Hello,

Henry SIMSON b. ? d. 1885

married 26 Jul 1855 Blythswood, Glasgow

Margaret McASLAN b. abt 1831 Glasgow d. ?

I'd like a look up for the family in 1861 and 1881 please.

Don't think they can be found in 1871. Henry is at Helensburgh, Dumbartonshire in 1881.


Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Interesting. I thought he was in America in 1871.

I must have been given the birth date for a different Margaret. Looks as though they had not yet seen the census listings.

Regards,

Dave
