Went thru my James & Jemima files and found little attesting Jemima was a Quigley (but am posative she was).
There is a large collection of books titled Compendium (of something or other). That us where I first bumped into the Jemima Quigley. Abigail Singleton Donham) Sampson had her lineage there. There it lists James South married Jemima Quigley, dau of Isaac Quigley (Amer Rev). I think someone told me that is an error and Isaac was a brother to Jemima. Also this record lists James South' mother as Amy and not Keziah.
This record has been published again "Family Tree Maker, Vol III. Lineage Records = Broderbund Software, Inc, Banner Blue Division, 26 April 1998". As you know anyone can send in anything and it will be printed...right or wrong.
Also Benjamin South, son of James & Jemima, was in Attleboro (now Langhorne), Bucks Co,PA selling Quigley lands as agent for his father & mother. This Benj. married Rebecca Palmer and was back in Clermont Co by 1820 where he died.
Her are a couple of 'goodies' from Brown, Clermont & Highland Cos Newspaper Extracts (DAR Library, DC).
1841 - DIED on Monday evening the 25th int. near Bethel, Mrs. Jemima South, consort of Mr. James South, in her 78th year of age. Mrs S was for a great many years a worthy member of the Baptist church. She, together with her husband, settled in Tate township upwards of 40 yers ago. Mother South has no doubt gone to reap the rewards of her labors-to the bright mansion of fairer worlds on hih, "where sickness, sorrow, pain and death, are felt and feared no more".
1843 (no month given but next entry is 9 Sept so suppose he died in August). Near Bethel, on the 26th ult, Mr. James South, in the 81st year of his age. Mr. South ws among the first settlers i the county, and upwards of 40 years a resident of Tate township.
Will let you know if I can find anything more about the Quigleys.
