Re Clarke Co., IA data for early settlers: Robert Jamison is listed as an early resident of Clarke Co., Iowa. Robert was the younger brother of my ancestor, Agnes (Jamison) Scott, b. 1809, SC. Agnes grew up in Logan Co.,KY, and moved with her mother and siblings to Washington Co., IN after her father Robert Jamison, Sr., died in 1815/1816. In 1832, she married William Scott (b. 1809, KY), in Monroe Twp., Washington Co., Indiana. They had two daughters b. in Indiana: Mildred Jane Scott, and my gg-grandmother, Miranda Adeline Soctt. Agnes and William Scott were in Monroe Co., Iowa by 1844 when their 3rd daughter, Elizabeth A. Scott, was born. In 1846, their 4th daughter, Mary Ellen Scott was born in Monroe Co., Iowa.
