Hello Barbara,

Thanks.

Longs is probably Largs. If that is the same one what a change of occupation.

Born 15 Nov 1849 so age fits.

1847- 1851 seems to be only one born in Largs.

Archibald was present at the death in Largs but no address appears on the certificate for him.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

He seems to be the only one born Largs abt 1849 so please see if you can find him in 1891.

Curious. I'm not sure about that problem. It's not double spacing because there is one spot with no line in between.
