The I1c Bogue in the Boggs project has a genealogy that takes him back to Scotland as a
Boig/Bog. His website shows earliest ancestor William Bogue ABT 1631 in Berwickshire,
Scotland (is that near Kirkcudbrightshire?). Although they appeared to emigrate directly to
US, they could've had a branch go down to Ireland.
