I am in the process of dividing Scotland into counties
As I receive new information, I will continue to add new counties.
Please check the Scotland page as well, in case I have missed anything.

George HOGG born c1845 Galashiels, Selkirk married Helen Keddie and had at least three children. George born 1867, Mary B. born c1875 and John born c1877 all in Galashiels.
Drew - My line starts with a
James Hogg born c. 1650 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Three of his four sons, James, Peter, and Thomas migrated to Augusta County, VA around 1745. From there
the family moves to Letcher County, KY and then to Rowan County, KY
Lynne Isenor - in Selkirkshire, the borders, and East Lothian/Midlothian, Scotland
Gary Beckett's Genealogy pages - My Hogg Family is originally from Edinburgh,
and My Ancestor Peter Hogg Emigrated to Virginia in the 1700's
Our GEORGE HOGG and ISABEL GLOVER had a son ALEXANDER b.30 Sep 1789 and Christened 14th Oct . Wt....MURRAYand.....HUME . It says thatGeorge Hogg was BUTLER to the RT.Hon.HENRY DUNDAS of MELVILLE . Before we knew only that George was "Gentleman`s Servant" From Debretts Peerage .He was Rt.Hon.HENRY DUNDAS PC MP for Co Edinburgh 1774-90 and for Edinburgh City 1790-1802. He held seven cabinet posts,was created BARON DUNIRA of Co Perth and Viscount MELVILLE in the peerage of the United Kingdom.Died 1811. May be this is the reason that our ancestor ADAM HOGG (son of George Hogg and Isabel Glover,Brother of Alexander ) was able to get an introduction to the Hon.East India Company and become Brigadier General.
Marilyn Nicholaidis (nee Hogg) - My gfather was Alexander Hogg and born in 1897 (I think). My grandfather married Mary Jane Fraser Gilchrist. They lived in Edinburgh.
Barbara - do you have any info on a James T. Hogg born in Edinburgh, Scotland March 1,1823 and died in Dennison TX May 14, 1890 . thank you
Brian Rough - This is the HOGG family that I am looking for. They appear to have been from Crammond in Midlothian, Scotland, which is on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Amelia Whiteford - I am looking for my grandmother Margaret Duncan McKay Mellis was her maiden name married Alexander Hogg in Edinburgh Scotland 25th Dec, 1917. No trace of her or her husband in Scottish Records, it is thought they may have emigrated. Margaret born 1897 Alexander born 1893.
Richard Nixon - My trail has gone a little cold, I have from the 1901 census in England Ellen Hogg b1875 in Scotland, wife of Samuel Cameron, b1875 also in Scotland. I can't get any further as I have no idea where they were married or any other details of where they were born. Family information places them in Edinburgh, but this may not be reliable. If you can help me place them I can maybe get back another generation.
Marielle Ford - I am researching John HOGG who came to South Africa from Dalkeith, Scotland in 1817 with the MOODIE Settlers. HOGG was a shoemaker in SCT. I have some info on his SA descendants and would like to know more about his ancestors.
Spencer Dixon - I am researching John Hog b. abt 1600 Midlothian, Scotland. Married to Helene Tomsoun b. Abt 1602. They had only one child? John Hog b. abt 1625 Dalkeith, Midlothian, Scotland. Married Jennet Dickson b Abt 1629 Dalkeith, Midlothian, Scotland.
