Marriages of Dunlop Brothers To Adam Sisters

Thomas Dunlop and Jean Whyte, who were farming in Frankfield, Glasgow, from about 1803, had six sons. The marriages of three of them have been firmly established, but the marriages of the other three, James, Andrew and Alexander, have not. There is oral tradition that four Dunlop boys married four Adam girls who were dressmakers in Glasgow. The Glasgow Post Office/Trade Directories confirm that between about 1828 and 1850 there were four or possibly five Adam girls in Glasgow who were dressmakers or similar. The Scottish OPRs reveal that a James Dunlop married a Jean Adam in 1822, that an Andrew Dunlop married an Agnes Adam in 1827, and that an Alexander Dunlop married an Elisa Adam in 1828. But are these marriages mine? I am not convinced of it! Does anybody know?
