Named on the Strathspey War Memorial in Grantown on Spey

on the Boat of Garten and District War Memorial

PEARSON D. CAMERON HIGHLANDERS PRIVATE 5TH CAMERONS

and on the Dulnain Bridge War Memorial

PEARSON D. CAMERON HIGHLANDERS

The only D PEARSON, Cameron Highlanders listed by CWGC is

PRIVATE
DAVID PEARSON
Age 19 years old
Service Number: 200817
Cameron Highlanders (4403). 1st Bn.
Died 03 September 1916
THIEPVAL MEMORIAL
Son of the late Robert and Helen Pearson, of 37, Duke St., Coldstream, Berwickshire.

He seems to be this man named on the Coldstream War Memorial

PEARSON, DAVID. Pte. CAMn.H.
David Pearson age 19 Private (200817) 1st Battalion, Cameron Highlanders.
In 1901 David, aged 4, born Coldstream, seems to have been placed in the Orphanage at Aberlour in Banffshire. He enlisted as Private (4403) in the 1/4th Cameron Highlanders at Kingussie in Inverness-shire and was transferred to the 1st Battalion in the summer of 1916.
(Source: SDGW, Medal Roll/Card and Army Registers of Soldiers effects)
Born 1896 in Coldstream as David Stirling Pearson. (Source: SNWM and GROS Birth Register)
Son of the late Helen (Stirling) Pearson (died 1896) and of Robert Pearson of 37 Duke Street, Coldstream. (Source: CWGC)
Missing in Action 3 September 1916.
Commonwealth War Grave Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, France.

I assume that he was placed in an orphanage due to the death of his mother and remained in the Strathspey area but can anyone confirm any part of this theory please?
