Campbell, McCallum, Burns
Mary Campbell born abt 1829 Greenock (Father Dugald Campbell; Mother Mary Thomson) married/handfasted to Donald McCallum. Known children - Duncan McCallum born abt 1850 Luss; Dugald McCallum born abt 1852 Bonhill; possibly Margaret McCallum born ?. Donald was a gamekeeper and probably died between 1852 and 1855 in Bonhill parish. Mary married/handfasted Thomas Burns (printfield foreman at time of Mary's death in Bridgeton in 1878) Known verified children - Agnes born Bonhill 1861; Annie born Bonhill (from census records 1871 Bridgeton) 1865.
The family may have been in Hamilton before 1861 as there are as yet unverified births of James 1957 and John 1860 born Hamilton to Thomas Burns and Mary Campbell (LDS)

In 1871 the family were in Bridgeton:-

Duncan McCallum (head) 21yrs Fancy Dyer born Dunbartonshire Luss.
Dougall (brother) 18yrs Bleacher born Bonhill
Mary (mother) widow 40yrs born Renfrewshire, Greenock
Agnes (sister) 9yrs born Bonhill
Annie (sister) 6yrs born bonhill
John McNicol (boarder) 20yrs ? born Bonhill
Thomas Burns (visitor) 36yrs seaman born England, Manchester

Dugald married Jessie Primose Semple in Bridgeton 1873; Duncan married Mary Torrance (formerly McFaydon)in Bridgeton in 1883; Agnes Burns married William Chanters/Charters Bridgeton 1882

Any information on this family would be great. I am stuck with the McCallum side. Assuming that Duncan is the eldest son Donald father is probably Duncan McCallum. If Margaret is eldest daughter mother is possibly Margaret. Campbell for Greenock seems no birth records/marriage records OPR which fit. Family were possibly dissenters (Free Church; Evangelists; Baptists)
