Her birth was in Ireland and will not help you with your main query which is the parents of her father Andrew

Have you checked Scotlands People OPR's for Andrews birth?

I'm puzzled as to how you found his birthplace was Peebles as neither the 1871/81/91 census entries show anything other than Scotland?
