born around 1820 according to Grandma Fox

Annie was first child, then Elizabeth. 2 further males and 4 further females

Could this be right? Susan, Mary, Edith roughly fit. Phoebe?

Grandma said that Alexander Stark was a gas man - 1881 census says that Andrew was a gas fitter.

Assuming this is right...

There are only 2 Andrew Starks born in Scotland in 1831+/- 10 years who have a brother Alexander. Both in Fife.

1. Parents William Stark & Elizabeth Rodger. Alexander born 1822 and Andrew born 1830.

2. Parents WIlliam Stark and Margaret Sim. Alexander and Andrew both christened on same day - 3/6/1836.

Grandma Fox said that Alexander was born around 1817 and Andrew around 1820 in Fife or Perth.

The Williams are common but the Rogers and the date strongly suggest the first.
