  • Notes 
    • Worked for John Browns Shipyard. Arthur and his father lived at 14 Chalmers Street, Clydebank in one room. I don't remember how many there were except for a large room at the front which was completely bare. There was a recess for a double bed in the kitchen, come livingroom, cum bathroom, cum bedroom with a toilet just outside the kitchen door in a portch. This tenement still had gas lighting in 1969.

      Arthur never married but in his later years he had a female companion. A drinking partner. All dads kilt etc was gone when he went up for Arthurs funeral and I think he blamed this lady for selling or pawning it for drink. It caused an irreparable rift with the friends he still had up there.

      When checking the burials Jeanie, Isabella, John 72 and another John aged 76 are in the grave but no mention of Arthur although the date of the 2nd John is about the time Arthur would have died. However, he was only 58 ish so who is this John aged 76???? [1]
