No-one has John in a GR tree.........not even you, Elizabeth

So there won't be anyone on here who knows who you're looking for.

If he's on freebmd, it isn't with the info you give

This is the only record remotely close for 1904
Births Dec 1904 (>99%)
MCGARITY John Middlesbro' 9d 587

And the only one I found in a GR tree with birth year 1904 was born in Scotland
