Margaret's husband William is at sea in 1841 and probably in 1851.

Margaret died in 1850. Looking for son William in 1851.

Found a couple of trees, they don't have the 1851 for William Jr. siblings.

I notice William Jr. may have married in Midlothian, maybe he was sent there when his mother died?
