Hi - Well I am late in posting. Time restraints.
My Jean Shands can be crosslinked to surnames sands, sand, shand. From what I can determine my Jean was born to Alexander Sand (Shand). a handloom weaver, and Jean Paton Shands Jan 7, 1796. There were also 3 boys - David (Mar 19, 1790), Robert (Oct 23,1798) and William (Jan 1, 1794)
