There is no mention , at this address, of Alexander Ballantyne who is on the headstone.  I think he is the Alexander who is a shepherd in the house of Thomas McKay at Knowehead, Lintrathen, Forfar.  There is also an Allen Ballentyne there, and on the headstone is mentioned a son, Peter John Allan Ballentyne.  There is also a link with Newtyle
