Mrs Mack's House

This picture, taken sometime towards the end of the 19th century is of Mrs Mack's the house was next to her sawmill. In the centre of the picture is the bridge at Ellemford, so the picture is post 1860 and behind it Todlea, although at this point it had only one story, not the two that it has now. The site of this is in the garden of what is now Woodman's Cottage, which was built right at the end of the century. The picture below from a slightly different angle shows the hills behind, without the fir trees as they have today. Click both pictures to enlarge.

I think Mrs Mack may be one of my ancestors. Are any of her family still living in the area?
