According to the further details contained in the death certificate, plus census details, Annie Henderson was born circa 1816/21 in Baldernock Parish, to James Henderson, a coachman, and Elizabeth Haldane, and their marriage, on 29 January 1813 is recorded in the Campsie parish register. There are also the births of two of their other daughters recorded in the Campsie register, i.e. Janet, 5 September 1813 and Mary, 23 Febuary 1815, but unfortunately, as of yet, no record of Annie's birth/baptism has been found.

James Henderson, died sometime prior to , as on 13 August 1834, Elizabeth Haldane married Hamilton Baillie, a porter in a callico printing office. For the census of 1851 Elizabeth and Hamilton were living at 51 South Coburg Street, Glasgow.

In 1861 Hamilton Baillie was listed in the Valuation Rolls at 22 William Street, Milton, Glasgow. It is there he and Elizabeth is recorded for the census of that year.

I believe that Hamilton Baillie died the year after this census in 1862, at Milton, Glasgow, (probably 22 William Street).

For the census of 1871 Elizabeth was living with her daughter Janet Henderson, who had married a William Strang on 29th November 1846 in Barony, Glasgow. (For further details of Elizabeth's daughter Janet Henderson - see Appendix D.)

Elizabeth died the year after this census on 19 Sept 1872, aged 81, at West College Street, Glasgow, and her death certificate confirms that her first husband WAS James Henderson. Her death was registered her daughter, Janet.

According to her age given in her death certificate and the 1861 census, Elizabeth Haldane was born circa 1789/1791, and the certificate gives her parents names as Robert Haldane, a limekiln worker, and Janet Downie. As of yet this is unconfirmed but there are deaths in the parish records of Campsie for "May 20 1822 - Haldane, Robert, Langshott, died of Inflammation, Mar'd and aged 73 years" and "November 30 1827 - Downie, Janet, Balgrochan; Relict of Robert Haldane, died aged 79 years". I would deem it safe to assume that this was Robert Haldane and Janet Downie, the parents of Elizabeth Haldane, making them born circa 1749 and 1748, respectively.
