Samina Jamieson (1871 - 1944) and William Thomson (1873 - 1955)

The Jamieson family is related to the McSkimming family through the marriage of Margaret Jamieson and John McSkimming in 1900.

Samina Jamieson is of particular interest because of her marriage to William Thomson.
I believe that William Thomson McSkimming or MacSkimming (1907-1979) got his middle name from his uncle, William Thomson.

I also believe that Margaret Jamieson (1877 - 1932) died while attending the funeral of Samina and William Thomson's son, Hugh Jamieson Thomson in Borgue. Hugh died 2 days before Margaret and the place of death on Margaret's death certificate is "Cooper Croft" which is where Samina and William lived.
