James McPherson Summers
« on: Thursday 27 August 20 08:12 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any information regarding my great uncle James McPherson Summers.  I believe he went to Australia in 1881, he is on the census here then, but I have a record of his marriage in 1881 at St Rose Church Kapunda where he married Mary Maguire.  He also lived in Mingary.  I have no other information regarding what work he did, his children or his death.

There is a birth on SP of a James Mcphersen Summers, 1858, in Sandwick & Cunningsburgh, Shetland. This could be him?

Son of Anthony Summers, Sailor & Christina Susana McPherson
