  There is a Probate record:
"Ruth Gillespie Beattie of 121 New Row, Dunfermline died 15 July 1934 at Dunfermline.   Testate confirmation Cupar 18 Sept to Beulah Beattie or Laurie, 121 New Row.    Will recorded Cupar 11 Sept 1934     909 . 7 . 9d"

       This is the Ruth who married John William Beattie.

       ...So there appears to have been two George Beatties in Dunfermline.      I had thought that George Beattie's father was George Beattie but that is another George Beattie who had a father of the same name.      Your George Beattie's father [as I guess you already know] was actually John Wm Beattie.

Tthe Ancestry transcription is appalling
Par for the course then. It looks clear enough to me.

Struggling to find an obvious death for John William Beattie in either England or Scotland, but it looks like he was born 18 Aug 1875  (baptised 12 Sep 1875) in Simonburn, Northumberland, and was the illegitimate son of Margaret Anne Beattie (later Armstrong), b. 1858, Simonburn, Northumberland; d. 1915, Hexham Northumberland.

In 1881, John William is in Simonburn with his mother and his grandparents, John Beattie and Margaret Herdman; and in 1891 and 1901, he's with his aunt, Martha Beattie and her husband Stephen Moor. He married Ruth Gilhespy in 1902 in Newcastle.
