Hi Ann Thank You for the offer of help! I am looking for George Palmer and his wife Janet (Cameron), who would have been about 40 years old in 1881 and living in the Grangemouth area with several children. I'm not sure where he is from, but Janet was born in Kincardine, Perthshire. Hope this is enough information! Thanks Gail
