"It is said of John Dunlop that he was typical dour Scot.  Walking across his acres one day, he stopped suddenly, drove a stake into the ground and strode on without explanation.  This action was taken to mean that he wished to be buried at that spot, and there he was buried in July, 1873.  His wife, Jane Liddel (Liddle) died the following year and lies buried beside him in the acres they cleared."
