Jemison Family of Wingina, Nelson, Virginia
(African American line)

This is just an introduction to the Jemison family connection. We'll lead in, from the "Diggs" family line.

Shown in the "Diggs" family section, we see that the grand daughter of Sukey Diggs, was Paulina, who married George Jamieson. (See "Diggs" family line).

This surname of Jamieson, is also spelled as Jemison, Jimmerson, and Jimmison, which made it pretty difficult to track down the relatives in this family line. George was born about 1827.

The "Nunery" surname is also spelled as Nunnally, Nunerry, Nunley, and Nunry. This family line orginated in James River, Curdsville, Buckingham, VA, then migrated to Tye River, Nelson, VA, and finally settled in Norwood, Nelson, VA - This family line attaches to the Wyatt, Brown, Washington, families of Nelson County.
The Nunery line were also slaves of "Cabell" family. The descendants continued to have connections to, and work for the Cabell's for many succeeding generations. Worked for William Daniel Cabell, hauling wood and cutting timber. William Daniel Cabell and Robert Lawrence Brown's store was named "Brown and Cabell" located in Norwood, near Variety Mills, and Montezuma.
