I can't access the 1911 Census as I don't have credits but there is a Mary Fleming aged 74 in Old Monkland. Also an Helen Fleming aged 38 and the same reference of 652/3 1/2 is given for both.

There is a vaguely possible death, age a rew years out and not sure re the name

Mary Shaw Fleming aged 87 1924 Old Monkland 652/3 22

Children have middle names Shaw, Thompson and Gilchrist.

Jean Thompson 16 Apr 1869
Isabella Shaw 11 Nov 1870
Mary Gilchrist 30 Dec 1871
James 30 Dec 1871
Helen 25 Jan 1873
John 24 Mar 1874
all Old Monkland

Census have Mary born New Monkland. I can't find a baptism that fits.

Death 1885 FLEMING JOHN 51 THOMSON 652/3 67 Old Monkland (Eastern District)

Naming pattern does not match. First daughter = father's mother.

29/07/1832 FLEMING JOHN - JAMES FLEMING/JANE THOMSON FR437 M 652/ 20 176 Old Monkland or Coatbridge

Third daughter = mother

If swapped then Mary's mother would be Isabella Shaw.

I can't find a Gilchrist marriage to an Isabella Shaw.

I can't find a death/burial for an Isabella Gilchrist in Lanark.

NSW Marriage 9153/1911 FLEMING JAMES - THOMPSON LYDIA F - COWRA * 20 Sep 1911

I didn't have that marriage in my tree. Something odd is going on. James is not living with Lydia.

James is living with Jessie but they didn't marry until 1959.

1925, 1928 & 1932 QLD Electoral Roll - Moreton - Coorparoo
FLEMING James, Salisbury, S.C. Line, storeman
FLEMING Jessie Matilda, Government rd., Salisbury, home duties
