With luck Jim will give us a full account of his trip over. Both Joe and Jim are participants in the McCain DNA Project.
Sadly the burial stone has weathered greatly in the last 130 years. Many think that it is acid rain that has caused the rapid deterioration in the stone. Fortunately, the stone was surveyed in 1875 and we have the notes and line drawing of it taken during the survey. The text of the stone was completely legible in 1875, but parts of the writing and ornamentation are now faded.
