William Cairns and family

The text on this richly decorated stone reads:

Here lyes

William Cairns

son to Robert Cairns who

died the XV of

may 1723 years

and of his age


And on the other side of the stone there is more text. It reads as follows:



the memory of

James Stevenson, Roadmaker

who died Nov 9


Isobel Mitchell his spouse

and James Christian and Isobel (??, and educated guess, it could also say Isorit?)

their children also.

And further down:

James Stevenson mason


Margaret Stevenson

Their children are interned


This stone is positioned next to the fallen stone shown here, of James Cairns. I'm not sure how James Stevenson is related to them.
