bullet  Death Notes:

BALGOWAN, William Crookwell Gazette Fri 25.2.1887
DEATH OF MR W BALGOWAN OF REID'S FLAT The friends of this gentleman will regret to hear of his death, which took place at Dryburgh, Fish River, on the 11th inst in his seventy-ninth year. Beyond the fact that he passed away peacefully, the particulars of his death are not to hand; but from his age, and the fact that he was observed to be growing feeble the last time he was in Goulburn, now a few years ago, we presume it was to general decay of nature. Mr Balgowan was born in 1801 in the parish of Rhynie in Scotland; and arrived in the colony in 1840. About the year 1861 he settled at Dryburgh, Reid's Flat, Fish River, where he continued to reside fill his death, respected and esteemed by all who knew him for his sterling integrity, kindly disposition, and great intelligence. Mr Balgowan leaves a family of five sons and daughters all grown up and respectably settled in life. His wife died some years previously
