Unknown Malcom / Malcomb Campbell

Who is this Malcomb? This stone found in Kent County, Ontario, says he was born “a native of Scotland”, died 24 Jul, 1852, age 71, implying he was born cir. 1781. None of the Malcolm’s we have seem to be him. The closest ancestor we have is Malcolm b. 1787 in Auchindrain, Scotland and who died 20 Oct 1862 in Morpeth, Howard Twp., Kent County, Ontario, Canada.  Further compounding the mystery is that I cannot locate any other information on the Malcolm/Malcomb cited on this gravestone.

“…just off the road behind a tree near a corn field. It is located in Kent County, on Kent Bridge Rd (which is #15), South of Hwy #2, at the 911 marker #22405.”
