    On May 18, 1778, he was appointed an appraiser on the estate of Abner Harbour, deceased.
    On July 20, Fred Reeves, Tully Choice Jr., William Jameson, and Thomas Jamison viewed a road from Pigg River where Choices Rd. goes in the road leading from Gordons Quarter to the Courthouse.

    John Heard, Samuel Byrd, Thomas Jamison and Henry Harris or any 3, appointed to view a road from about a mile below Gorden's Quarters across Cole's Road.

    The 1810 and 1820 Henry Co. VA censuses do not have any Jamisons or varient spellings.

    After the death of Joshua Bohannon, Rhoda Cook Bohannon married (2) John Jamison (Jameson) on 16 October 1781 in Lincoln County, Virginia, which became Kentucky.26 Jamisons Knob and Cooks Knob are side-byside on the south bank of the Pigg River in Franklin County. Thomas, John and William Jamison are shown as early settlers with land in the southeastern part of Franklin County near the Henry County line.27 In 1806 John Jamison, then residing in Tennessee, issued a power of attorney to Abraham Bohannon of Shelby County, Kentucky, which substantiates the probable relationship of Abraham Bohannon and Rhoda Cook Bohannon Jamison.28
