McAlpine, Orr, Gillespie, Ballantine surnames

I have been working on researching my deceased husband's scottish ancestors the past year. I have encountered all these surnames. I started with a Marion Wood who married Duncan McAlpine in 1811 in Irvine, Ayr, Scotland. I have researched all the McAlpine families in Irvine, Ayr, Scotland area. I have a Duncan McAlpine married to Agnes Francis 6 Nov 1786 and their descendants down 2 generations.
I have a William Orr who marries Margaret McAlpine 19 Mar 1852 in Irvine, Ayr, Scotland and their descendants. Margaret's parents are Thomas McAlpine and Agnes Skelly.
James Gillespie marries Janet Ballantine 18 Jun 1854 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. Their daughter Margaret Gillespie marries Alexander McEwan 19 Jun 1878 in Glasgow.
Are you related to any of these individuals?

Looking for Christina Ballantyne who marries James Baird 1825 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

I am interested in finding the birth and parents of Christina Ballantyne who marries James Baird in 1825 Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland, and then marries William Martin in 1839 Barony Parish, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. I am also interested in information on birth and parents of James Baird and William Martin. My ancestor is the daughter Margaret of James Baird and Christina Ballantine.
