Trying to find McKie

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Susan Report 4 Feb 2007 21:39

Trying to find information about my grandfather John Macbeth McKie who died in 1926 shortlyt after arriving in New Zealand. His wife was Ada Martha Mireau and they lived in Argyle Road, West Ham, London. I am led to believe he was previously a policeman in Liverpool. He had four children, William (known as Bill), Ronald (my father) and Edward ( known as Eddie or Ginger). There was also a daughter who died in early childhood. I would be grateful for any leads.
