Webmaster's notes:
Details of son John come from his death register entry in GRO which was found thanks to David Cann who is descended from him.
David has since added the following information:

1) Their Son John Mutch Married Christina Murchar. They had a Daughter ' Barbara Sherridan Mutch' Born in Peterhead 1873, but hailed from Buchan. Barbara was an active member of the Scottish Episcopalian Church. Barbara Married an 'Alexander Gray Thorpe' in Glasgow in 1897. Barbara died in Glasgow in 1929 aged 56. Alexander was Born Glasgow in 1872 and Died in Glasgow in 1948. Both are burried at 'Riddrie Cemetery' in Glasgow. They lived at 6 Rogart Street, Glasgow. 'Sandy', as Alexander was known, worked at Templeton's carpet factory. He was a Freemason.
