Erected by the sons of Margaret Brereton to the memory of their beloved mother who departed this life November 1, 1865 aged 70 years. A native of te townland of Rasbourn in the parish of Thylon, Queens County Ireland may her soul rest in peace Amen Dearest mother thou has left us and thy loss we deeply feel but tis God that has bereft us. He can borrow all our sorrows heal.
I am descended from Lawrence but cannot locate James or Margaret Brereton or their ancestors. Actaully, I can't even find Rasbourn (maybe this should be Rathurles?? ) or Thylon. Can anyoen provide any assistance?
