This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Cecilia Jamison became a portrait painter, writer of children's books and romance novels, and of scholarly articles for national periodicals.    She married George Hamilton in Boston, Massachusetts in the early 1860s, and then went alone for three years to study portrait painting in Rome, Italy. 

Returning to the United States, she set up studios in New York City and Boston, earning a living with her portrait commissions.   She also began having her writings published.

In 1878, she re-married, and her husband was Samuel Jamison.  The couple moved to Live Oak Plantation in Louisiana near Thibodaux, and from there she earned a distinguished reputation for her adult and children's literature.   In 1887, the Jamisons moved to New Orleans, where she became involved in the city's literary and art circles.  She also became a social welfare advocate.

Her husband died in 1902, and she became a permanent resident of Massachusetts, where she died in 1909 in Roxbury.

John Mahe, Encyclopaedia of New Orleans Artists, 1718-1918
