The burying place of the family of Galbraith of Old Derrig, Queens County

In Castle Hill at the rear of Nolan’s stonecutters on a mound of earth raised about 8 feet above the level of the street and completely disconnected with the present burial ground of St. Mary’s Church of Ireland, can be found the remains of an altar tomb. The following is the inscription:

“Beneath this stone are deposited the bodies of Samuel Galbraith Esq. who [died] in the year 1793 aged 73 years [also] Benjamin Baker, Galbraith Esq. son [of the] above Samuel who died on the 24th [of] September, 1821, aged 48 years. [ ?.] Galbraith son of the above B.B.G. [died] Deci 27th, 1821, aged 8 months.”

The left side of this slab is broken off, hence the words in brackets are missing.
