I am trying to find out a bit more information on this couple Robert b 1847 Midlothian Scotland and his wife Hellen Brown
b 1849 also Scotland.

I have them on 1881 census Robert is a stonemason --they have the following family , Agnes , William and Robert.

On Find a Grave I have found I think Robert and Hellen he died in 1903 and she in 1919 the birth dates are a few days out
.
I am hoping that if this is the couple when they left Scotland and what happened to their family and any other children they might have had in America

Thanks
