Hello and Welcome to Roots Chat  :)

Have you checked Scotland's People for their marriage??  http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/
You need to register and pay credits to view any certificate.  Using their free search I only found one marriage   in 1912  of a William Douglas Armstrong to Margaret Patterson in the District of Makerstoun in Roxbroughshire

The marriage certificate should list both parents of the bride and groom

Kay

Edit - A guess at her baptism in 1891 in Castleton, Roxburghshire, but their marriage cert should confirm her parents
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTXT-14F

I think this could be the Margaret who was baptised in 1891 on the 1901 census living at Nether Raw, Castleton, Roxburghshire

Wm Patterson 55 b Kilmarnock, Ayrshire
Elizabeth Patterson 40  b England
Janet Patterson    14 b Castleton
Maggie Patterson 9 b Castleton

thank you kay,

I have found a possible birth abt 1891 and marriage abt 1919.
there seems to be a discrepancy in the surname spelling !
the birth cert spells Paterson with one t ..

will order certs to confirm.
