Hi Paula,

Just trying to make sense of this so do correct me if I am are looking for your Great Grandfather's parents.

Grandfather ........ Colin Tait Campbell
His father i.e. Great Grandfather ......James Campbell
His father i.e. Great Great Grandfather .....John Campbell

Please note different spelling on Scotlandspeople..........

John Campbell married Margaret Aitken Tait 1881 not
John Campbell married Margaret Aitkin Tait 1881

This thread is closed now so you would be better to re-post this on trying to find or records.

There are 75 John Campbell births in Scotland 1850-1852
