The above family is that of Matthew Halliday and Janet Johnstone, who married 31 Dec 1856 in Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland.
John Halliday was born 24 Dec 1865 at Crofthead Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland. The local co-operative society in Fauldhouse was called Crofthead Co-op. It served Fauldhouse and Stoneyburn at least, but Whitburn would undoubtedly have part of its area of marketing.
West Lothian would have been called Linlithgowshire at tis time, but since the modern records and maps call the area West Lothian, the IGI reflects the trend.
Data from familysearch.org names the following children.

Thomas Halliday: b. 18 Jan 1856, Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland.
Elizabeth Walker Halliday: b. 4 Feb 1858, Crofthead, Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland.
Margaret Weir Halliday: b. 6 Nov 1859, Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland.

Initial search found Mary Clellend Currie Halliday: b. 23 Aug 1862, Fauldhouse, West Lothian, Scotland. One record dates her birth at 25 Aug 1862 in Whitburn, West Lothuian, Scortland. Both could be absolutely correct as modern Fauldhouse is in Whitburn Parish in 1881 and the registrar for the area was in Whitburn. 23rd has three reports, 25th has one. Parents are -
Joseph Currie Halliday and Elizabeth Clelland Muir. They married 4 mar 1862 in Cambusnethan, Lanark, Scotland.
Igi suggests Joseph Currie halliday was born in Newcastle, England in 1835. He died 10 Apr 1900and was buried 12 April 1900 in Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland. His parents are Robert Halliday and Elizabeth Jane Currie.

Igi search found the following.
Thomas Scott and Margaret Halliday married 10 Sep 1855, Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland.
Unable to prove a birth for Margaret Halliday, it becomes difficult to identify which Isabella married into the Halliday famly.

There are no births or marriages on the IGI which would prove to be tied to this family. scotlandspeople.gov.uk is suggested.

John Halliday b. abt 1927 Fauldhouse, West Lothian marrioed Matty Mccamley and raised a family in Fauldhouse.
Last known address, area of residence in Fauldhouse was in and around Park View, Fauldhouse in the 1980s.

It is likely hat the McCamleys above are the same family, one or two generations earlier than Matty.
