Not really sure when John POLLOCK was born. Can't find a likely one for him in 1841.

1901
Civil Parish: Greenock East
County: Renfrewshire
Address: 12 Wellington St
James Dickson Head 58 Ship Carpenter Greenock
Bella Dickson 51 Paisley ** Isabella nee POLLOCK
Janet Dickson 17
Andrew Dickson 15
Robert Dickson 11
Bella Dickson 4
John Pollock father in law 77 Retired baker Glasgow
Archibald Mcdougald boarder 28 Journeyman Baker Tarbert, Argyleshire

1901 census has age as 77 and a newspaper notice has his death in 1901 but SP has age as 68. ???

Thanks Barbara.

There are 3x John that I know of, two were bakers and one a weaver. I also have the weaver in my tree but he is all sorted.

John Pollock, baker, died at his son-in-law's, James Dickson, 12 Wellington Street, Greenock on 26th October 1901. (Greenock Telegraph 26.10.1901)

That is the John in my tree so curious he is not with them in 1891 and even more curious the age for the 1901 death in SP is 68.

Dave
