Have you checked SP for marriages?   www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

What is the last census you have them on as a guideline for a marriage date?

Archibald & Mary are still in Roxburgh in 1901 minus the 3 girls but plus 3 more children

If you check the English 1901 - there are a couple of possible entries may be them - both born Scotland but ages out

Agnes 1883 in Cumberland

Isabell 1882 in Durham

I think that I have found them in the 1911 census both working in the south of England Isabella in Kensington as a domestic cook and Agnes in Eton as a domestic nurse.

Just cannot find Maggie.   Her BC shows her name as "Margaret-Comb"   ???????

Harry:  I'm taking a chance on this.  I don't know how often you read it, but we seem to have the same family tree interests.
