I can't find a James Granger/Grainger in 1851 who would fit born 1847 Bainsford/Falkirk.

I can't find a birth/baptism on SP for a John that would fit so that's probably James in 1851.

Torryburn not Alloa.

Margaret Watson KELTIE b. 20 Jul 1849
Christening Date: 12 Aug 1849 Torryburn, Fife
James KELTIE & Cecilia MASTERTON
Batch: C114587

Death after 1901 so I'll search SP for it.

Death 1917 GRANGER Margaret (KELTY) Falkirk, Stirling Age 68

No middle name. Watson is her grandmother's name.
