John French

As you can see this stone is set against the wall of the graveyard. The inscriptions reads:


by John French, shepherd Baddinsgill

in memory of

Sarah Graham

his wife who died 5th August 1867 (?)

aged 54 years

the above

John French

died 16th August 1889

aged 78 years

Oh call it not death: 'tis a holy sleep

the precious dust the Lord doth keep

he shall wake again, and how satisfied

with the likeness of him who for Him died.
