Who are David BOGIES'S parents - Dysart, Fife, Scotland

Journal by kerbent

David Bogie was the father of Hannah Bogie.
David Bogie and Isable Fyffe
The couple married on 30 Jul 1813 in Dysart, Fife, Scotland,according to the Dysart Old Parish RegisterS both groom and bride were identified as being of this Parish, Dysart. Unfortunately no parents were given for either party.

So now I'm trying to work out who David Bogie's parents were.
The only census that David Bogie appears in the 1841 where he is 50 (his wife was a widow in the 1851 census) which means that he could have been born between 1787 and 1791 as the ages were rounded down to the nearest 5. So he could have been anywhere between 50 and 54 years old and according to the entry in the Church marriage register he came from the parish of Dysart so I assume that he was most likely born there.

Doing a search on the IGI there are three David Bogie's that meet these parameters:-
1.Birth: 25 MAR 1790 , Christening: 28 MAR 1790 St. Andrews And St. Leonards, Fife, Scotland Parents:- DAVID BOGIE & ELIZABETH MCKAY
2. Birth: 15 JAN 1791, Christening: 16 JAN 1791 Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland. Parents: JAMES BOGIE & AGNES ANDERSON
3.Birth: 03 MAY 1792 Leslie, Fife, Scotland Parents: ROBERT BOGGIE & JANNET CURRER
DAvid's occupation was a msaon according to the 1841 census.
Does anyone recongnise these couples and know their families maybe through a process of elimination I can work out who my David Bogies parents are.
Interested to talk to anyone with connections to these families.

My or my those David Bogies are hard to track. My dad and greatgrandfather were David Bogie. The elder was born to James Bogie in Kirkcaldy and they migrated to Canada and then David came to Minnesota. James was a sea captain on the great lakes and died at sea. His wife, my great great grandmother Agnes, is buried in Wisconsin. It is so complicated to unravel..............

Is your David Bogie and/or James the same as mine? Or are they two cifferent families with the same surname?

They are different. I will write what I have discovered about the Scotland Bogie's who are my relatives soon. I'm sure going back far enough there is a connection. I was in contact with a Bogie in Scotland and she sent me a "tree" which included a Friar Bogie back in the 1300's. Neat!
