John Raeburn was born on 24 Feb 1848 at Humbie and Fala Free Church, Humbie, East Lothian, Scotland ,
Baptism: 27 March 1848.1
He was the son of John Raeburn and Elizabeth Wilson.
This John may actually be Robert of whom I found no entry on the FamilySearch site.
Adam Spence has done quite a bit of work on this family, and has Robert in the census giving birth around 1848/49.
Adam is following up the theory that John and Robert are the same person but recorded incorrectly.2
