These Roberts appear in various Census and Ancestry entries with additional second names sometimes but I haven't found any with their birth registered with a second christian name. Nevertheless I have come across Robert Gordon McKay, Robert William McKay and Robert James McKay, referring to either one. The first one I think could be the right one is: 1. FamSearch Robert McKay Birth 22 Apr 1862 Place Aberlour, Banffshire, Scotland Father James McKay Mother Isabella Anderson https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYYH-5J5 and the other: 2. Scotlands People MACKAY ROBERT [Parents]JOHN MACKAY/ANN GARDEN Birth 24/7/1863 Bap 6/9/1863 Buckie, St Peter's [right next to Rathven, Banff-shire] There is one Robert married to Eliza Escott (b. Tiverton, Devon Dec 1870), whom I think might have been a Military man. Children were Winifred Vera (1901) b. London; Louisa Gwendoline Loveday (1903) b. Tiverton, and Ivy Irene (1906) b. Tiverton. The other I hypothesised married an Annie McKay, but both locations require sea voyages to marry- not unheard of in my tree): MACKAY ROBERT MCKAY ANNIE 1894 041/ 29; Thurso MACKAY ROBERT MACKAY ANNIE 1896 055/ 4; Rogart The Robert married to Annie is listed in several Censuses as a Slater. The US Death Certificate refers to the Robert whose mother was Isabella Anderson but I don't know why or how Robert went to the USA:Robert James MacKay Death Age 48 Birth Date 22 Apr 1864 Birth Place Scotland Death Date 10 Apr 1913 Death Place Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, USA Father James MacKay Mother Isabella Anderson Certificate Number 44107 My problem is that a Robert McKay is linked to a good DNA Match to me, but both of these guys come from a part of Scotland where I have never had relatives! I have plenty of Andersons (to match Isabella) but they are all from Perthshire or Stirling, never Banff or Inverness. Also, I've never encountered DNA Matches from Pennsylvania with any of my Scots surnames- but had that Robert left all his kids in the UK??
