Location?

If it is Perthshire, SCT then entering the parents names on IGI gives you 4 suspects!

Interested in the name Martha Brocious.Am I right in assuming Donald Scrimgeour (b 1835)emigrated? I am descended from Donald's brother James.

The added information on James would be wonderful. The only thing I have for him is a hand written side note stateting he was married twice and had 10 children. I don't know how accurate that is. Plus I show him buried in Braes of Agnus with his deat in 1912 in Dundee Scotland.
