  • Notes 
    • Death of Mr. Joseph Kilgour

      The Ayr Recorder says: When Mr. Joseph Kilgour left here on the 3rd of October with his family, he was in frail health, and felt very despondent at leaving the village where he had spent the best part of manhood, and where he was so well acquainted. News reached here last week that Mr. Kilgour died on Saturday 22nd November. This announcement will occasion very general regret in Ayr and vicinity.
