James Sanderson and family

Another impressive obelisk in the graveyard which has the following text;

In memory of

died 14th May 1868
Also of
William his son
born 9th January 1835
died 22nd July 1835
Mary Sanderson
wife of Wm Shanks
died 12th Feb 1868
aged 27
buried in Paisly
Grace Sanderson
wife of
John Gibson died
1st August 1869 aged 39
buried in Pittenmain
Margaret Sanderson
wife of
Frederick Heggie
died 11th July aged 36
buried at Kirkcaldy
Mary Wyper wife of
James Sanderson who
died at Trinity 16th August

It looks like somehow the year of death for Margaret SAnderson was overlooked in the engraving. Probably an oversight by the stonemason who did the work.
