Thanks Geoff.

Looks ok with the grandchildren.

I can't find the Grant & Grant marriage and have no idea of mmn.

Given the deaths in post #2 there should be one in 1871.

One trees gives this for Janet [marriage]
"Marriage Abt. 1810
Grigor Grant
Janet (Jonnet) Grant(1793–1863)"

And this for [death]
"Death 05 Sep 1863 South Street, Grantown on Spey"

I haven't checked any of this.

Thanks Geoff.

No middle name Gordon found.

Qld. Birth 1876/B21367 Grant Collingwood McKenzie - Gregory - Mary Sadlier

1863 death for Janet looks OK given this citation from SP on a couple of trees.

Thanks Geoff.

Only one death in 1863 and mmn is Gordon and age 68 in the index but 70 and McKenzie in the transcription.
