BARBOUR Elizabeth, daur 1850 age 1 Greenock, Renfrewshire

I can't see a 2nd marriage for John so it looks as though spouse should be Elizabeth not Jane.

Also daughter Jane is not there so where is she in 1841 & 1851? It seems a bit odd that Jane is the only one not with the family.

I'd like a look up for the family in 1841 please. I've searched FreeCEN and can't find them in 1841 or Jane by herself in 1841 or 1851.
