So far I can't find Mary's maiden name. I can't find baptisms for the children.

This does not help. EDIT: I take that back.

Thanks Keith.

Something is not right. Abbotshall is a very long way from St Andrews.

Thanks Keith.

Looks to be two families. I have to be sure I'm tracing the right one.

One tree has this one who married Joseph Ogilvie.

Ok. Then we don't know if that family of Mary Paton's is the right one.

Marriage 09/06/1851 OGILVIE JOSEPH - ISABELLA HENDERSON/FR594 429/ 30 150 Ferry Port On Craig

I wonder if it's worth getting that image.

At best you might find: date(s) of the proclamation of intended marriage and/or date of marriage, names of bride and groom and their parish of residence, sometimes the occupation of the groom and occasionally the name of the bride's father.

At worst you should find the following: the names of the bride and groom ...

An example:

February 1841
28th John McLuckie and Ann Watson both of this parish 3 days
 
A tree on fmp has Isabella's parents as William Henderson and Emily Machie. William baptised 26 April 1801 to William Henderson and Elizabeth Cunning in Ferry Port on Craig. William and Elizabeth married 15 February 1800. Both events on SP.

This looks like Isabella in 1851

West Ferry, Dundee Road, Dundee
Duncan Ogilvie 38 Minister of United Presbyterian Church Keith, Banffshire
Jane Ogilvie wife 37 Fordyce Banffshire
Margaret Ogilvie dau 2 Dundee
John P Ogilvie son 1 Dundee
Isabella Henderson 20 House Servant Markinch Fife
 
One of the marriage entries for Joseph Ogilvie and Isabella Henderson has Joseph's occupstion as Seaman which may explain why he's not on the Censuses. I don't think the previous post #19 is the right Joseph.
