Biographical data
Name: Macfie, John  
Born: 9 Oct. 1826
Died: 6 July 1896
 
Notes:
John Macfie was an East of Scotland player, not to be confused with Dr. Johnstone Macfie, a West of Scotland player. (Thanks to Alan McGowan for clarifying this distinction.) McGowan has sent me official birth and death records, and an obituary from the Dundee Advertiser of 8 Jul. 1896.
