    Died Bef 1866 
    Notes 
    • He is "James a steam ship fireman dec'd" per Son Geo's 1882 marriage, but he is "George a marine engineer" in the same son's 1925 death record. I'd think the mrg rec, being from the son himself & being earlier, would be more correct.

      It's unclear whether he ever married Eliza - in the 1861 census, she has 2 Wanless children, but is listed as single, not married; she is called spinster at her 1863 mrg to John Smith.

      Who could he be?
         a) James Keillor Wanless b. 1818 (s/o James W & Jean Whyte) was a seaman in the merchant service and lived on Smalls Lane in the 1860s, but he was married and having other children in the same time frame
         b) James Wanless b. 1825 (s/o John W & Mary McKay) was a seaman and later a shipping porter or reporter in Dundee, married Mary Baxter Ramsay in 1850 and had children with her
         c) James Wanless b. 1830 (s/o Wm W and Alison Gray) was a fireman, a steamship stoker, and marine engineer; he married Mary Thornton in 1851 but she died between 1851 and 1858 when he married Alison Sturrock - he could have had children by Eliza McInroy in 1857 and possibly even 1860 after his marriage, or perhaps Euphemia is not his

      It would be really useful to have the birth records for George abt 1857 in Lochee, Dundee, and Euphemia abt 1860 in Edinburgh.
