Please could anyone please help....
I'm looking for any information on John Buchanan born around 1878+-5 years in either Lancashire or Cheshire

He was married to Annie but it's hard to make out her surname . They had one child together Eleanor Rose Buchanan born Dec 25th 1904. (MY GRANDMOTHER)
JOHN BUCHANAN seems to be illusive as he I believe he was alive 1904, but Annie was listed as a widow in the 1911 census . I cannot find any information on him :-( either births ,marriages or deaths....
Please I'd appreciate any help
