This stone was erected in memory of Patrick Brown and Isabella Miller, late of
Gallowhill, by their youngest son, David Brown, now a Master in the Royal Navy.
Tho' boisterous blasts and worldly fears,
Have tost me to and fro,
Yet, by the order of God's decree,
I harbour here below;
Where now I ride at anchor safe,
With many of our fleet;
Expecting one day to set sail,
Our Admiral, Christ, to meet.
1839. Revised by James Cocks in memory of his son James, who died 23rd February 1837 aged 7 years and 8 months.
