Ancestral View
According to the 1911 census they had seven children of whom three were already deceased. So far I have details of six children two of whom were deceased by 1911. There is a gap between Alexander 1868 and Elizabeth 1872, where is seems likely there could have been another child, but I cannot find any record.
