"In memory of the Rev.
Alexander Calderhead
was born near Glasgow Scotland
August 11, 175(?)

Aged 60 Years 8 Months"
(However, by my calculations using the Aug & Jan dates on the replacement marker he was only 59 yrs etc b/c he had NOT yet had his birthday in 1812 when he died...so IMO either the "Aged" time is incorrect [doubtful b/c it reads clearly on orig marker] or his B&D yrs are incorrect on the replacement marker [can't read the last #'s on orig maker] but most of the references that I've found so far have the 1752 & 1812 dates but I don't know what sources those references used as their source AND one source, "A manual of the United Presbyterian Church of North America", has his B&D dates as 1750-1813 but that doesn't match the "Aged" on the orig marker either.)
