Inscription

This is from Grace Ralston's 1984 book "Saga of our Kintyre Kin": "There is a crested monument in Kiel Cemetery clearly dedicated to 'Patrick Ralston of Brecklate'. It appears to record that he died in 1795 aged 87; however, in that the stone is so damaged and sunken into the ground we cannot be sure of the numbers."
