A number of items belonging to a Pvt Charles Lawson McCulloch have appeared at auction this week in Glasgow, Scotland. It is always very poignant to me when this happens - the personal belongings of someone appearing in a public auction, not knowing where they came from and equally where they will end up. You always hope that they will go to a good home.
From this we can infer that Charles was born around 1892 in Glasgow. A search in the birth indexes returned a positive result:
MCCULLOCH CHARLES LAWSON M 1892 644/9 826 Kelvin
A search of the Scottish Death indices for Henry McCulloch in Lanark provided a death in 1913 at age 64 and mother's maiden name of Monteith. This places Henry's birth at about 1849.
