Having trouble finding James parents I know from my grandad and scotlands people he was born in Jedburgh in 1870 he died in 1933 in Edinburgh.

He married Mary Nicholson these were my great grandparents they had 9 children. Don't know what else to write but of all family members he is a mystery sadly my grandad is no longer living so I have no-one to help me I have been trying for years and still can't find his parents or if he had siblings.

Thank you in advance for any help. :-)
