Hi Carol,
I don't want to get too excited yet, but I think that I not only know
details of this family, but a descendant lives in the same small village
as I do and her ancestors are buried in our churchyard.
What a stroke of luck!
Here goes with my guess.
Alexander Kinghorn married Catherine (Kate) Ronald) 8th November 1881
Spital Street ,Stirling
He was aged 20 and was a Tailor (journeyman)
His father was William kinghorn, a flax presser , mother Janet Young
The children that I can find in my indexes are
William b 1883
Catherine Bryce b 1884, d 1888
Janet Young b 1886
Helen Jane (Nellie) b 1888
The name Hector was the clue !
William (1883) married Mary Darroch and had a son Hector.
He died a few years ago and it is his daughter that lives in the village.
She is the reason that I started looking into my mother's Kinghorn family tree.
When I discovered that we were both descended from Kinghorns, I thought that I
may find a connection. I have not found one yet, but have collected everything
that I can find on the name.
I hope that this may help your friend .
