Hi June, your post will be seen by more keen helpers if you put it on 'Find Ancestors' - don't forget to delete this one though :-)
Good luck

Don't think he will be a Living Relative if he was born c.1861. I can't see a birth for him in the birth index but there were no penalties for not registering a birth until 1875 so many births were just not registered.
