John Miller Junr
to the memory of Elizabeth Weir his wife
who died 29th July 1850
aged 30 years
Here ashes melt in death's dark shade
A solemn proof that all must fade
Here's all on earth we hold most dear
A bosom friend - a friend sincere.

Steam ship City of Glasgow

City of Glasgow left Liverpool on 1 March 1854, with an estimated 480 passengers and crew, but was never heard of again. Her fate remains a mystery to this day. It was reported that a portion of the bow of a ship, bearing the name "City of Glasgow" in gilded letters, washed ashore at Ballochgair near Campbeltown on 25 October 1854.
