Note
Note: The David Mercer who married Margret Baird descends from either - David Mercer and Margret Paterson (see http://www.mercermillions.info/trees/family.php?famid=F1&ged=David%20Mercer) or Andrew Mercer and Elizabeth Adamson (see http://www.mercermillions.info/trees/family.php?famid=F1&ged=Andrew%20Mercer). The former is used on this site. It is much more likely because the baptismal record for his son John states: "John, son lawful to David Mercer, younger, and Margaret Baird, his spouse, was baptised before the congregation." The term "younger" suggests David's father was also named David. (For John's details, see http://www.mercermillions.info/trees/individual.php?pid=I9&ged=David%20Mercer) In addition, an examination of the names of the children shows that they conform very nicely to the "Scottish Naming Pattern (see http://www.mercermillions.info/main/scottish_naming_pattern.htm)."
