      BIOGRAPHY: Family came from Aushterless, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in 1837. The grandfather, an elderly man (George), had been engaged in making "heather brew" in Scotland and thought a fortune could be made in Canada because wheat was so cheap, fifty cents a bushel; but when he had set up his still, he found the supply greater than the demand, whiskey being sold at twenty-five cents per gal., so he dropped the business. In the store at Cox's Creek, to the north of the dam, the spring tainted with iron ran through the back part of the store and by its side stood a barrel of whiskey, on tap, and the customers could help themselves to either one. - From "The Early Days of Elmira," by George Klinck

      Parents may be John Mackie and Elizabeth Black, m. 22 July 1753 at parish of Cruden.
