The birth year was given as 1861 on that 1920 census - seems a coincidence that he was in
Oakland, Alameda and the death record age 60 was in Alameda. Coincidence  ???
It is not uncommon for ages to be wrong on census, depends who gave the information or was he trying to make himself younger  :-\

Many thanks again to everyone who has responded to this enquiry about "Tartan John". It seems he kept making himself 10 years younger after he crossed the Atlantic. Fascinating details about him such as "part of his left ear was missing". Now that i have a date for his death I can search the local newspaper here in Scotland to see if there is an intimation of his death.
Thank you all

Annie McCaskill was educated in local schools and for a time worked for the Santa Cruz Powder Co., where her father worked for many years.

She was named 1974 Woman of the Year by the Santa Cruz Area Chamber of Commerce and "Woman of Achievement" in 1973 by the four Santa Cruz County Business and Professional Womens clubs. Over the years she contributed to many civic projects. She was instrumental along with former police chief Al Huntsman in forming the first Boys Club in Santa Cruz. McCaskill was active with United Fund and the Santa Cruz redevelopment project. She is also said to have held the oldest membership of the First Presbyterian Church. She is a past president of the Santa Cruz Business and Professional Womens Club. Surviving her are her sister, Frances McCaskill of Santa Cruz and several cousins. Services will be held at Normans Family chapel Saturday at 2 p.m. with the Rev. Tom Carr of the First Presbyterian Church officiating.
