Looks like the family on the '41 census living in Stranraer, and a possible for Janet/Jessie widowed in '51 still in Stranraer.

My Janet was in Eaglesfield in 1841 merryhow. I have her death certificate but I am struggling to find her husbands death. She was a widow when she died in 1859 .

 Who registered her death? Andrews profession on '41 census, children's names. These might help us find him.

Her son Andrew registered her death....her husband wasn’t on the 1841 census or 1851 and he worked in the limestone quarry
