Robert M. Stothart was born in Scotland in about 1766 in Dumfries, Midlothian, Scotland ( so we think). He came to America with his brother (Possibly a Twin) named William. They also had a sister named Isabelle Stothart who married a Christopher Tennant. Isabelle and Christopher came to America after being married.

I can find Robert in America as late as 1799, and being married to Elizabeth Paterson on May 25, 1795.

I have only been able to search the Web as that I don't have the resources to make it over to scotland to look him up in parish records.

Hi Matt,

Theres an 'in-progress' website that may help (I'm assuming that you've tried www.familysearch.org with the appropriate spelling variations)...

http://www.freereg.org.uk/cgi/Search.pl   is an offshoot of FreeBMD.

There's a record for Dumfriesshire that might be the right one...

Baptism: 24 Jan 1758 Surname: STODHART Forename: Robert, County: Dumfriesshire, Place: Tynron, Father Surname: None Given

Cheers,
