Laura, on the scotlands people website,I found the deaths of 5 William Harpers between 1861(last census he appears in) and 1871 when Margaret and the children emigrated.They are;

Deaths:

William Harper
died:1862
district:Bridgeton
age:none given

William Harper
died:1862
district:High Church
age:none given

William Harper
died:1862
district:Hamilton
age:none given

William Harper
died:1869
district:Tradeston
age:52

William Harper
died:1871
district:High Church
age:40

If you have the family in the 1861 Scottish census it may narrow down which of these William Harpers would be the man you seek as more than likely he died and Margaret decided to make a fresh start.If I can help more let me know.Hope this helps,Kim
