Biographical history

Sophia Jamieson was born about 1835 to Jane Whiteford and Patrick Jamieson in Ireland. By 1851 Sophia had emigrated to Canada with her parents and four siblings – Mary, Alexander, Bridget, and John. The family lived in Biddulph, Huron County, Ontario.

In the late 1850’s, Sophia married James Magee. James was a farmer and they lived in Blyth, Huron County, Ontario. Between 1860 and 1881, they had 12 children – Jane (Jenny), William (Bill), Mary, James, Jessica, Hannah (Hazel), Nelson, Elizabeth, Charles, Henrietta, Frederick and a daughter that died in infancy.

Following her husband’s death in 1893, Sophia moved west to Alberta with some of her children. The family initially settled in the Strathcona area. Eventually she lived with her son Nelson and his family, in the area then known as Rabbit Hill Settlement (now south Edmonton).

Sophia James Magee died 31 Jul 1898 in Rabbit Hill Settlement.
