Summary

Description
English: The Grave Of William Burns The grave is in the kirkyard of the Auld Kirk. Robert Burns’s father, William, died in 1784, aged 63. His mother, Agnes Brown, died in 1820 at age 88. She was buried in Bolton churchyard, East Lothian. The inscription on the other side of the stone reads:

“O YE, whose cheek the tear of pity stains, Draw near with pious reverence and attend! Here lie the loving husband’s dear remains, The tender father, and the generous friend; The pitying heart that felt for human wo! The dauntless heart that fear’d no human pride! The friend of man, to vice alone a foe,

“For ev’n his failings lean’d to virtue’s side.”
