Another of the gravestones set into the wall that runs along the Main Street in West Linton. At the top an illustration of palm fronds, an emblem of immortality.The inscription for this one reads:
In Memory of
who died at Greenend Decr 23 1885
and his children
who died March 15 1864 aged 12
who died Augus 4 1878 aged 21
who died April 2 1880 aged 26
who died March 24 1891 aged 65
and Alexander, their son
who died August 5 1891 aged 23
Underneath is the following engraved text:
Yet again we hope to meet them
when the day of life is fled
then in heaven we hope to greet them
where no farewell tears are shed.
This family seems to have suffered considerable tragic losses, no wonder they clung on to this text!
