Clever Windsor Physician died at Earltown

Is there anyone who is related to Dr. John St. Clair MacKay and his wife Elsie who was known as Jessie or Jess? The subject line is how he was described in his obituary written up in the HANTS JOURNAL on 13 Aug 1924.

I would like to find a direct descendant of theirs to pass on a wonderful document that has come into my possession. I am not connected to this family in any way but my curiousity has got the best of me and I want to see this document pass into the correct hands. It was found beneath the floorboards of a house in Windsor where Dr. Mackay once lived before his marriage to Jessie.It is a handwritten letter to her future husband. I am going to be in Nova Scotia this summer and would love to be able to deliver this treasure in person. Hopefully there are descendants still living in the area.

I have found some information on Ancestry and Family Search about John St. Clair MacKay but nothing much on Elsie/Jessie.

The couple married September 9, 1903 and they had two known children:

Daughter Pauline born in 1904, who was at the time of her Father's death (1924) unmarried and was training as a nurse in Bellevue Hospital in New York and a son Peter St.Clair MacKay who was born abt. 1910. Ideally it would be any direct descendant of these two that I would like to get in touch with.

What I know about John, whom she called "Jack" is that he was a respected Doctor, the son of John and Jane MacKay of Earltown, N.S. He was one of 12 children: Here are his parents and siblings:
