Marion Ritchie and the Renwick family

The bottom of this gravestone can no longer be deciphered and I'm indebted once again to Sheila A. Scott's book Peeblesshire Monumental Inscriptions-pre 1855 for the details of the last person mentioned. Here is the full text from the top:

John and Archibald Renwick
in memory of
Marion Ritchie, their Mother
who died 13th January 1845
aged 62 years
William Renwick their brother
who died 1826 aged 6
Thomas Renwick
died 1863 aged 85.

I strongly suspect Thomas Renwick was their father and the husband of Marion although I don't know for sure as moss has covered the actual inscription at the bottom.
