Inch Island, there is and old graveyard called Strachack. At one time it was one great big graveyard but some years back it divided into two, the Catholic getting one side, and the Protestants the other. In the Protestant side, there is a tomb-stone dating back to 1368, there was a man called John Anderson aged 73. In the upper side of the graveyard it is terribly over-grown with nettles and the graves could not have been well fixed.
