Hi William,
Thanks for getting in touch. I am especially interested in the family of OGGs who were at Cambus O'May as below. One of my Gordons 'Camlet Joseph' and his wife were living with this family at Cambus o'May Inn in 1841. Their daughter, Jane Gordon had a 'natural' son with George Ogg of Little Kinord in June 1820 named Peter OGG.

I am also interested in the Elizabeth Ogg who married Nathaniel Gordon in Lumphannan in November of 1766. Her sister Helen Ogg (1740-1815) married George Cromar of Greencoats.

I have Ogg extracts from the Glenmuick & Aboyne OPR's aswell as photos of the Aboyne and Kirktown of Aboyne tombstones.

The Oggs around Kincardine O'Neil also interest me as the son of Nathaniel Gordon was Alexander Gordon and he became Innkeeper at Kincardine o'Neil. His mother was Elizabeth Ogg (as above)

I have lots I can pass on if you wish. What I have not done is sorted out the information I have gathered into family groups and I had hoped someone 'out there' might guide me. Can you help?

Below is the info on the CAMBUS O'MAY OGGS:

1798 March 24 (hard to read): Jas OGG and Margt MASON Old Kinord – Elspet
