Looking for any family information on one of my relatives who was born on the 'Glen Isla' ship bound for Australia in 1857.

Andrew Paton Anderson - Born 1857 On board 'Glen isla'. 

His parents were -
John Anderson, bn 1831 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. Died 1911 Grenfell, NSW, Australia.
Margaret Paton, bn 1830 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. Died 1919, Grenfell, NSW, Australia.
 
I believe Andrew Paton Anderson and Anna Maria Dodd (birthplace and date unknown) were married in 1880 in Narrabri, New South Wales, Australia. However the trail then ends with my access levels on FindMyPast etc regarding researching. ???

Looking to find out any children to the family; any date / place of death for Andrew Paton Anderson and wife.

Thanks for any assistance.

Crisane -

Thanks very much for the info, this fills in a few gaps! Much appreciated!

Also hoping to find out where his wife was born / from. Not sure what Andrew Paton Anderson's  nationality would be classified as when born half way between Scotland and Australia! :)

Giblet,

Thanks for the link! Lived for 91 years when their was probably doubt he would survive the journey from Scotland to Australia in 1857!
