Andrew Muir and Ann Blair, Kirkcudbright.

Gravestone 818 at St Cuthbert’s Churchyard Kirkcudbright relates to the family of Andrew Muir, late provost of the town, and his wife Ann Blair. The transcription recorded in the book produced by Allison Mitchell records that Ann Blair was interred on 27th December 1797, aged 70 years. Her death notice is recorded in the Monthly Register in the Edinburgh Magazine as occurring on the 24th December 1797. The inscription also records the death of their son Freeland Muir with the date/place of his death illegible. The entry in the magazine states he died in St Vincent’s June 1797.
