George Walkingshaw -music teacher
« on: Thursday 26 March 20 15:45 GMT (UK) »

George Walkingshaw was born in 1861 in Newbattle  Midlothian  son of George Walkingshaw and Marion Ross.

He died in Longmore Hospital Edinburgh in 1921 single and his occupation is given as a music teacher
from USA,

I would like to know when he first went to America where he lived and when he returned to Scotland.

Many thanks

from USA,

Is it very clearly written, the USA bit?  No doubt that's what it says?
