1814. Erected by David Watson, Merchant, Tailor in Dundee, in memory of his father who died 4th May 1807, aged 46 years; and three brothers and three sisters who are all interred here. And also his son Henry who died the 3rd May 1817, aged one years.
What is wretched man, Jehovah ?
Earthly man of woman born;
Few of days and full of sorrow,
floating as the dew of morn.
Vain are all his hopes and wishes,
As a dream he glides away;
Death at once his beauty crushes,
And returns unto the clay.
