James is believed to have been born in Scotland - possibly Fife around 1806. He was married twice,first to a Janet Philp and second to Robina Hill, and lived in Torryburn. He is believed to gave died some time between 1847 and 1852 in either Torryburn or Dunfermline. James was a miner. He had two daughters by his first marriage, and at least one son Alexander and a daughter Susan from his second plus a stepson Hugh Marshall, also recorded as Malshu. The last known record of James as in the 1841 census for Torryburn. By 1851 Robina Aitken was recorded as a widow and living in Dunfermline. Lookng for a death or burial record.

If you wish to view those records you can by purchasing credits on ScotlandsPeople.

Very few burial records survived and it's a common name so it may be none of those three between the census dates. I was hoping at least to get the middle initial B, but no luck.
