Willhelmina Nicolson, was she a Shetlander Maddy?

Skoosh.

The newspaper reports don't say where she was from, or where her husband was. Just did a quick search and was surprised to see it's not an uncommon name.

Modified to add:
Some other reports give her name as Jemima NICOLSON or GRIERSON (age 42 in 1923), she had not lived with her husband since 1914,  and one report says she is from Leven. So I guess not Shetland.
