This was a graveyard in County Louth where Presbyterians from nearby were buried. The versions contributed by Mr. P. Crossle, and published in the Journal of the Association for the Preservation of Memorials of the Dead, Vol. VIII. no. 4 (1911) have been included with Noel Ross’s transcriptions when the two versions differed (probably because of further erosion of the stones that occurred between the first and last transcriptions). I did a few small copy edits whenever other research filled in the blanks.

NOTE: The engraver made an error. Robert died in 1840, not 1810. The Belfast News-Letter (Belfast, Ireland), Friday, March 3, 1840 On the 18th ult. suddenly, Robert Dickey, Esq. of Roachdale, near Dundalk, in the 58th year of his age.

I also differ with the transcriber re: the death date of Jane DICKIE who died November 2nd - the 1850 looks like 1830 to me, and is a better fit with the fact that her father died in 1840. (It is a challenging stone to decode.)

The death of the 2nd Jane was in 1856 as confirmed by a news account, so I inserted the number. The Belfast News-Letter (Belfast, Ireland), Wednesday, December 10,1856: December 5, of hemorrhage of the lungs, in the 22nd year of her age, Jane, third daughter of the late Robert Dickie, Esq., of Roachdale, in the County of Louth.
