Alexander Bruce Smith
Going by death records, A.B. Smith would have been born around 1807. He married Mary Ann Simpson in Cruden. They had George Rennie Smith and Alexander B. Smith in 1829 and 1830 respectively in Turriff. I'm keen to know where A.B. Snr was born and who his parents were. I would be grateful for any help. If anyone can find anything about where the Bruce name comes into it that would be great because I still believe that the Bruce in the name tends to indicate that there was a marriage between a Smith male and a Bruce femalem but need to prove it.
