(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.
Sawney Jr.'s daughter Margaret Eliza Jemison, born 1867, married Willis Nunery, born 1853.
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.
Sawney Jemison Jr.'s second daughter Anna Jemison, born 1879, married Robert Franklin Rose in 1918. Robert's first child was John Clarence Rose, born 1898. John Clarence, was the son of Cynthia Banks, who married Charles Crockett. Charles' brother Henry Crockett, and Henry's wife Mary "Jane" Rose, were among the founders of "St. John Baptist Church" in Norwood, Nelson, VA.
Sawney Jr.'s 3rd daughter Charlotte Jemison, born 1862, married Benjamin "Inn" Jordan. Their
daughter Charlotte Isabella Jordan, married Charles Henry Bolden, brother of Easter Bolden, who married
my grand uncle James Nicholas. Charlotte Isabella's second husband was Stuart Horsley.
Stuart Horsley's 3rd wife was Lucy Glenda Bailey.
Stuart's first wife was Leanna B. Morse, born 1907 (See "Morse" family line).
