Classification: Query
Surnames: Jamieson, Colston, Redder
My name is Brad Jamieson and I am trying to trace my paternal grandfather’s family. We are of mixed African American heritage from New England and have been told by many family members that my paternal grandfather, Alvah Samuel Jamieson, had roots back to Scotland. I have been able to trace his roots to Theresa Colston born ca 1791 and hit the proverbial wall.

In addition to New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut I have traced roots back to Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia.

Here’s what I have so far:

Alvah Samuel Jamieson, DOB 10/01/1879 in Corning New York, DOD 04/28/1960 in Springfield, Massachusetts

Parents and Siblings

Father = Joseph C. Jamieson, DOB 1845 – 1849 in Virginia/Washington, DC, DOD Unknown
Mother = Sophia Elizabeth Redder, DOB May 1849 in Bath on Hudson, NY, DOD Unknown
Sister = Sophia Elizabeth Jamieson DOB 02/12/1884 in Massachusetts, DOD Unknown
Sister = Ethel Mary Jamieson DOB 07/08/1872, DOD 04/29/1959
Adopted brother = Goddan Jamieson DOB 1895, DOD Unknown


Grandfather = Elias Jamieson, DOB Bet. 1805–1815,
Grandmother = M. Elizabeth 9Colston) Jamieson, DOB Bet. 1821–1824 in Washington, DC, DOD Unknown

Their Children

Son = Joseph C. Jamieson, DOB 1845 – 1849 in Virginia/Washington, DC, DOD Unknown Daughter = Levinia Jamieson, DOB 1848, DOD Unknown
Daughter = Octavia Jamieson, DOB 1851, DOD Unknown

Any help anyone could give would be much appreciated.
