  General Notes:

The evidence is reasonably strong for this being Isabella's father. He was about Ann McCallum's age in 1828, lived in Banff, was a mason and was dead by 1859. There seem to be no other John Rhinds who come close (there is John Rhind d1826 aged 62 who is mentioned below)

He seems to have been the father of the famous sculptor John Rhind 1828-1892 (his sons were also scupltors of note)
