Received this morning ,and I,ve been there before, with no results.

Hello, I have been researching my great-grandfather, Charles Grey (born in Scotland about 1862). Even after using a professional researcher in Scotland, I have hit a dead-end regarding any information about him prior to his arrival in the U.S. other than the date of birth he listed on his immigration card. I am wondering if you might have any further information share. I am happy to share what I have. Thank you. Nancy Grey Etzwiler

His daughter marries George Armitage Grassby 1887 Canada, father George Armitage Grassby 1862 Patrington ,East Yorkshire.

My connection is the Grassby side, found no birth in SP that fits his DoB.

Charles Grey's US Naturalization card, reflecting his birth in Scotland, DOB as November 11, 1862 and arrival in US on September 10, 1883. He was living at 77 E. 43rd St. in Chicago at the time.

His Mother was English.
Thanks Ellie
