DNA

A descendant, Bob(F-34), of James and Agnes (LINDSAY) FAIRBAIRN is an excellent yDNA match (67/67) to descendants of John and Magdalen (BO) FAIRBAIRN, but where James "fits" into that tree is completely unknown.
As Alexander is a family name for Bob's line, perhaps there's a link with one of the Alexanders contemporary with the John of Stewart's line, and possibly there is a connection to one of the early Alexanders in Mellerstain, Earlston?
The Alexander married to Betsy NEWTON however is spoken for, as is his son James (married Agnes BRACK 1783 at Lauder).
Exploration of a possible AITCHISON link may bear some fruit for a connection between Bob's line and that of another excellent match, F-42.[4]
