Donald Campbell Manson
« on: Friday 05 January 18 20:15 GMT (UK) »
Donald Campbell Manson born 1st August 1883 in Pulteneytown, Wick to Alexander Manson (1857-1942) and Jane Campbell (1855-1912).  I can trace him as far as 1901 to Pulteneytown, Wick where he was a Telegraph Messenger.  Does anyone have him in their family tree or have any ideas on where he went?  Thanks.

A few spare credits - one to discount -  Donald Campbell Manson in Cuyahoga Ohio has a slightly different birth date - 12 December 1883 born Caithness about 1884 -
