When I get a chance I'll try and take a couple of pictures for you
Linda. As I said, the surface of the 1812 stone is still in very good
condition so I should be able to transcribe the entire inscription.
There are others mentioned on the newer stone but I did not want to
spend any time until you confirmed if I had the ones you were
interested in. I don't recall any other BIRNIE stones beside them
which Alex's information would suggest but I'll look more closely
when I go back.
