Burke/Flynn grave

Thanks to someone posing a genealogical question on one of my blogs, I have been prompted into opening a few folders. Then I realised that my 3rd cousin Margaret Gaffney had even posted a photo of our 3X grt grandparent's grave in Perth, Scotland. Michael Burke and Bridget Flynn originated from Co Mayo, but left Ireland for Scotland around the time of the Famine.
Here is a screenshot of the photo Maggie took. Spine-tingling, wonderful thing to see!
I guess this means that Wellshill Cemetery, Perth, Scotland has to be on my list of places to visit whenever I next get overseas!

And while I am at it, here is an earlier Burke posting from Maggie.
