Kingskettle Cemetery…Oh Isabella ©

Dedicated to the families
Traill and Bennet

In Kingskettle Cemetery I stand
Looking at a stone on a piece of land
I read some names I thought I’d never see
In this place I thought I’d never be

Oh Isabella I read your name
I found from St Andrews on the coast you came
Oh Isabella you didn't know me
But I think about you by the sand and the sea

Shorehead, St Andrews, birthplace of Isabella.

Upon finding the final resting place of family it became a regular occurrence to visit there either when arriving or departing Fife. Kingskettle Cemetery has a peaceful setting with a lovely view of the Lomond Hills. It also ties in with me walking the Fife Coastal Path coming down the Kinkle Braes to the East Sands near to Isabella's birthplace.

In August 2013 there was a message for me from a lady who believes she is Isabella's cousin, maiden name of Reid and living in Canada. She was taught to dance by Isabella in the family home. I have found that surname in research of our family tree.

Experiences such as this led to my wife and I to put together the book WULFRUNIAN FOOTPRINTS in FIFE in which the poem and story can be seen in full.
