      Most birth records linked from children at FamilyTree - https://familysearch.org/tree/#view=ancestor&person=LWMQ-5PH

      There are birth records for three sons named Alexander to this Alexander Smith and Margaret Roger. FamilyTree records for the multiple Alexanders have over time been erroneously combined into a single record.

      Alexander #1 was born 18 April 1773 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTF5-6PP

      Alexander #2 was born 28 November 1777 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTFR-V2G

      Alexander #3 was born 03 May 1785 - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTFR-RRS

      It's possible that the first two sons died at an early age and the subsequent son was named the same. One difficulty with this theory is that if the last Alexander was born in 1785, he would have been only 17 when married and when first child Jean was born. Any other details or explanation would be greatly valued.
    • Most records list this Alexander's father as being Alexander Smith (record at https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XYH8-V21 ). It is very difficult to verify this.

      If this is correct, then this Alexander, Jr. was barely 16 when married and only 17 when first child William was born. This casts some doubt on the veracity of this relationship.
