Excerpt from Angus Macleod's "1851 Exiles"

Here lies my dear wife and child They to me, were dear and lovely Their time with me was short but sweet But now they are gone and I am lonely. So reads one of the stones in the Huron Presbyterian Church Cemetery or "Old Lewis Cemetery" as it is sometimes called - the inscription - a sad and lonely tribute from a husband to his dearly departed wife and child. The husband's obvious grief at the untimely death of his young family is reflected in the simple but poignant verse engraved on the tombstone.             read more here
