Family Graves in Kilsyth, Scotland

I found all these graves just inside the front gate. I didn't have time to look through the rest of the cemetery. I really just started clicking photo's of headstones and came home and looked and identified them after the trip. I want to take a full day next time I go. I can't imagine how many I could have found if there had been more time. With Mom, Sarah, and Elizabeth we tired quickly and still had to drive back to the Farm. It was a fun day needless to say. 

Mom's grandparents grave John Duff/Anna Horn Barr. She never got to meet them but they always remembered her at Christmas with a box from Scotland.
