From Jewel and Ian Fyfe's website

Following Catherine Sweet's premature death in 1832, five month's after the birth of George, at age 36, George remarried Margaret Graham in Glasgow on 10 September 1833.

Given the repeated names: Thomas and George, the first born of each will have died in puberty. A further Thomas (Sweet) Fyfe was born to George and his second wife, so both first born George's will have died.
