The writing on this grave stone is unclear

The text on this stone is difficult to read but has been clarified by entries from a book ‘Aberdeenshire Epitaphs’ and it probably originally read:

Here lyes Robert,

William, Jean, and Mary

Reid, children to

A. R. and J. R., Fermer, Bedyon.

Bedyon presumably refers to Badenyon

Reid births at Badenyon were:
(Strathdon Vital Records)
