February 9th, 2015 “Night at the Museum” will be a special treat. Hear the story of the Jamieson and Life families of Minden. Ann Mays Harlan and Bonnie Jamieson Culverhouse are first cousins. Ann’s maternal grandparents and Bonnie’s paternal grandparents were Fielding and Sadie Jamieson. Fielding Jamieson had a 40-year career working for Louisiana Power & Light Company. Sadie Jamieson was an LVN in the nursery at Minden Hospital. Ann’s mother was Elizabeth Jamieson Mays. Bonnie’s dad was Pearce Jamieson, founder of the Jamieson, Wise, Martin C.P.A. firm.
