I am pretty sure that the J J Paterson listed is the same female who is on the Dalbeattie memorial but I don't know of her connection with Darvel.

Glasgow Herald. Friday, 20th. August, 1915. (p.11)

"Captain Nicol Jamieson, 4th. R.S.F., who is reported killed at the Dardanelles, was a son of Provost Jamieson, Darvel. He was educated at Morrison Academy, Creiff, where he was gold medallist in 1900, and afterwards studied languages for a year in France, Holland, and Belgium. He joined the Territorials in April, 1902, and passed his examination in August of the same year; after which he was gazetted Lieutenant, and in the following year, gained his certificate as Captain. He was a member of the 4th. Battalion R.S.F. shooting team, and in 1913 he shot for the Ayrshire officers in the county competition. Captain Jamieson was well known in Rugby football circles. He played the game for seven or eight years, taking part in the trial matches for the West against the South and the North and the East, and was for some time Captain of the Kilmarnock Rugby Football Club. He was an enthusiastic Freemason and for several years held the position of R.W.M. in Darvel Lodge, No. 971. He was also a Royal Arch Provincial office-bearer and a Past Provincial office-bearer, and had taken his 18th. degree in the craft. He was a director of Alexander Jamieson and Company (Limited), lace manufacturers, Darvel, of which company his father, who has been Provost of Darvel for many years, is chairman."
