Mabel Elizabeth Jamieson
Date Posted
In February I wrote a short family history of my Great Aunt, Mabel Elizabeth Jamieson, who drowned in the Marquette disaster on 23 October 1915. A cousin, Lorna Wilson, and a teacher at St Andrews, Christchurch, had prepared an Ancestry search of the Jamieson and Wilson families in 1986. Sadly she died in a car accident shortly after. This note is to honour her and Great Aunt Mabel whose memory was kept alive as part of our family's oral history by my father, George Wilson, who moved to Australia from NZ after WWII. Now remembered, never forgotten.
