Can anyone find the death of George BENNIE born 1865 Bridgeton
« on: Friday 06 April 18 07:52 BST (UK) »
George Bennie was born 3 May 1865 in Bridgeton, the son of William Bennie and Mary Ann Cook. He was not the George Bennie who died on 13 February 1864 in Bridgeton - this was his older brother.

He was last sighted in the 1929/30 Glasgow directory:
Bennie, Geo (of Wm Bennie and Sons) res Burnbank House, off Sheepburn Rd Uddingston
and the 1932 Electoral Roll at 81 James St Bridgeton with his brother, James

I can't find a death for him in Scotland, England or Australia. All his brothers and sisters died in Glasgow. He was not the informant on his youngest brother, James ' death in 1951.

Where did he go? Any leads gratefully accepted :-)

Have you tried searching for him as Binnie? I have found my Binnys as Benny, Bennie, Binnie, Beny, Beney and various other creative spellings!

Try searching for b*nn* and see if that helps.

Forfarian, thanks for the suggestion - I hadn't tried using wildcards. Lots of interesting results but nothing leapt out at me. I did find a Rennie that looked promising but unfortunately not mistranscribed.

Colin, I did check the Linliththgow one - a perfect fit agewise but sadly not the right parents :-(
