Title: Date of Livingstone stone with family crest at Keil Cemetery
Posted by: Donald (Livingstone) Clink
Date: 30 March 2007

The cemetery stone with the worn Livingstone or Maconlea crest states that is was erected by Donald Livingstone in 1760 for his parents at Keil Cemetery, Movern. Obviously the stone is that old and if one reasonably assumes the decoratively inclosed information on the stone was carved in 1760 the year the stone was completed for the burial of Donald's father,then there is one more clue in addition to nearby Island of Lismore parish records from the 1750's that the name change to Livingstone from Maclea or Maconlea possibly took place sometime between 1750 and 1760. 

The photo was kindly submitted to me by a member of the McInnes family whose family was from Movern and I passed it on to the Niall Livingstone. The photo is in the forum gallery and if your eyes are good you can make out some of the information on the stone including the date 1760.  

regards
