Although Marion's 1872 birth cert. does indeed show her parents as Peter FAIRBAIRN and Elizabeth maiden surname LITSTER, who supposedly married Oct 1862, Dunbar, the latter two "facts" seem at odds with other data.
Peter FAIRBAIRN and Elizabeth RUNCIMAN married Oct 1859 at Dunbar.
Census data places Marion with her mother Elizabeth.
The clincher for the id however is that in 1922 Marion GOLIGHTLY is returning to Canada to join her husband Joseph and gives her nearest relative in country from whence she came as mother Elizabeth FAIRBAIRN of 11 West Port, Dunbar.
Which is the usual residence given on the 1925 Tranent death cert. of Elizabeth FAIRBAIRN, widow of Peter FAIRBAIRN, fisherman, and daughter of Walter RUNCIMAN & Elizabeth SLIGHT
In addition many ancestry trees show Marion dtr of Peter and Elizabeth as dying at Stenton in 1946.
That death is actually a Marion Edmond FAIRBAIRN nee COWE, married to Thomas FAIRBAIRN, ploughman.
