I have been entering notes from my research at Shared Tree. There are many more records in my notes not obviously relevant to my family tree than I do family tree records.

Attention Beverly Simpson,
Re the Jemison family of Tyrone, Ireland may I suggest the you look at possible variations of this surname as well.
For example within in my One Name Study I have the following;
John Jameson born about 1825 Married Anne Grimason 3 Dec 1846 at Mullavilly, Armagh, Ireland.

Mary Jane Jameson born about 1838 at Drumnakelly, Armagh, Ireland Married Henry Grimason 7 Jan 1853 at Kilmore, Armagh, Ireland.

Dorthea Jamieson born 13 Jun 1920 USA, Married Samuel John Grimason about 1940, died 27 Dec 1977 at Haworth, New Jersey, USA

Margaret Jamieson living Married William John Grimason of Belfast, Antrim Ireland.

The above shows what I mean by looking at variations of the surname.
Good luck in your quest.

The Irish Times Digital Archive Free Until December 14 2009
The Irish Times digital archive, which contains exact reproductions of all articles published by The Irish Times from 1859 onwards, is available free until December 14 2009.

"For much of Easter Week 1916, The Irish Times was the only newspaper on the streets, even though, because of censorship and the breakdown of communications systems, its ability to report on the fighting was extremely limited. Apart from the proclamation of martial law, it filled its pages with "special articles of literary interest and some items of local events." By Saturday May 2nd, however, it was able to carry a headline on "The Sinn Féin Rising: Scenes And Incidents In Dublin Streets" along with a great deal of vivid detail. On Saturday May 13th, the Weekly Irish Times was published as a special triple issue, with extensive details of the fighting, lists of casualties, the names of prisoners sentenced and deported and photographs of the main protagonists. It achieved a "colossal" circulation and became a standard reference work on the history of the Rising"

I am looking for any information on Samuel Jemison (b. 1780 d. 1871) of Cookstown, County, Tyrone, married to Sara McComb (b. 1787 d. 1849). They had a farm called Agenhtarhn Farm. They raised seven children: Samuel and William (twins), James, Eliza, Thomas, Joseph, and Sara. Samuel, James Thomas, William, and Sara all left Ireland and went to America 1830-1840). Eliza and Joseph stayed in County Tyrone and raised families there. This is as far back as I have been able to trace this part of my family. I would appreciate any suggestions on where I might do some more researching to get some more information.
