K is for Kilmorich and Kulangoor

Join me on my Cemetery Searching expedition for the 2023 A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ll be re-visiting some cemeteries and preparing for a wish list of others. Some family members will be mentioned but I also have an interest in German family graves as well as those of people born in Co Clare Ireland.

Kilmorich Kirkyard, Cairndow, Argyll, Scotland

The gravestone closest to my heart is my 2xgreat grandmother’s memorial in the Kilmorich kirkyard. The simple inscription on the base of the stone calls to me: “My star of life is set, I await the morning sun”. We visit Isabella Morrison McCorkindale every time we’re at Loch Fyne in Scotland.

Another grave which caught my eye because of its link to Down Under was this one for Janet McArthur, erected by Alexander McArthur of New Zealand.

Kulangoor Cemetery, Queensland

Kulangoor cemetery is a lawn cemetery north of Nambour. Mr Cassmob’s parents and sister are interred there under a tree. The cemetery is especially pretty when the magnolia trees are flowering, and is always tranquil. It’s quite likely Kulangoor will be the final resting place for this Cassmob couple.

  1. That does appear to be a lovely, tranquil cemetery — and that inscription is wonderful. Too bad there are not more such inscriptions on today’s grave markers.
