Smart Ancestry Paisley Scotland

This evening, I am posting a video clip of a very old memorial stone located in burial ground close to Paisley Abbey.

The recumbent stone is over 170 years old with the inscription requiring a clean with brush and water to render it legible.

This stone records the life/death of Reverend William Smart who for 35 years was Minister of (?) Associate Congregation, Abbey Close, Paisley.

Born March 8th 1776

Ordained: Feb 9th 1802

Died July 13th 1837

More cleaning work required to understand remainder of the text on the stone.
