Jamison, D. Stearns, was born in Canisteo, May 9, 1860. Daniel Jamison, his father, was also born in Canisteo, on the farm where they now live. He is a descendant of the family of Jamisons who are so widely known in that town, and who were early settlers. He married Rosina, daughter of Benjamin Towner, a Baptist minister, by whom he had six children, Hugh, D. Stearns, Carrie, Mitchell, Anna, and Benjamin. Hugh and Benjamin are in the gold and silver mines in the West. D. Stearns was educated in the district schools of Canisteo, and married Mary, daughter of J. C. Stephens, one of the first families of the town, whose history dates back to the days when the Indians were in possession, and by whom he had two children, Carrie and Marion. Mr. Jamison was elected in 1894 as collector of the town, which office he now holds.
