Descendants of Margaret Malcolm b Birse, Scotland in 1844

Surnames: Malcolm, Gibbs, Linsing, Stokes
Am looking for descendants of Margaret Malcolm born 1844 Birse, Aberdeenshire, Scotland and Robert Malcolm Gibbs born in 1833 in same place. Both persons emigrated to Dunedin, New Zealand around 1864 where they had a child by the name of Robenia Gibbs born 1865 (who later married a John Linsing in 1894). They then moved to Victoria, Australia in about 1866 where they had a further 7 children named David b 1867, Susan Margaret b 1871, Archibald b 1872, Margaret b 1873, Agnes b 1875 (who later married an Archibald Stokes in 1903 in Victoria), Ann White Gibbs b 1876 (who later married a Thomas John Shaw) and John 1879. All the children were born in the Maffra/Sale area of Victoria. I believe some of the living relatives have the surnames Stokes, Linsing and Gibbs.

My great grandfather, Robert John Malcolm born 1853 in Old Macher, Aberdeenshire was the younger brother of Margaret Malcolm.

There appears to be an old family tree on that contains the same names and more descendants, however it is no longer active and I cannot contact any person associated with it.

If anyone out there knows of any living relatives or are loosely connected to any of these families any contact would be greatly appreciated.

There are a fair number of Family Trees with either Margaret Malcolm of Birse or others on them. I will list some: Australian Vance Tree...Finding the Clempsons Tree...Knoll-Jackell Tree...Southall/Birss Tree...Leach tree... Thorn tree...Duvall tree, etc... I just wondered if you knew about them and had already seen them,
