Andrew Clark and family

Sometimes the modern looking stones can prove just as hard to read as the older ones. And for them I am left to decipher them by myself as Sheila A. Scott's book Peeblesshire Monumental Inscriptions restricts itself to pre 1855 inscriptions. Sometimes she seems to incorporate newer ones too but not this one. Here is the text to the best of my knowledge:

Erected by
Andrew Clark
in loving memory of
Barbara Lockin
his wife who died 3 (or 5) March 1907
aged 55 (or 6) years
the above Andrew Clark
died at Glenochar Elvanfoot
24th Decr 1916 (?) aged 71 years
also their children
John & William
who both died in infancy
also of
their beloved daughter who died 12 Nov
1912 aged 32 years
