Also--although all my knowledge is from tertiary sources such as this bulletin board and I am scarsely an expert--your line doesn't match that on the website I cited last time.
1. Alexander 2. Thomas, who acquired Menstrie 3. Andrew = Catherine Graham 4. Andrew = Eliz. Douglas 5. Andrew = ?? (perhaps I inserted an extra Andrew, misunderstanding your info) 6. Alexander = Eliz. Forbes 7. Alexander = Marion Contee 8. William, 1st Earl = Janet Erskine 9. John = Graham --> VA 10.John =?? --> VA
The other site has:
1. Alexander, who obtained Menstrie 2. Thomas 3. Andrew = Catherine Graham 4. Alexander = Elizabeth Douglas 5. Andrew = Elizabeth Forbes 6. Alexander = Marion Couttie (Conttie?) 7. William, the 1st Earl = Janet Erskine 8. John = Elizabeth Graham (rather than Agnes)
The alternation of Andrews and Alexanders seems more in keeping with Scottish naming practices than the doubling on your list, but I don't know which--if either--is accurate.Also, is John's Graham an Elizabeth or an Agnes?
And is Rev. James descended from any of these people (since he's my guy, anyway!)?
