Gunn Cemetery Tour Follow Up

The weather cooperated and approximately twenty five people showed up for a tour of Gunn Cemetery near East Earltown.

Among those attending were descendants or relatives of the MacDonalds, Gunns, MacKays and Baillies.

Thank you to Layton Lynch for sprucing up the grounds and providing transportation.   And a special thank you to those attending for their generous donations.

As the presenter for the event, I was overwhelmed by the interest in this nearly forgotten corner of Gaeldom.   There were some requests for transcripts.   Sorry,  it was ad hoc for the most part.  However I will try to post some of the material in the weeks to come.

To quote one of the inscriptions,  “Far from the haunts of the busy world,  may their ashes rest in this serene and quiet place”.
