  1. you can add this little bit of information if appropriate……

    William McCauley Brown was my great uncle….

    Glasgow Herald 6 April 1900
    Blantyre – Colliery Accident – William Brown (39), residing at 3 Craighead Rows, was injured on Wednesday in the ell coal seam of No 2 Pit, Craighead Colliery. While employed as a miner, he was knocked down by a fall of coal. After being attended at his own home by Dr Macpherson, who found him suffering from internal injuries, he was removed to the infirmary in the ambulance waggon.
