India - T. Hill Willson Died 7 Mar 1877 at Muree
« on: Tuesday 05 July 16 10:49 BST (UK) »
Found a BDM listing in a Irish Newspaper dated April 1877 as follows:

T. Hill Willson died March 7 1877 at Muree in the Punjab, India. Aged 50, Executive Engineer. Son of Hill Willson of Carrickfergus.

I can find no record of him on FIBIS, Findmypast or Ancestry. Are there burial registers for Muree available to search online?

Thanks

I picked up on the khan. Odd. Western males usually married  local ladies and the offspring normally took fathers surname.

I remember a mention of d.i. khan on roots chat a while ago. He might be worth checking out out of interest
