Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

It's possible junior had left for Australia though I don't have him in shipping records yet.

Married Mary born Largs:

A very different occupation so is this the right one?

Parents also arrived. Error in the reg for Jane:

Sep 1879/B13137 Crawford Robert - James Crawford - Alice Hay
Sep 1892/B25342 Crawford John - John Smith - ** born Scotland aged 78 years

I have yet to confirm that is the right death reg for Robert senior. It should say 'born Scotland...'
