The Family Graves at the Churchyard in Kirkbean. 

During the visit to the museum, the opportunity was taken to visit the Churchyard at Kirkbean to see the Grave of John Paul Jones's father, John Paul senior.  John Paul senior was the gardener to William Craik who built the church at Kirkbean.  Nestled in the churchyard and identified by a simple notice, the tomb of John Paul can be found to the right of the path and the grave stones of the Craik family are located to the rear of the churchyard,
