Looks good  :)
Who signed the death cert ?

Gadget gave us the 1871 Census which had Elizabeth as widowed in 1871 , so a death for James should be between 1861 and 1871.

I did a search for that this afternoon, ev. None that I could see in Wigtownshire and about 9 elsewhere in Scotland. I was thinking that he might have moved around if he was a gas fitter at that stage so he may have died outwith the county - ?? Glasgow.

Where in Glasgow was John's son born, Matt?

Just remembered that Terry has the MI booklet for Inch - it might be worth trying that thread:

She doesn't come on as often as she used to though.

No, maybe not, I was just thinking about that obituary listing him in Wolverhampton (staffordshire0 but I think  its best to concentrate on Scotland now.
