I am a descendent of John and Jean (Watson) Affleck’s son Robert Affleck.
There is a burial record for John in the Drumelzier records indicating that he was buried 30 June 1809 and died aged “about 66 years,” which puts his birth around 1743.
The best candidate that I have found for this John is the one that was christened at Drumelzier 03 April 1743, a son of “Robert Fleck.”Robert Fleck married Lilias Johnston 23 Jun 1727 in Drumelzier, and she died aged “about 44 years” andwas buried 29 January 1746.
This John “Fleck” seems to fit quite nicely, especially since John’s first daughter was named Lilias.
In the Drumelzier records, there are no “Afflecks” before around 1770, and there are no “Flecks” after the same time.
