COMPLETE MANY THANKSJohn Campbell Findley/Finley
« on: Monday 12 December 11 19:12 GMT (UK) »

Looking for some more information on  John he was born around 1854 in Scotland could have been Perthshire or Forfarshire

son of George Findlay and Janet Isles Campbell  ( the spelling of the surname varies) I  have very little on him he left Scotland

apparently around 1875/ 1876 and headed for  Pennsylvania . Whether he stayed there or went elsewhere I don't know.

Any help or futher information on him much appreciated.

Regards,

suzilad
