteemed by reason of his life of benevolence and usefulness. While not professionally a practising physician, he did a great deal for the sick, giving his money freely for medicines, and devoting his time in attendance upon the suffering without charge."

"Frank and his family migrated with the Gilmer, Mathews, and other families to the Broad River area in what is now Oglethorpe county, Georgia in 1784. Their home was on the west side of Millstone Creek and their well marked graves still exist. Although he attended medical school, war between England and France interrupted his study and he never completed his degree; he would therefore never take pay for his services as a physician."
