MARGARET HALCRO, mother of EBENEZER & RALPH ERSKINE
DID YOU KNOW…
…the story that Ralph Erskine’s mother “died” before he was born?
The Rev. Ralph Erskine was a seccessionist minister in Dunfermline in the early 18th Century, and his statue stands outside the former church in Pilmuir Street. There is a little known tale about his mother, Margaret Halcro, who is buried in Scotlandwell.
In “The Burial Place of Margaret Halcro“, George Robertson tells the tall(?) tale.
