Birth date of Robert Forbes of Ludquharn 1st

I adopted this orphan profile because of the Forbes connection.  I believe based on the sources cited especially  Kittybrewster.com - Table D. that the correct birth date is 1617 and the death date should be 1655.  

However the marriage to Margaret Lindsay is a problem as the sources conflict.  House of Forbes page 325 gives her as his wife.  Kittybrewster gives  Lady Marjorie Carnegie.

Can someone suggest other sources that could be used to resolve the conflict or which source should take precedence?
