Not finding him for definite in 1871 there are a few possibles but none with right occupation or saying born Airdrie. Let me know if you want details of any.

Hello Barbara,

Looks as though all the children arrived at some time.

Death of siblings in Qld.

1882/B14892 Crawford George - Robert Crawford - Jane Smith
1893/C03652 Crawford James - Robert Crawford - Jane Smith
1897/B29877 Crawford Alexander - Robert Crawford - Jane Smith
1913/B17087 Crawford John - Robert Crawford - Jane Smith

The eldest is John but I had better check all for marriages. Ha, too many of them.

Parents also arrived. Error in the reg for Jane:

Deaths
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...'

Toowong Cemetery
Portion 13 Section 14 Grave 2
Crawford Robert 05 / 09 / 1879 Unknown
Crawford Jane 22 / 09 / 1892 Unknown
Crawford Colin Wylie 03 / 06 / 1887 Unknown
Crawford Norman Robert 13 / 08 / 1886 Unknown
