Seoul Special City, South Korea

(First Western burial in this cemetery.)

English physician and first appointed medical missionary to Korea by the Presbyterian Church USA.

Son of Rev. E. S. Heron.

Came to Korea in 1885. In the summer of 1890, he was treating the sick suffering from epidemic dysentery and himself became infected.

(The note on the added plaque is inaccurate, as James McDowell Gale was the grandson of Harriet's second husband, not Dr. Heron.)
