So, I can't find a marriage record for John Fleming & Elizabeth Osman.

The marriage for John Fleming to Mary Motherwell took place in 1829.
There is a marriage for Elizabeth Osman to John Brown (Mariner) in Bo'Ness on 18/03/1828.

I have found one census with John & Elizabeth in, the 1841 census - but no children listed, only an Unknown man though Mary Fleming was born c.1835 so where is she? And a possible sister, Agnes?

I have found two censuses for John & Mary, 1841 - John (30 - Carter), Mary (35) & daughter Jean (3 Mo). No Mary or Andrew.
And in 1851 - John (50 - Carter) Mary (44) Nancy (18) Mary (16) John (11). So in this one no Andrew Fleming, no Jean & no Mary Fleming (born 1844). Could Nancy be Agnes?

After 1851, the census returns go dark for this family. Apart from Elizabeth Fleming, who is in the 1861/71 census.
