Searching for any information about my paternal ghrandfather
JAMES BARR Born 1869 Greenock, son of Neil Barr and Janet Nee Cameron
James had the middle name of Gilmour, but seems to have dropped the use of it.
He married in 1896 to Sarah Boyd, daughter of William Boyd & Catherine Carmichael
as of 1901 I have found three children Neil, Catherine & Cameron, were there any more?
In the 1901 census (Scottish) wife Sarah was described as "wife of soldier-reservist" which I have taken to mean that he may have been involved in the Boer War, at present trying to obtain more information on that
James died in 1913. Some years later Sarah remarried to William Southon, she died in 1949, informant on death certificate was her son C.Barr
she was at that time living at Campbell Street, Greenock.
Would love to contact any descendants to share our family history, are there any out there? Please contact me
