John McCabe


John was born in Newton Mearns 27 August 1899, son of Mr Hugh and Mrs Margaret McCabe, 49 Barrhead Road, Newton Mearns. The only reference found to his death is the inscription on the family gravestone in Mearns Cemetery which states: “Killed in France 1918.”  

While researching John’s history it was discovered that the records relating to his death have been confused with another soldier from Peebles, also with the initial J and the surname McCabe. Despite considerable research, it has not been possible to discover in which regiment John served, when and where he died or the circumstances of his death.
