Here lyes John Bell of Whitesyde who was barborously shot to death in the paroch of Tongland at the command of Grier of Lag anno 1685. This monument shall tell posterity that Blessed Bell of Whytesyde here doth ly. Who at command of Bloody Lag was shot, a murder strange which should not be forgot. Douglas of Morton did him quarters give, but cruel Lag would not let him survive. This martyre sought some time to recomend his soul to God befor his dayes did end. The tyrant said what devl ye've pray'd enough this long seven yeare on mountains and in Cleugh so instantly caus'd him with other four, be shot to death upon Kirconnel Moor.
