John Taylor, died at the remarkable age of 137 years

Leadhills Cemetery. John Taylor retired from the mines in 1751 at the age of 117! A long time was spent in this large cemetery looking for his grave, it was eventually found. For future visitors I've included a couple of images showing the location of John Taylor's grave. It is the flat tablestone located near the boundary wall under the trees!
