Sophia Jamieson and James Magee lived in Blythe, Huron County, Ontario. They had 12 children between 1860 and 1881 – Jane, William, Mary, James, Jessica, Hannah, Nelson, Elizabeth, Charles, Henrietta, Frederick and a daughter that died in infancy.

Following the death of patriarch James Magee in 1893, Sophia and some of her children moved west to Alberta. Over the next few years, more of the adult children moved from Ontario to Alberta. By 1898 all but three of Sophia’s children had moved to Alberta. James, Elizabeth, and Charles remained in Ontario.

In Alberta, William, Nelson, and Frederick all took homesteads. Mary, Jessica, and Henrietta all married. Jane remained single and was a dressmaker. Hannah also remained single and was a school teacher.
