  • Notes 
    • Family tradition says Jessie was the daughter of the son of the Duke of Argyll and his commoner wife. When it became time for the son to succeed his father as the Duke, he abandoned his commoner wife and Jessie's grandmother brought Jessie and her sister to Pictou Island, Nova Scotia. Correspondence with the Office of the Duke of Argyll at Inverary Castle and with the National Library of Scotland could provide no proof of this.
