Hi Amanda,

Here is the 1881 census entry for the Scott family. Also, some additional information that I believe relates to them.

I checked the 1881 census for England and Scotland and couldn’t find any likely entries for David Crosbie. You may want to check either the 1891 or 1901 census to see where he was born. This would give you a starting point for him.

Regards,
Charlene

1881:
Dwelling: Salt Box Brae
Census Place: Penninghame, Wigtown, Scotland

Alexander SCOTT M 24 M Newton Stewart, Wigtown, Scotland
Rel: Head
Occ: General Labourer
Margaret SCOTT M 30 F Newton Stewart, Wigtown, Scotland

Janet G.M. SCOTT 2 F Newton Stewart, Wigtown, Scotland

The following entry appeared in the Wigtown Free Press newspsper index:

………………………………..Entry……………………………………Date of Notice..Page/Column
Janet Grace Morrison Scott Stevenson married
David Anderson Crosbie at Newton Stewart……………………….Dec 22, 1898……3g
Alexander Scott married Maggie Stevenson at Newton Stewart…….Oct 7, 1880…….4h
Janet Morrison Stevenson died at Newton Stewart………………….Nov 29, 1888…...4h *
* think this is Margaret Stevenon Scott’s mother - see below


Since Alexander and Margaret are listed on the 1881 census as born in Newton Stewart, I checked the 1861 census and found the following (ages are off a bit, but that is fairly common with census records):

1851 census http://www.dumgal.gov.uk/services/depts/comres/library/censu...
- Stevenson’s on this census Penninghame Parish – Household: 2/79
- Scott’s – Household: 1/22


From LDS website (Internation Genealogical Index) http://www.familysearch.org/

I think these are the birth entries for Janet Stevenson Crosbie’s parents. To confirm - if you get their marriage registration, it will list their parents.

ALEXANDER SCOTT...Male
Birth: 20 DEC 1858, Penninghame, Wigtown, Scotland
Father: JOHN SCOTT
Mother: JANE CHRISTIAN

MARGARET STEVENSON...Female
Christening: 07 MAY 1848, Penninghame, Wigtown, Scotland
Father: ANDREW STEVENSON
Mother: JANET MORRISON


Pretty sure these census entries are for the mothers of Margaret Stevenson & Alexander Scott.
