Robert, John & Ellen with 2nd spouse Elizabeth in 1871:

1861
Piece 573 Folio 2 Page 8

POLLOCK, Robert son M 9 Tobacco Spiner Greenock Renfrewshire

So it fits with a few things missing.

Middle names help:

A complex and at times fragmented family... I dared to check out some trees earlier... Wow! What a mess :biggrin:

I wonder why John Sr is rarely around with immediate family?
