William FORLONG - International Genealogical Index Gender: Male Birth: 1762 , , Scotland
Possibly the "spirit dealer, Gallowgate, shop No 21" in the First Glasgow Directory (1787), where there was also a James, manufacturer, Havannah. I have more listings for them from later directories and listings (even more useful - with dates of commencement and relationships) from the records of the Burgesses and Guild Brethren of Glasgow.
Later snippets include Caledonian Mercury of 7 April 1814:
