Above is the headstone of Proby's grave on Arden Vale Road near Kanyaka.
The inscription reads;

THIRD SON OF THE EARL OF CAREYSFORT;
WHO WAS DROWNED WHILE CROSSING THE WILLOCHRA CREEK

Take Ye Heed, Watch and Pray: For Ye
Know Not When The Time Is. MARK XIII.33
THIS TABLET WAS PLACED OVER HIS GRAVE BY HIS
BROTHERS & SISTERS IN THE YEAR 1858.
