|Bettye Sue||RE: Jefferson Jimerson page|
Great hearing from a fellow desendant of Jimerson. My paternal grand father was John Parvin Jimerson, brother of my grand Uncle Lynn, we never called him Luther.
My information about Jeff is from three books I found at the Sutra Library near San Francisco when I lived in the Monterey area and documents I found at Fold3 and a few at ancestry.com. The name Jimerson was spelled various ways; however, all the children of Jeff's 3rd wife, my gr grand mother spelled it Jimerson. I list various spellings while researching and leave the spelling as found in the documents. While researcing I use various spellings and still have some difficulty such as I am unable to find my grand parents in the 1920 census although I know where they were living, not in Tennessee.
I only found the 1930 census while looking for my Aunt Ruby and Uncle Frank Martin's family. Fortunately, I remembered all their children and found their family divided at the bottom of the census page and turned the page to see the other children and the next entry was my grandparents.
Until recently none of us knew the year of Jeff's death and at ancestry I found Jeff's death in an application made by Uncle Charlie for Jeff's CSA gravestone. I and my youngest daughter visited the Henry Co - Calloway Co area in 2009 and I was able to find the cemetery where Jeff was buried. I recalled which side of Puryear and went down the main road and just instinctly turned down the correct road. At that time I never knew the name of the cemetery. When I and my young uncle grew up in the area none of the roads had names.
One of the books is available at the Rhea Library Archives room at Paris, TN. It lists Jeff as being captured at Island 10 after being one of the soldiers left to guard the Island while the bulk of the CSA regiment escaped. The various means of escape and the following of Jeff's company was in the other books and documents at Fold3. Jeff is listed as "deserting" after his initial enlistment was up. Many soldiers were listed as deserters and later found to have been captured or just left to return home to plant the crops and later returned.
I believe that Jeff's surname was Jamieson and spelled various manners according to the writter - the person spelled as it was pronounced. If you look at the gravestone his name is spelled Jimmerson which was the spelling when he enlisted in the CSA at Paris (seat of Henry Co TN).
I am old enough to remember visiting with all of Mary and Jeff's children except Maude who died before I was born.
Other information I gathered through my memories and those of my young uncle who is 6 months younger than I. I spent all my summers from age 2 through 16 with my Jimerson grand parents to get away from Polio which broke out in cities. It was a dangerous and sad time.
If you leave me your email I will give you more information.
