This afternoon I am presenting an image of a memorial/grave-marker from Glasgow’s Southern Necropolis.

It records John Graham of Rowanlea, Pollockshields who died on March 26th 1887 age 68.

There is also the evidence of high infant mortality as evidence by the deaths of his sons:

Donald Henry on Feb 12th 1861 age 6 months
James Currie on Jan 22nd 1865 age 7 years

Another son, Alexander Macdougal lived to the age of 46 and died on May 5th 1898.

His wife, Anna MacDougal lived to the grand old age of 82 and died on Jan 30th 1901.
