My grandfather Angus Robertson's sister Margaret married George Saunders on 13/6/1890 in Dollar, Clackmannan. George was 23, usually living in Dunfermline, Fife and was a bachelor, employed as a cloth beetler. Both could sign their names.
(Fascinating what you can learn! Look it up here:
His mother was Betsy Saunders, nee Blyth. Witnesses were another George Saunders (possibly an uncle) and sister Annie Robertson (most likely Margaret's sister).

George's wedding registration states his father as Charles Saunders, mason journeyman (deceased.

LDS submitted entry for daughter Ella in 1891 to father George Saunders and mother Margaret Robertson. (Ella could be short for Isabella, a frequently given name in the Robertson family.)

Birth registration of Peter Robertson Saunders, born 8 March 1894 at 7.30pm at 37 1/2? North Inglis St, Dunfermline to George and Margaret Saunders.
Peter's death in 1915 is recorded on the war memorial for students of Dollar Academy, Dollar, Clackmannan, Scotland.

Info of other siblings or offspring of Saunders, Duff or Campbell to children of Peter Robertson (1831), of Dollar, would be welcome.
