History - John Read Clark Jamison was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of Alexander and Hannah Tucker Read Jamison. As a small boy, he sailed with his mother and other relatives to California with the Samuel Bran­non Company on the ship, Brooklyn. They spent some time in San Francisco, were at Sutter's Fort during the gold rush and came to Salt Lake Valley in 1849.

On September 9, 1849, his mother married James Graham, and the family moved to Weber County. They moved to Millville a few years later.
