Jimmie came from Scotland as a young man, and lived with his Aunt and Uncle, the Nesbitts, first in Coalhurst, in Milk River, then back to the Ermacora farm in Coalhurst. After the death of his Uncle and Aunt, Jimmie sold the farm to the Charles Wesselmans and subsequently moved into the Wesselman home.
Jimmie was very kind, using his car to take many of the Coalhurst ladies to Lethbridge to do their shopping. He was a faithful attendant of the Coalhurst Pentecostal Church. He died in University Hospital, Edmonton, in September 1967, at the age of 79. He is buried in Archmount Cemetery beside the Harris's and the Wesselman's.
