Bell Mearns-Benholm

My 3 times Gt Grandmother was Bell (Isobel)Mearns, christened Benholm 1809 (probably Johnshaven) Kincardine and died 1887 in Johnshaven. Her parents were John Mearns and Eisabeth (Betty) Ritchie and their other children were David 1802, John 1804, Thomas 1807, David 1808 and Elisabeth 1811. The only marriage I can find for John and Betty that seems to fit the time scale is 1800 in Burntisland !
On the 1841 Census John is shown as a 65 year old White Fisher, born Kincardineshire and a widow.
Does anyone have any other information on this family.
