Unfortunately there's this marriage in Polmont:

It's possible James Johnstone died & Janet remarried to John McGregor.
I notice that 2 of her children are Margaret & William but both common names of course.

Hey, I know I'm about 6 years late on this thread....but wondering if you got anywhere with finding info on John and Janet? I'm currently stuck in this too. I did find a marriage record for John McGregor and Janet Millar on Ancestry from the parish records in Balquidder in 1790 so I'm trying to verify if this is for the correct couple. Any info you found would be appreciated!
