Willie Bard stands for a formal portrait. Though he was the fourth child of Margaret Johnston Bard and John Bard, he was the first and only son. His death in 1868 plunged the family into such grief that removal from Annandale to Europe seemed the only course. never to return full-time to Annandale. A small white stone was installed in the exterior wall of the chapel reading: "This Chapel is the gift of John and Margaret Bard in memory of their son, Willie Bard."
