Looking for any information on Benedict Jameson of Calloway Co., KY, and Stewart Co., TN. I believe him to be the brother of Aloysius Q. Jameson of Calloway Co., KY. Both received grants in the Jackson Purchase area and they were very close in proximity. He appears in Stewart Co. in the 1820 census and was back and forth between the counties. Aloysius married in Franklin Co. KY to Martha Pullam reportedly in 1924. They are there in 1830. There is a Henry Jameson in Fayette County in 1810 and in Franklin Co. in 1820 (the counties multiplied, and he was probably in the same spot). This could be the father. He is probably from the Maryland Jamesons who were Catholic and used many Catholic names.
