There is a fairly large mausoleum (approximately 20' by 16') to the Rev Robert Wallace and his family. He died on the 5th July 1876, aged 77 in Ayr after being minister of Dalrymple for 47 years. The mausoleum, however, is now crumbling and overgrown. Most of the older stones are to farmers including No. 104, which is unusual in that it has a carving of the farmer at his plough and a team of horses or oxen, and the inscription:- “No man having put his hand to the plough and looking back is fit for the Kingdom of God.” There are also several stones with cast iron surrounds e.g. No 126, which are presumably of people involved with the nearby iron works at Waterside (Dalmellington Iron Works Company).
No. 46 - Hogg “Mourn not for those whom God has blest/ and taken to their heavenly rest/ Free from all sorrow, grief and pain/ Our loss is their eternal gain.”
No. 55 - Coulter “His trials and griefs are past/ A blessed end is here at last/ He bore Christ's yoke and did his will/ And though he died he liveth still/He lives where none can mourn and weep/ And calmly shall his body sleep/ Till God shall death himself destroy/ And raise it into glorious joy.”
No. 87 - Latimer “A man of genius, though of humble rank yet of exhalted virtues and extensive literary attainments. This memorial of his work is erected by numerous acquaintances to whom he was endeared by his generous and grateful spirit, his upright and: independent principles and his lowly but firm father.”
No. 203 - McMurtrie “At the age of 7 she was left an orphan but God who is rich in mercy provided a home for her in a religious family where she was brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, the good example shown in her youth was inherited by her till death. She was possessed of strict integrity, was virtuous, honest and industrious, and beloved by all with whom She was acquainted. She was enabled by the grace of God to keep herself unspotted from the world and her aim was to have a conscience void of offence.”
