I looked for his wife's death.

Annie Marshall or Wright died in 1963 aged 67 in Springburn [644/4 63]

I checked all the Annie's who died in Springburn that year and only Wright & Marshall match, so she hasn't married again,
if James did die before her.

I was hoping a remarriage would have pinned a rough date for you - but then again maybe he didn't die young after all, I would check her DC and see what it throws up.

Hi Wilma,
Thanks for that - I have printed it out she was a widow and died at 123 Balornock Rd in 1963 (usual address 19 King St Glasgow).It says she died of cerebolvascular accident, I assume that was a hospital in Springburn. I got carried away and found a James Wright who died in Springburn in 1961 age 68 which fits in with his birth. Alas,it's not him. I should have checked Annie's death first. Good news is the witness was her son J Wright of 147 Stevenson St Glasgow.
Thanks,
Ailsa

That would have been Stobhill Hospital on Balornock Road.
Good you found the next generation too - though he's probably another James.

Ailsa,

Try the death notices in the Glasgow Herald. They are on the last page.

https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid= ... page&hl=en

Or the Glasgow Evening Times. Towards the end of the newspaper.

To proceed click on “browse this newspaper”. Let me know if you need help.

Alan

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the links - I found her in the Evening Times and another lead to a daughter Wilma M ! Couldn't see anything in the Herald but many thanks for looking.
