Note
Fifeshire Advertiser – Tue 18th Apr 1875 (Source: The May 2001 Fife Family History Society Journal.) At Perth Spring Circuit Court. From the trial of Robert Bowman for the murder of Isabella Bowman (Gordon), his wife. One of the witnesses was George Kilgour, engine-driver, deponed to having been in Bowman’s house on the Saturday before the murder, along with Peter Haldane, fireman. The party had drink, and Bowman and his wife were both affected by it, but during his stay they appeared to be on friendly terms with each other. The prisoner went to bed before the witness left. He knew Bowman when he was station-agent at Muiredge, and always understood him to be a heavy drinker. He had always had a strange look, and conducted the business at Muiredge is a loose manner.
