You do not say how long ago you sent the letter.
Have you checked for a telephone number for any Jamieson at that address?
If you are prepared to wait, try again at Christmas - card plus address etc just in case your first letter went AWOL.
Have you tried the facebook site - 2 'children' Michelle and David.

So she was born about 1950 to 1955.
Would this be in Glasgow or elsewhere in Scotland?
Can you remember any names of her siblings, and when were you last in contact with the family?
If she is married to Mr Jamieson but you do not know his name, you cannot look up e.g. bt online for Glasgow for M Jamieson as the entry is usually under the man's name.
If you believe this is totally Scottish based could you alter your title to include that as I have no knowledge of Scottish records.
As you know her parents' names, you can look to see if anyone on here has either of them in their trees, and then try and contact possible relatives.

Do you know if she had any children, and what names they had?

May, I would suggest you try contacting the Mae Jamieson on Facebook, as found by Patchem. Worth a try.
There doesn't seem to be an obvious candidate on If the Facebook contact doesn't work out, it would really help you if you can find out who she married - I assume these records are available on Scotlands People site?
Or if you have an address you might check out the electoral register to see who she was living with.

hi, thank you for your reply,i have no idea what her husbands name is/was.i think she would be in her late fifties/ early sixties.both her parents passed away,they were my uncle/aunt from my mothers side.she has a younger sister,her two brothers have passed away. not sure now if there was a third brother.

There is a Mae Jamieson on facebook.
As you have given no indication of her age it is difficult to tell whether she could be your cousin.
Do you know the name of her husband, and are her parents still alive, and their names?
