My maiden name was Darling, I am South African and live in Cape Town. I have been researching the Darling family using information passed on to my sister from my grandfather some years ago. It is recorded in rough note form but I believe that Alexander Darling was my great-grandfather's brother. Both were born in Carmichael, Scotland. My great-grandfather, James, was born in 1853 and Alexander in 1858. They were the sons of James Darling of Thankerton, who according to census records was born around 1809. My grandfather mentioned that James and Alexander had two siblings - John who married Suzy and Bertha. I have not turned up any details about them yet. I would very much appreciate an enlarged image of this monument, please.
