Jemison, William, 1778 - 1829

Description

The gravestone in memory of William Jemison is located in the Jemison Cemetery in Northport.

It reads:

In memory of William Jemison, erected by his children for whom rather than for himself he lived. His mental and moral qualities were strongly exhibited in every act of his life. He was emphatically what he seemed to be. An easy and clear perception of moral truth united with strong passions made him the ardent friend of Honesty, Truth, and Sincerity and the equally ardent enemy of Pride and Hypocrisy in friendship, politicks or religion. To the operations of a superior intellect and the decisions of a clear and comprehensive judgement, he was under Providence, chiefly indebted for his great success in the business of life. Born 1st July, 1778. Died 2nd June 1829, aged 50 years, 11 months and 1 day.

William Jemison was born to Robert and Margaret (Kirkham) Jemison in Georgia. He married Sarah (Mims) Jemison. They had 8 children.
