I am researching my wife's SHAND family in Aberdeenshire and Banff and I am stuck. I have traced certificates and register entries back to Charles SHAND about 1700. Can someone please help?

The tree so far:

Charles SHAND born about 1700? I believe he died 12 January 1739 at Gellyhill, Macduff and is buried in Banff churchyard - I have traced the MI.

Charles married about 1722? Barbara MILNE (born about 1705? Scatterly, King Edward).

I have traced their children; Helen, Christian, Alexander, James, John, Margaret.

I believe Charles was the son of Alexander SHAND born about 1675? Gellyhill, Macduff? I cannot trace Alexander's wife. I believe they had another son Alexander born about 1708?

I believe that Alexander SHAND born about 1675?'s father was William SHAND born about 1650 Auchmedden? I cannot trace William's wife. I believe they had another son James SHAND born about 1679 Aberdour, Banffshire?

Any help will be appreciated.
