McDiarmid Archibald Entered this sublunary state on 15th of Aug. 1799, was suddenly summoned from time to eternity
by the hand of violence on the 18th of July 1846 in the 47th year of his age. This tribute to his memory is erected by
the hand of connubial affection. O thou whose cheek the tear of pity stains Approach this sculptur'd marble and attend
Here lie the loving husbands dear remains The son, .... the brother true, .... the gen'rous friend. The pitying heart
that felt for human woe;
The dauntless heart that fear'd no human pride; The friend of man, - to vice alone a foe ... For ev'n his failings lean'd
to virtues side.

I saw your great website on the Longstreet cemetery. At least two of
my direct ancestors are buried there, and I wanted to fill in a little
bit of missing information for you.
There is listed "McFadgen, Archibald, native of Islay, born 1754." So
far so good--this is my GGG-grandfather! The name has been spelled
MacFadyen as well as McFadyen.
His wife is also listed, and here is where I can help you. You have
her as "B-ie, Mary, Consort of Archibald McFadyen Died 29th day of
Nov. 1800 Aged 37 yrs"
--Her full name is only missing one letter: it is Buie. They were
married 9/10/1790. Their son, Archibald Buie MacFadyen, is my GG
Mary Buie was the daughter of Archibald Buie of Gum Swamp (and there
were several Archie Buies, so beware!), and Catherine Shaw, daughter of
immigrant Angus Shaw. That's as far back as I can go.
I was very delighted to find your website, and wish you every success
in your historical work!
