David Flavel Jamison
Birth: Dec. 14, 1810
Orangeburg County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 14, 1864
Charleston County

Lawyer, jurist, author, and planter, Jamison represented Barnwell District in the S.C. House of Representatives from 1836 - 1848. He was a member of Orangeburg Presbyterian Church. In December 1860 Jamison was chosen president of South Carolina's Secession Convention, and later served as S.C. secretary of war. He died of yellow fever. There is an unconfirmed story that just before Sherman's invasion, Jamison's daughter Caroline Jenkins had her father's body disinterred and temporarily hidden in order to avoid desecration by Yankee soldiers.
