10 children and 3 died young including first and last. Thought naming pattern was wrong but first-born was right as Alexander - died aged 1.

First two daughters are named opposite the usual way.

Dave
 
Yes, thanks. I'm working my way through the 10 children.
This looks a possible for 1891, Dave.. Helpful for 3 siblings.

Thanks Geoff.

Alexander's age must be 10 years out.

Archibald Malcolm formerly of Largs and Greenock, died at Millport on 28th ? March 1907, age 72.
Obit p.2 Greenock Telegraph 28 Mar 1907

I think that is an error - probably died on 26th.

No, second marriage.

Archibald, the 14 yo in 1881 is a bit of a problem. Closest death I can find is this one.

I found one tree that had the birth dates for all the children but no deaths.

Other two daughters in separate topics.
