John Smith Mackay

I have been struggling to find a birth or death entry for John Smith Mackay born circa1893 either in Scotland or England. We have marriages for 1925 (Scotland), and 1928 (England) and offspring for both marriages. We have also done DNA testing which whilst it has revealed a number of distant relations, nothing more than that. Any suggestions for unravelling this mystery would be appreciated.
