This family line is listed a C2 in the 1929 Mutch Genealogy, where Alexander's birth year is given as 1803. His parents are given as James + Elspeth Mitchell. It also lists another daughter, Elspeth, who married Alexander May.
I have found this family in the 1841 census where Alexander is listed as an agricultural labourer at Earlseat, Cruden. The entry confirms Elspet as a member of this family aged 5 - with rounding.
I have found Alexander's death registration on Scotland's People, which confirms he was 72 when he died. I also found the death registration for his son Thomas which gave more details of his unusual death.
John C Mutch is descended from son Alexander.
