Neil Jamieson (1832–1897)

from Ovens and Murray Advertiser

A well-known Albury tradesman, Mr. Neil Jamieson, senior, passed away at his residence, Kiewa-street south, on Saturday at the age of 65 years. Mr. Jamieson had been failing in health for the past twelve months, and the cause of death was dropsy. The deceased and his eldest son (who is a popular amateur theatrical entertainer), had carried on business as blacksmiths, &c., in Townsend-street, Albury, for the past seven years. Mr. Jamieson had previously resided at Corowa, Wangaratta and Tungamah. In his trade the old man was exceptionally skilful; he was an expert ploughmaker and possessed no little gift of inventiveness. As a ploughmaker Mr. Jamieson had achieved considerable fame, and among his awards was first prize at the Chicago World's Fair. The deceased was a sturdy upright character, like so many of his nationality (Scotch-Canadian), and of uncommon intelligence. Mr. Jamieson leaves a wife and a family of sons and daughters, several of whom are grown up and married. — " Daily News."
