John Fairbairn and family

Sorry I have been absent for a bit, life sort of got in the way and I had rather a lot of other things going on. But here is a relatively modern stone in the graveyard. The text reads:

in memory of
John Fairbairn
who did at Carpet 16th April 1876
aged 83 years
also his son
who died at Cowden Burn 28th March 1885
aged 37 years
and his wife
Helen Laidlaw
who died at Peebles 17th April 1894
aged 85 years
also their daughter
widow of William Laidlaw
who died at Peebles 14th May 1921
aged 80 years

Jesus said
I am the Resurrection and the life
he that believeth in my though he were
dead yet shall he live.
