Mr. Jameson, as stated by his son. Dr. Horatio Gates Jameson, in a written sketch of his father's life, was a graduate from the medical department of the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He practised his profession in York, and as late as 1796, in Shippensburg, which is the oldest settlement in Cumberland Co.. Pa. He was an officer in the Provincial forces of Pennsylvania, between May, 1757, and 1760, holding commissions of captain, brigade major, and lieutenant-colonel, serving in the Colonial wars against the French and Indians. He was commissioned also as colonel in the militia of Pennsylvania, in the war of the Revolution, and it is said served under Washington in the battles of Princeton and Monmouth, a part -of the time acting as a surgeon in the army. These various military commissions, much worn and obliterated by time, are in the possession of Gen. Horatio Gates Gibson, of the U. S. army, now of Washington, O. C., a great-grandson of Col. David Jameson, M. D. Under date of Dec. 31, 1776, the committee of York Co. wrote to the Committee of Safety in Philadelphia, Pa., as follows:—
' In these times of Difficulty several gentlemen have exerted themselves much in the Grand Cause "*».< xhe gentlemen who deserve the most from the publick are David Jameson, Hugh Denwoody, Charles Lukeits and Mr. George Eichelbtrger. They have been exceedingly useful."
Dr. Jameson came from Scotland in company with a friend, also a young surgeon,* Dr. Hugh Mercer, afterward the distinguished General Mercer of the Continental army, who fell at Princeton. As showing the sen-ice rendered and the esteem in which Dr. Jameson was held, there are many papers referring to him in the Colonial Archives -of Pennsylvania, e. g., a letter from Horace Hamilton to Capt. Potter, dated, ' Fort Littleton, April 4, 1756 .... we have sent an express to Fort Shirley for Dr. Mercer, supposing Dr. Jamieson is killed or mortally wounded in the expedition, he being not returned—" "Capt. Jameson is a gentleman of education, does his duty well and is an exceedingly good officer." Col. David Jameson had commanded at Fort Hunter, Fort Augusta, Fort Aughwich, and was at the battle of Loyal Hanna, March 14, 1769."
Col. Jameson held by executive appointment various civic offices in the county of York, Pa. He was appointed justice of the peace, Oct., 1764, and June, 1777, and had a special commission to try certain offenders, etc.
There is an accredited family tradition that Dr. Jameson, the young man from Scotland, in 1740, was a descendant of the "Campbell Clan" and a nephew of the Duke of Argyle, a sister's son.
Mrs. Jameson was the eldest daughter of Thomas Davis of York, Pa. She had two sisters and one brother. After Dr. Jameson's death Mrs. Jameson married * Col. George Irwin, a merchant of York, Pa., where they resided. Col. Irwin was one of the deputies from York to the Provincial Convention in Philadelphia, Jan. 23-28, 1776. He was the owner of the property on the southwest corner of Main and Beaver streets, known as Irwin's Comer, and opposite the National Hotel, York, Pa. He was a man of considerable wealth. His will was probated April i, 1812. Mrs. Irwin, according to records, prior to May 3. 1803, removed with her family to Frank- linton, now Columbus, Ohio. She married April 19, 1815, *Col. Robert Culbertson, a gentleman of wealth and distinction, who had removed, previous to Sept. 25, 1807, from Franklin Co., Pa., to Franklin Co., Ohio, and purchased lands situated on both sides of the Scioto river. He was an elder and prominent member of the First Presbyterian church of Columbus (Franklinton), and signed the call Sept. 5, 1807, to Rev. Dr. Hoge, of Richmond, Va., to become its pastor. At one time the Jameson and Culbertson families constituted about half the congregation. It is now one of the most wealthy and influential churches in the city of Columbus.
Col. Culbertson's will was offered for probate March 14, 1820. He had children by a previous marriage. Mrs. Culbertson survived her husband two or three years.

He was the founder and president of the Washington Medical College of that city, and the first president of the Ohio Medical College in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. Jameson was very celebrated for his surgical knowledge and skill.

He wrote several medical books which were accepted as authority by the profession. Dr. Jameson spent some time with his family in Europe, and his distinguished learning and ability were recognized in the medical and surgical circles of the continent.

D., which has been printed but not published by his grandson, Gen. Horatio Gates Jameson Gibson, U. S. A., to which is added an interesting appendix of genealogy and memoranda.
