Yes I saw that census but thought it strange that the women are listed as Copland and not McQueen

Her husband John Smith  died 22.3.1885 age 74 yrs.

Closest on SP to age I could find although area isn't Dumfries but not impossible as a death occurring outside the home town of anyone would be recorded in the parish where they died whether working/visiting etc.

SMITH JOHN 73
1885
647/ 343
Hamilton
