James' death cert will let you be more certain of his parents' names. Always good to confirm key documents to let you be more certain  ;)

From other people's online research, his birth shows as being on 26 Sep 1830 in Unst, Shetland to Hosea Sandison and Janet Sutherland - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VQQK-958

This entry is included for him for 1851:

Alexander Sandison 28, wool comber b. Unst, Shetland
Williamina Sandison 26, thread reeler, b. Unst, Shetland
James Sandison, 20, brother, Shoemaker (journeyman)
Address: 98 Gallowgate Porthill Close, Aberdeen Greyfriars

James' death is showing as having taken place on 12 Mar 1909 at the Aberdeen Poorhouse, Old Mill, New Hills, Aberdeenshire. Died of unknown causes. Previous residence 23 Don Street, Woodside.
