"Barbara, fourth daughter of Robert Scott, was born 14th May 1742. She married Mr. Curie, farmer, Yetbyre, Roxburghshire, and died without issue on the 4th January 1826, aged eighty-four.
Respecting her, Sir Walter Scott wrote to his sister-in-law, Mrs. Thomas Scott: "Poor Aunt Curie died like a Roman, or rather like one of the Sandyknowe bairns, the most stoical race I ever knew. She turned every one out of the room, and drew her last breath alone."
Her remains were interred in the Abbey of Kelso."
