Position: Crew
Age: 44

Edgar Norman Jamieson was born in Massachuesetts on October 13,1903.  He was the son of Humphrey Isiah Jamieson, who was a whaleboat pilot and life saver on Cuttyhunk.

Edgar was survived by his widow, Leona (Chase) Jamieson, and a son, Edgar Jamieson, both of New Bedford; his mother, Annie L. (Veeder) Humphrey;  two brothers and a sister, Madeline.

The dragger Margee & Pat was fishing on Georges Bank shortly before the gale of November 12, 1947. When she failed to return to New Bedford, the Coast Guard began a search, assisted by Army and Navy planes. The search continued until November 20, but no trace of the vessel was found.

In February 1949, a hulk was seen drifting about 100 miles east of Boston. It was thought to be either the Margee & Pat or her sister ship, the Belle, which disappeared January 9, 1949, with seventeen men aboard.
