      James a wood turner & Margaret Fox. They married 29 Nov. 1865 at
      dundee. The father informed and signed.

      Are he & his wife cousins of some sort, or is it a coincidence that they have the same surname?

      Per his probate in India, he owned property there, so he must have been there for awhile at some time.
