Hi all, can anyone help me with the GREENLEES family. JOHN GREENLEES my G/Grandfather was born c1852 Glasgow area, at the time of his marriage to JANE LAMBERTON in 1874, he was a Baker in the Glasgow area.
Last sighted on the 1881 Census. Jane's death cert. in 1928 says "widow".
Where do I look for him after 1881 - any clues welcome. Dawn
