With William, if we assume he is James' son from a first marriage, there is a birth of a William to a James R and a Margaret Fish in the Clyde area of Glasgow on 14 Nov 1862. There is a possible death for Margaret in 1863. That year, a Margaret Ross/Fish aged 25 died in the High Church area of Glasgow. Can't tell from just the index which way round the names are for this margaret (married v. maiden name). You would need to view the image for this.

The marriage for the James Ross and Margaret Fish we are looking at took place in Edinburgh in 1861. You have James's parents details from his marriage and death so it should be straightforward to check if you want to what parents show on this 1861 marriage entry.

Nope! Forget that...I think.

From 1861, I found this entry:

James Rosa (as transcribed on a/try) 35, lodger, musician b  Glasgow
Jane Rosa 31 wife lodger b. Glasgow
Charles Ross son 4 months b. Glasgow

Address: 157 Bridgegate, Glasgow/ Clyde

There are 4 births showing for a Charles born 1860/1 in the Glasgow area. They are not the ones in Hutchesonton or Bridgeton as these show on Family Search and you can check  parents' details, so it potential points to Clyde (where we have the above census entry) or Govan. As luck would continue to have it, the Clyde and Govan entries do not show on FS so the only way of checking the parents is via the original image.

Found both deaths, they match up with James Ross and being a musician. However I have not been able to find a marriage of James Ross and Jane/Janet Sloan. Any ideas?

She wasn't the one born in Liverpool though was she? wasn't that the woman we thought might be George's mum in the Edinburgh census.
