Members Of My More (Moir) Family?

From the Moir genealogy and collateral lines, with historical notes (different editions here and here), a  clue to additional descendants of William More/Moir and Margaret Norrie:

George MacLean Moir, clerk, of 14 Roseneath Place, Edinburgh, son of PETER MOIR, of Kincreich Mill, Forfarshire, and Isabella Roberts, grandson of WILLIAM MOIR, farm overseer, of Nether Hayston, Forfarshire, and ( ) NORRIE; b. Dec. 20, 1866, at Kincaldrum Mill, Forfarshire; m. June 6, 1901, Mary MacIntyre, dau. of Peter MacIntyre, of Virginia, U.S.A., and had issue: —

1. Elizabeth Stuart Moir, b. Sept. 3, 1902, at Edinburgh.
2. George Edward Moir, b. Aug. 16, 1904, at Edinburgh.
3. David Roberts Moir, b. Nov. 26, 1906.
4. Isabella Roberts Moir, b. Mar. 3, 1909, at Edinburgh.
5. Andrew Hill Moir, b. Dec. 11, 1910, at Edinburgh.

William and Margaret More had a son Peter who fit the profile of Peter Moir in the Moir genealogy book, according to the 1841 census taken in Glammis - Angus - Hayston (profiled in an earlier blog):
