Family of David Cairncross, born c.1785 in Lochee, married Elspeth Peter.

Acknowledgments: The details for this family tree were kindly supplied by Andrew Cairncross, via email, in Oct 2010. Members of this family appear in the book, “CAIRNCROSS – History of a Scottish Family”, chapter VII, page 39. David appears right near the end. Here is a link to this family in the book. Then in November 2018, I discovered that this tree and F-T-43 contain details that are the same. So, I have now combined both these trees into this tree. F-T-43 began with John Macrae Tod Cairncross.
