Can't see this family in 1841....but with Carole's suggestion of checking on SP...

I can't see Thomas' details, but there are children born in Kirriemuir in the right time frame to a David Whitecross and a Jean Lindsay (which you have mentioned).

Margaret 1802
Ann 1803
Betty 1805
James 1807
Janet 1809
David 1811
William 1814
Jean 1815
Elizabeth 1818
Frances 1820

What is the source of the name Jane Lindsay as a possible mother to Thomas?

One online tree (available to view only www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/person/tree/36734920/person/19388811477/factswith a subs to A/try - gives at least one additional child to this couple:

Alexander 1823

Added: Some additional notes here for some of these children http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hilaryfr/whytcross/whitecross/

Also, lots of details here on RC from an old post www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=426981.msg2923190#msg2923190

In 1871 he is re-married to Catherine so downloading a copy of his marriage cert will give parental info

He was still alive in 1901

He died in 1901 according to the SP index

Thomas Whitecross aged 73 Arbroath  272/1  239   

It costs 6 credits to download a copy of his death cert = 1.50

From some of the entries mentioned by Carole, this is 1861 in full:

Thomas Whitecross 34 b. Kirriemuir
Joseph Whitecross 5 b. Dysart Fife
James Whitecross 1 b. Arbroath
Lawrence Whitecross Under 1 Month b. Arbroath
Catharine Blackward 32 servant b. ? Fifeshire

Address: Croals Wynd, Arbroath

I think baby Lawrence above should read William? https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYB4-BF7

Catherine Blackward....should be Blackwood...is I think who shows as wife to Thomas in later years. Cannot see a marriage though. They either didn't marry or the marriage was irregular and will not show on the statutory registers.

In the 1871 census there shows an additional child, Francis born 1869 in Alyth. There is this possible index entry https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FQXD-Y9R  Catherine mother is showing as Dickson. There seems to be a number of surnames coming in an out...

Best bet is the 1901 death registration mentioned by Carole.
