Bonny Stevens:- John GREIG. John is our direct ancestor. We have been unable to confirm his birth or death dates. We estimate he was born about 1811 and died between 1853 and 1859. We know he worked as a brick moulder. My grandmother, Jeanie LIND m.s. Montgomery, grew up knowing her maternal grandmother, so heard many family stories. Grandma said that her grandfather John Greig disappeared mysteriously one night. He had been working as a night watchman in a shipyard, and one night never came home. His body was never found. John's wife and children always assumed that he fell into the sea and drowned. We've been unable to confirm her story. There is no death registration, so either the death was not recorded (no body, no proof of death) or he disappeared prior to 1855.
