The Muir family gravestones 1

Some of the gravestones in West Linton graveyard are grouped together and that is usually because they concern members of the same family, such as the Muir one, who are the subject of this post and the next few.

This is the oldest Muir gravestone, located on the far right of the group of 3 shown in the top picture.

The text reads:

on the 25th May 1841, aged 23 years


Elizabeth Forrest, his wife

who died 19th Nov. 1850 aged 59 years
Also to the memory of the above

James Muir who died at Robinsland

13th May 1868 aged 69 years

Elizabeth Muir

their daughter who died at Earnslaw

Berwickshire, 1st Feb. 1896, aged 75 years
