It was some info passed down thru the Hogg family and I had dates from 1703 to 1720 for my greats grandfather Peter. I do have quite a bit of info on him and George Washington

The first thing to recognise is that the records you are looking for may not have survived.
The only place to find reliable information online is www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk (SP). You need to register, and then you can look at the index free of charge. To view original images you need to buy credits.
According to the SP index James Hog (one 'g') and Janet Blackburn had 8 children.
You may find that the original baptism records contain information about witnesses, who may provide clues to the rest of the family.
What is your source for the birth and death dates of James Hog and Janet Blackburn?
Never believe anything you find online unless it's an image of an original document. In particular do not trust online trees. They can be useful as a pointer to look for information, but they are not reliable. You have to check the source of every bit of information.
