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.
