    Clark B. Jamison. The name of Clark B. Jamison, of Piqua, is written in ineradicable characters on the roll of heroes who gave up their lives in behalf of their fellowman during the great flood of 1913. In so doing he measured fully up to the standard which is the greatest possible in human life. The circumstances of his heroic sacrifice are set forth in the history of the Piqua flood, elsewhere in this work. Clark Jamison was born at Cadiz, Ohio, August 30, 1864, a son of John C. and Eleanor Jamison. The father served two terms as state senator. He was educated in the public schools and after his graduation there from high school entered Franklin College, later attending law school at Cincinnati. In order to assist in paying for his legal tuition, Mr. Jamison taught school at odd times, but after securing his admission to the bar he applied himself wholeheartedly to the practice of his calling, in which he made rapid and consistent strides. He was a constant student and an exceptionally well-read man, as well as one who made and retained many friendships. Mr. Jamison's uncle, John Clark, was a United Presbyterian minister, and rose to the rank of colonel in the Union Army. In 1892 Mr. Jamison married Bertha E., daughter of B. and Jennie (Hayes) Wilkinson, and to this union there have been born three children: Charles B., Bertha Jeanetta and Eleanor. Charles B. Jamison was attending the University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, when he accepted an offer to go to Panama, leaving Piqua, August 10, 1916. Later he went to Chile, South America, with the Guggenheim mining interests and there he is located at the present time. The late Clark B. Jamison was a man of numerous important connections, and had many friends in Masonic circles, he being a member of that order for years. His widow was greatly interested in the work of the Red Cross Society during the great World war, and also lent her aid and means in the furtherance of other war activities.
