In August 2006 the Webmaster has been contact by a lady in Australia who has a box containing many papers relating to JOHN McINTYRE, the 'son of the manse'.
She tells me of one, John McIntyre, who left Monikie in 1872, at the age of 20, to sail to Australia on the Star of Peace. It is hoped that Angus Council Archives department can arrange for the return of this collection for display at the Restenneth Archive Centre.

As at the date below this has failed to materialise.
