      William Baikie Scarth went to India where he served in the British army (or British East India Company army before the Mutiny/Indian war of independence in '57); this presumably c1855 or so. I did not know he was in London in 1861; I thought his service in India lasted til the 1870s. Perhaps he returned temporarily to London. He was reputedly married in India, but I have no information on his family life there. He was in Liverpool by 1875, because our records indicate that he brought both his parents May and John to live with him there, and that one of them was dead by 1875. He remarried in Liverpool, to two sisters successively (Elizabeth Ann and Sarah Beynon I think, from South Wales), and had perhaps 8 children, some of whom were sent to Chicago c1893. (One of them later became a Mrs. Stryker there, and had a son named Russell.
      died 2 weeks after retiring as an Estate Manager
