He had a son called john alexander paterson born 1879 at Goolwa - Robe south australia.

John alexander says he married elizabeth watson on the marriage cert. - Or Mary Lynch keeps popping up?

Isobel,  I think this may be the birth in question - it was in 1876 (not 1879)

Digger - South Australian Births 1842-1906 (c) SAGHS  - it states her that his father was Alack (not John)

Given Names: John Alack
Date: 1876-02-22
Sex: Male
Father: Alack PATERSON
Mother: Mary Ann LYNCH
Birth Place/Residence: Robe
District Code: Rob
Book: 163
Page: 45

do you want me to check for the parents marriage?

didn't this son John Alexander PATERSON end up in Western Australia - this lookup is very familiar and I am sure I have done it before for a family member
