Margaret Alexander

As it is Valentine's day I 'm uploading this gravestone which was erected by a husband for his wife. The very last act of love he could do for her, even though she was no longer around to appreciate the gesture.

The text reads:

Erected by

William Somerville

in memory of

Margaret Alexander his wife who

died at Gorebridge July 17th 1825

aged 33 years

Also Four of their children who died young
