Princess DOLGORUKAYA and Arthur THEW

I have an Arthur THEW (don't know which of the Thews his parents were) who married Mariya Mikhailovna Princess Dolgorukaya in 1886 in St. Petersburg, Russia, USSR.
Have searched everywhere to find this Princess, and the only thing I could find even remotely resembling her is one of the daughters of a Russian Emperor who wasn't married to her mother. It's not much help, as the daughters aren't named. Ekaterina is the closest I can come to "maybe" her mother.
I'd like to put these two in the right place in my Tree, if anyone can help.

COCHRANE family from Auchterarder, Scotland

My father was Charles COCHRANE, born in Auchterarder 2 December 1910. Came to Australia with his family around 1920 to work in the Moruya quarry, cutting stone for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I have a lot of the family, going back many years, but got stuck when I came across what are possibly cousins, born at the same time. The Scots all called their children the same name, and it makes finding people very difficult.
My grandfather William married Catherine Smith CARR, whose parents were John CARR and Marjorie STORMONT.
I'd like to know if there are any relatives in Auchterarder or surrounds who have information, and would like to get in touch.

Looking for Clive GLOVER of Sydney NSW

Clive Wilson GLOVER (born about 1910) married Trelvia Desma ZIEGELER in c1935 in Sydney NSW Australia. They divorced around 1944, and we believe Clive married Laurie LITCHFIELD in Sydney about that time. We also think Clive died in 1947. However, we can't find anything else about him since the divorce, and wonder if there might have been any children from the second marriage.

Looking for Thomas ROBINSON married Emma WARD in Port Macquarie

According to our records Thomas was born in London in 1843. He came to Australia and married Emma WARD in Port Macquarie NSW on 19th October 1870. He then became a pilot's boatman until he retired, and died in Sydney on 15th July 1909. He was also the lighthouse keeper at Tacking Point, Port Macquarie.

We would like to know about his parents and any siblings. All that is on the certificate we have is his father as James, who is listed as a butcher, and his mother as May (name unknown).
