Born at Maghera, Londonderry, Ireland 3 December 1849, died at Struan House 17 December 1904. In religious belief he died as he lived, and without fear

Further information kindly provided by June Haggett:
There is another burial plot near Struan House, with much earlier burials than those in the family plot. This plot is south of Struan House, on the side of the old road. It is thought that these graves were of workers on the Estate.
One grave that most interested me was that of E.B.N.McIntyre (known as Norman) and his wife Mary.
The headstone is very weathered and difficult to read, but with other information I had, was able to work it out.
MARY McDONALD 9 April 186?
E.B.N.McINTYRE (no date given)
The McIntyre family came from the Isle of Mull, and arrived in Portland, Vic, 30-11-1853. Norman became a shepherd for the Robertson family at Struan. His son Peter married Ruth Haggett, which is why I have an interest in the family. Norman McIntyre died 02-05-1880.
