Captain James Sholto Douglass
4th Madras Light Cavalry
Eldest son of the late
Reverend Robert Douglass
Minister of Ellon Aberdeenshire
and stepson of Reverend James Robertson DD
Professor of Divinity and Church History Edinburgh
Born at Ellon January 28 1823
He Died at Buxar, October 8 1858
of wounds received the previous day
while gallantly leading a carge
againts the Rebels at Kheree
His remains were interred at Buxar
Where a monument errected by his brother officers
bears testimony to the cordial esteem
and affection with which they regarded him
and their deep grief for his untimely fall.
The blank made by his death
in the relations of son and brother
is not to be filled up by the hand of time
"be thou faithfull unto death and I will give
thee a crown of life"
