Not sure if this will help but there is a baptism for a Helen Sinclair in 1842 in Abbey (Paisley) parents John Sinclair and Margaret nee Nelson. This would nearly fit with the death of Helen Lang in 1891.

If Ellen married John in the 1880's then she could not have been the mother of the children in the 1891 Census.

Unfortunately I can find two marriages

Jane Young is a possibility as there is a baptism 1842 in Paisley for a Jane Young parents Andrew Young and Jean Glen.

I can't find baptisms for any of the Lang children in 1861 census.

This would fit.

Marriage 20/11/1841 LANG JOHN - JANET FERGUSON/FR2902 559/ 80 524 Abbey
