Mr. McIntosh is a descendant of United Empire Loyalist stock, his father, the late John D. McIntosh, having purchased the 200-acre farm, now operated by him, from the McQueen estate about sixty years ago. Previous to his death, about eleven years ago, at the age of seventy-six years, John D. McIntosh was assessor and collector for the Township of Cornwall for twenty-six years.
Our subject was born on this farm and has always lived there, with the exception of about two years spent in the West engaged in the lumbering, dredging and contracting business.
