We can not find info about Marthaís family in Kirkconnell (various spelling exist), Dumfriesshire nor her fatherís occupation.
That is not surprising, because a lot of research by other people on your previous thread proves pretty conclusively that the Martha Henderson born in Kirkconnell in 1815 was not the one who married Peter Rutherford in 1833. See
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=852283.msg7203847#msg7203847.

As for her husband Peter, again it has been pointed out to you that your Peter's age at death suggests that he was born in 1792/1793, so he is twenty years older than the Peter born in Redgorton in 1812.

This was all posted in https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=852283.0 months ago, so why are you still trying to pursue those lines of enquiry into the wrong people? You have to stop believing what you find in online trees and follow the facts in the primary sources.

So far, you know from the primary sources that Peter Rutherford, born about 1792/1793, died in Toronto in 1846, married Martha Henderson, born 1807, died in Toronto in 1844, daughter of Thomas Henderson, wright, in Edinburgh in 1833. None of these primary sources mentions Kirkconnel or Redgorton, or even Dumfries-shire or Perthshire.

As MonicaL said, DonM found them on www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk and he posted them on your other thread on 22 August 2021.
Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.
