"In memory of Marion McKelvie, spouse of John Farquhar Jun'r, merchant, Greenock". She died on the 18th of January 1828, and John Farquhar died on the 10th of August 1848. Their only daughter Ann is also commemorated here; she married the merchant James MacKay in March 1822.
Duncan Street Burial Ground
This burial ground, created on land feued in 1816, is adjacent to the earlier Inverkip Street Burial Ground Link but it was, at first, separate from it (see Link for a more detailed history). An original entrance from Duncan St was closed after that street was levelled; an opening to the adjacent Inverkip Street Burial Ground was then created instead. "Renfrewshire MI pre-1855" (vol 1) has all of the inscriptions. The Duncan Street Burial Ground is discussed in the last few pages of LinkExternal link (PDF).
