Given the naming pattern for Mark and Catherine (FAIRBAIRN) DOUGLAS' children, Catherine's father might be a Robert FAIRBAIRN.
A possible candidate for Agnes is therefore Agnes NIVISON, married to Robert FAIRBAIRN in Smailholm whose daughter Catherine was baptized in Smailholm 6 Jan 1799 (known other family Margaret 1796 and George 1801) [1]
