He is a car inspector. In 1894 he is not listed in Troy, but William H. MACINTOSH, car inspector is listed in the Albany City Directory at 148 S. Pearl Street. 1896-1911 in the Albany City Directory at 148 S. Pearl Street are: Marcia, widow of William H. MACINTOSH, Jessie MACINTOSH, and John L. MACINTOSH. Marcia is Marcia LASHER. In the 1860 census records for Albany County in Lucinda Coopers household there is a William MCINTOSH age 23, laborer and a Temperance MCINTOSH age 59. Don' know if this is my William or not.

The other migrated to Albany from which arose our stock, the progenitor of many celebrated financiers not least among which is D. O. Mills, the California millionaire." by Warren H.
