Erato has kindly solved the handwritten names and details I needed to know
As it's not the correct man
Other names on the page & birthplaces are no longer relevant

Though I would be interested in how you transcribe the names at house 13 compared to how ancestry has transcribed rthem

Line 129 come up as George Langdon ...not Taylor

Here's the link to my mystery man
