For years a theory that Robert married to Kate SCOTT was a son of Archibald & Alison (CROSSER) FAIRBAIRN has remained just that, a theory.
Direct male line candidates for Y-dna testing are in short supply (still looking, would love to hear from you if you can help).
Then in Dec 2014, up popped a good atDNA FamilyFinder match triangulated between two descendants of Walter son of Archibald and Alison, and a descendant of William & Catherine (MORGAN) FAIRBAIRN, William being Robert's son.
Looking good.
Feb 2015 added another match into the mix - from a descendant of of William's sister Elizabeth, also triangulated with the descendants of Walter, and with matches to descendants of other sons of Archibald and Alison, also a good match to the descendant of William, along with matches to descendants of the more distant Robert and Agnes (LANDRETH) FAIRBAIRN
