UKNIWM Not Listed

In Glasgow Cathedral OS Map Ref NS 590 650

Are these men step-brothers?

Both plaques list them as being Great-Grandsons of James Mackenzie of Craigpark and their mother as Alice Mackenzie, but obviously different fathers.

James Mackenzie of Craigpark was Lord Provost of Glasgow from 1806 - 1808.

I have created separate threads for each man under their own name, but have included the additional on each of them.
