The Skootamata River is in soutther Ontario, about 20 km east of Madoc.

The connection between Mr. and Mrs. William A. Hamilton (parents of Mr. S.B. Hamilton) and Jackson was established when the couple resided in the Toronto neighbourhood of Rosedale, close to the Group of Sevenís Studio Building at 25 Severn Street. A relationship developed over the years in which Jackson, known by their grandchildren as Uncle Alec, became a close family friend. The Hamiltons owned a vacation property near Bracebridge on Lake Muskoka and would invite Jackson for annual visits. Fittingly, he would lead picnic and painting excursions with the entire clan during these memorable stays. The Hamiltons were great patrons of Jackson who acquired dozens of his works over the course of his career, and they were also gifted several by the artist.
