Notes from "Exhibiton Illustrative of Old Glasgow 1894" (on iPad Kindle)
John Murdoch was Provost of Glasgow 1746,7,50,51,58,59. His son in law is Andrew Cochrane

"Exhibiton Illustrative of Old Glasgow 1894" John was a co-founder of the Glasgow Arms Bank in 1750

This is all coincidental and not proof in itself, but this may establish that Elizabeth's father was taking part in City of Glasgow business at the time of the Rebellion.
