Okay, here goes...
William DUNCAN b abt 1740 Ruthven (poss s/o Wm DUNCAN m 1736 Janet WISEMAN) m 1764 Margaret WIER b 1740 (d/o George WIER m 1740 Margaret REID).

Their son Alex DUNCAN m 1802 Jane DAVIDSON

Their son 1 James DUNCAN b 1805 m Anne WIER d/o George WIER m 1816 Margaret McDONALD (George m2 1828 Ann PATERSON)
Son 2 Alex DUNCAN b 1811 is living two houses over in the 1851 Belhelvie Census in the home of...

Catherine Duncan INNES b 1765, d/o John DUNCAN m Catherine GRANT, m Alexander INNES b abt 1763 and d 15 Sep 1799.

I figure the WIERs are all related somehow, and that Alex DUNCAN (m Jane DAVIDSON) and James DUNCAN (m Anne WIER) are related, although of different generations. It all seems to connect in Catherine Duncan INNES' home, which leads me to Alex INNES and his origins...
Ruthven, Fordyce, Keith, and Grange are all listed as birth/event places.
Any takers?
