    • Most histories list Alexander Smith and Margaret Roger (sometimes Margaret Rodger) as the parents of our John Smith. Beside the fact that a John Smith was born to this couple in approximately the correct year and location, I've found no other definitive evidence that these two are my ancestors. There were dozens of John Smith's born in Lanarkshire during this time.

      Of note is that the name Alexander was passed to John's son, though the name Margaret does not appear anywhere is near-subsequent generations.

      While Alexander and Margaret are likely our ancestors, this is not definitive.
