The key is getting a known Stirling of Keir descendant DNA to compare with Edward's DNA. It will be dilute, depending on how far back that the branch occurred. I might be a descendant (GEDmatch WW7580824) of Edward's great-grandfather (please let me know if you do run a comparison, the parameters may have to be dropped to 6 cM in GEDMatch). If you can get Y-DNA of Edward then people at  https://www.clanstirling.org/ can test for a match with their Y-DNA. This would be the best scenario. Bret
