Hello Wally

I am not a member of your clan I am married to a Murray & I was looking in your WebPages & was interested to see the diagram of the cemetery, however there is one missing & that is situated approx. between 18 & 25, although it is a Murray grave there is also a Turnbull. The part of the long inscription which mentions her is as follows

Here lies John Murray late gardener in Tour who died July 15 1749 aged 80 years Also Isabel Turnbull his spouse who died August 17 1746 aged 67 years

The grave is a stone slab laying on the ground & was almost illegible but it has been tidied up I hope you find this of interest
