I am looking for info on my GG grandfather Robert Turner: apparently born in Scotland 22 DEC 1842 and died in Saint John 6 MAR 1909. He supposedly immigrated to Canada in 1856.

In 1868, he married Letitia Banks of Sunbury County (1849–1937). She was the daughter of Timothy Saunders Banks and Elizabeth Mary Burpee. Curiously, her father was listed as "Rufus Banks" on her death certificate, which is false. However, there was a "Rufus Turner" born in Sunbury around the same time as Letitia...

I know there is an extensive Turner line from Scotland (see: Holden Turner) that immigrated to Sunbury County, so I am wondering if my Robert Turner is somehow related, even though he was listed as being born in Scotland in all documentation I have come across. As the name is very common (and there isn't even so much as a middle initial on his headstone), I am having trouble connecting him with his ancestors.
