She spent, her childhood days at Carpendeit and attended the old Carpendeit State school. As a young woman she went to live at Stoneyford, and it was there that she married Mr. D. F. Mclntyre. They purchased "Woolgai," Stoneyford, and re- sided there until the outbreak of the 1914 War. Mr. Mclntyre, who was a Boer war veteran, was amongst the first in the district to enlist. Mrs. Mclntyre went, with her two children, to Pirron Yallock to live, and upon Mr. Mclntyre's return from the war they re- moved to Albert Park where Mrs Mclntyre has resided ever since. Her husband died 22 years ago. There is one daughter, Mrs. C. Mclnnes, Swan street, Rich- mond, and one son, Mr. Alan Mclntyre, Finlay street, Albert Park. There are four grand children.
