Confused about fathers name


I hope some one can help, I am trying to confirm the parents of my 2nd Great Grandfather. His name is Alexander Cumming B Feb 1840 in Dundee, Scotland. on his marriage record to Isabella Murchinson McKenzie in 1862 his father is noted as being John Cumming but on his death record in 1916 his father is noted as being James Cumming, his mother was recorded on both records as being Ann Lawson however I have not been able to locate a marriage record for an Ann Lawson to either a John or James Cumming. I use Scotlandspeople for my research, I am also unable to locate a birth record for him with these parents, does anyone have any advise on where else I can look for this.

Thank you
