McPherson/MacPherson family - Philadelphia, PA

I am searching for info on the family of Charles A MacPherson/McPherson & Marion Smith. Charles was a lace maker/weaver. Both were born in Scotland, married in Ayr County in 1898 & emigrated to Philadelphia in Oct 1903 with their sons Hugh & James. Other known children (born in Philadelphia) were James, Marian, Elizabeth, Charles & Margaret. According to a news article about their 50th wedding anniversary, there were 8 children & 10 grandchildren.

Charles' parents were Hugh, also a lace weaver, (died before April 1898) and Marion Auld. Marion's parents were James Smith, mill worker & Elizabeth Wyllis.

Charles had at least one sibling, Thomas, who may have emigrated to US in 1901. A cousin may have been William D Scott also of Philadelphia. Marion may have had a sister Elizabeth. At least one of them had relatives still living in Scotland who visited the US in 1948.

Charles died 6-10-1962. They lived at 2853 N 7th Street Philadephia from 1920 to 1948 (maybe longer).

The son Hugh married Rose Schick in 1921, had one child & died Oct 1978.

Any info would be appreciated.
