Any Mackintosh experts able to help me with my "brick wall"?
I'm looking for details of my gtgt grandfather, Hector Mackintosh who married Jane Balland ? (not sure if Balland was her second name or surname). It is likely that they emigrated to South Africa - but possibly born in S.Africa.
They had 12 children, 2 being boys: all born in S.Africa. I have the names of 7 of them:
* Emily Alice "Eppie" Mackintosh b.19/01/1867 d.09/07/1953, my great grandmother, married James William Thomas "Jim" Marwick b.1866. They lived in the Richmond area of Natal, South Africa. James was born very shortly after his parents and brother arrived from the Orkney Isles.
*Harriet Mackintosh who married John Marwick, brother of JWT Marwick above.
* Barbie Mackintosh
* Elsie Agnes Mackintosh who married David Humphrey Jones
And 5 other girls.
If you're able to assist me in my search I'd be most grateful.
