Summary
John M. Williamson (1787-1878) of Stony Brook, Long Island, was a prominent lawyer, politician and militia officer. He served notably as a New York State Assemblyman for Suffolk County, Supervisor of the Town of Brookhaven, and judge of the County's Court of Sessions. John M. Williamson letters and documents, 1813-1835, consist chiefly of letters addressed to him by friends, family members and militia personnel while at Sag Harbor garrison during the War of 1812, and at his residence in Stony Brook. There are also a few letters from others addressed to his father Jedidiah Williamson and to William S. Williamson, as well as receipts, military orders and other items relating to militia duties, some carried out by William S. Williamson. Correspondents include his father; his brother Seth Williamson at Scotchtown, New York; his cousin Elnathan Hawkins, a mariner; and John R. Satterly, a militia officer and friend. A letter from Williamson to his father, dated 1822 at Albany, concerns state political affairs.
