Peter Smith married to Margaret Cocker, dates unknown with three children born in Tough, Aberdeenshire: Thomas (1767), William (1771) and John (1774). Autosomal testing has confirmed my descent from William’s grandson Charles Smith born in Tough in 1849 and Charles’ mother Elizabeth Coutts born in Leochel-Cushnie in 1812.
I have tested at y-67 with no close results although there is a general confirmation of ancestry in northern Scotland.
I am hoping to convince my father’s 3rd cousin to take a y-DNA test as well. That should confirm our shared descent from William’s son (Charles’ father) George Smith born in Leochel-Cushnie in 1804. I would like to discover a more distant cousin (4th to my father or 5th to me) who could link me to William or a descendant of John who could link me to Peter.
