RAMSEY, BURSON, GILLIS, JERNIGAN, BARGE, DIXON, COTTON, KNIGHT, WATSON, HAWTHORNE, HAWKINS, WARDLAW, PETTUS, PALMER, MALLORY, ODOM, BLACK, DOWLING, ADAMS, WARD, LINDSEY, BULLOCK, AND DUNN are names of these Irish, Scottish, and English descendants who came South to Alabama. Some of these lines can be traced through the high kings of Ireland in oral history to Mesopotamia, to William the Conqueror and his Viking origins, and to Charlemagne. Mysteries remain, such as: Was Vashti Vann who married Benjamin Jernigan a Cherokee Indian? Was Thomas Dixon, Halifax County, will 1812, married to Martha Green? Was his father Benjamin and who was his wife? I would love to find answers to these questions.
