I've looked again and I can't find a death for Margaret from 1881 with other surname or maiden name Brown.

Difficult one Dave. Cant find her either but strarted tracing the children. William was a Wesleyan theological student in Lancashire in 1881 and can't find him in 91. Robina, I can't find either. Georgina is with her married sister Isabella in 1891. Then she is in Stirlingshire in Slamannan in 1901 after marrying a John Irvine in Ayr in 1895. And I found this on Scotlands... A big coincidence if it is not her.

1916 MCCALLUM MARGARET BROWN F 85 SLAMANNAN /STIRLING 489/00 0007

Stil can't find this woman in 1891 or 1901 but she could have gone back to using Brown in which case there are some maybes but nothing concrete.
Or maybe she is living with Wm who is travelling as a minister.

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for looking. Yes, possibly using Brown again. I'd say that's her death and that she didn't leave Scotland.

William arrived in Australia 1881 - 1887. ??? Arrival not yet found.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 9 April 1887 p.1
Marriages
McCALLUM - MARTIN.-March 30, 1887, at the residence of the bride's parents, by the Rev. C. Olden, Rev. W. McCallum, only son of the late George McCallum, of Ayr, Scotland, to Cordelia Annie, second daughter of Thomas Martin, Lyndhurst, Glebe.
