Birth

John McLeod has advised that DNA tests have shown that John's Father was John Campbell McLEOD (1876-1925), who we show as his Foster Father, because no Father was named when his birth was registered.

Inquest

The finding of the Coroner, Mr. T Maloney, was that John died from the severance of the spinal cord through a gunshot wound self inflicted on 7th February 1949.
