They know I am doing this research, also I got some more information. Today I found John and Agnes' grave Agnes was nicknamed Netta on the grave. John Ferguson died in 1984 aged 63 and Agnes Davidson died in 1993 aged 76. My aunt told me her dad died on his 60th birthday in 1980, scotlandspeople has it down as he died at 59. She said her mum died around 4 or 5 years ago so about 2015. I also got Roberts mother who was Josephine Murray. She died in 1968 at 81.

There are two deaths for a Robert Murray 1980 age 59 on Scotlandspeople. One is in the registration district Renfrew with the mother's maiden name Rankin and the other is in the Ayr registration district mother's maiden name McNeil. Which one is the death of your Aunt's father Robert Murray 1920-1980

I'd say this is your Aunt's Grandmother and grandfather's marriage.
James Murray married a Josephine McNeil 1909 registration district Tarbolton ref 619/ 5

Hi Daniel

Not been able to find a marriage for Robert Murray to an Elizabeth or any that would match a death 4 to 5 years ago. Do you know where she died?

I am guessing Elizabeth died in Tarbolton. I found a death a few days ago on scotlandspeople that looked like the right one an Elizabeth Murray who died in 2012 aged 84. I can't remember where it said she died but I think it was Ayr or Tarbolton.

Hi Daniel.

I think the only solution to this one is your Aunt's birth cert, to find out the full names of her parents
