Hello & welcome
There won't be a birth certificate as this was well before Civil Registration. All you will get is a Parish Baptism naming the parents which you already have.
The Baptism took place in Largo Fifeshire.

Welcome!

You have probably already read his "bio" at Findagrave:
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/119433121

It states he married a second time to Prudence Hamilton. Would you know what year that occurred?
