Dennis MARR of Maine - links to Marr's or Erskine's of Scotland?

Wow! When I go to research this line I get all sorts of answers and possibilities as to his lineage.
Has anyone done extensive research on this line with documented Proof of Dennis > John Marr's lineage back to Scotland?
John Marr and Catherine Surplus are my 7th grt. grandparents. Their son Dennis is my 6th grt. grandfather and his daughter Mary is my 5th grt. grandmother. Not to mention I have other links from the other children of these lines as well.
In other records posted on line at Rootsweb I have seen documented lineages of the name Gyllocher/Gilocher (various spellings) which I believe are the ~possible~ early spellings of the name GILKEY to which my line from the MARR's goes to.
If these ancient Gilocher folks are the original GILKEY's then these families go way back in Scottish history and have Royal connections. While I would love to think I had Royal ancestry, I prefer to have proof over speculation.
That is why I am hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction or at least to someone who has done some work on this Marr line to see just where it leads, if that was possible.
I know many of these old records are lost and sometimes there just isn't any documentation to help propel one along in their research, but if there is any proof of some of these claims, so far I've seen very little in the way of reliable Source materials listed with the lineage lines that are posted online.
Thank you for any info.
