  • Notes 
    • As the names of the victims of the cholera possess a melancholy interest, particularly to the older inhabitants, we insert such of the names as those persons still surviving are able to remember. They are as follows: Mrs. James K. Andrews, Harriet Rich, Joseph Aussam, James Maxwell, a clerk in Fargus & Andrew's store; Dorothy Marshall, Andrew Simpson and niece, Alonzo Bliss, Mrs. Archibald Hunter, MacGregor, Hunter's apprentice; the brothers Lamberton, Thomas Keachie, William Shepherd, wife and son, Daniel Forbes, one Vincent, a little daughter of H. G. Barlow, J. Willits, Milo, the coloured hostler, and Marshall the cooper. Many deaths from cholera also took place throughout Dumfries. Near Branchton, Alexander Simpson, three of his family, and his brother-in-law, were all buried from the same house.
