yes please Karen. I can send you some photos by return.  Not sure when Middlebie Cemetery was opened....maybe someone on here has that information.
I'm in Gretna but work in Annan...our family used to be in Eaglesfield. In fact my great grandfather made and lettered Isabella's headstone.
If I'm near Middlebie kirk yard I'll have a look in there. Pete.

Pete...are you still working out at Middlebie Cemetery....if yes could I ask if you could look for any headstones with McCracken on. My 3rd great grandfather Thomas and his wife Margaret Chalmers are buried there too....about 1919...don't worry if you have finished your work there....may get up there myself hopefully
Just looking through my tree again and my great grandfather James McLellan was a masons apprentice in Eaglesfield in 1901.aged 16 .....perhaps he worked with your great grandfather
Many thanks

Hi Karen...had another look in Middlebie today when I was pricing a job.....found this...in loving memory of Thomas McCracken who died at Eaglesfield 15 October 1919 aged 91 years. Margaret Chalmers his wife who died there 7 January 1900 aged 74. David McCracken their grandson and beloved husband of Beatrice Houghton who died at London 12 December 1935 aged 54 years.
Hope that helps?
