I have followed the discussion and gather this McIntosh family is possibly related to the Chief of MacKintoshs family. I have been trying to get an idea of which DNA line the chiefs family is associated with on the McIntosh yDNA project. http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/mcintosh/results
If someone is interested in following up on this I am willing to pay for a 37 marker yDNA test with Family Tree DNA for a male McIntosh (any spelling)who has some evidence they are related to the chief of MacKintoshs family. Contact me at lochmoigh at xtra.co.nz if you would like more information.
