Bow, Ninian Kinnock (1824–1904)

We regret having to record the death on Sunday last of one of the oldest residents of Corowa in the person of Mr. Ninian Bow. Mr. Bow, who was born in Scotland, was one of the pioneer miners in the Ovens district. If we remember rightly, he came to Australia in the early fifties from California; at all events as far back as 1858 he was engaged in quartz reefing on the Upper Buckland, and with his brother Mr. Robert Bow, was well known to all old Upper Ovens men of that date. He was in many respects a typical Scotchman, and a fine specimen of the race. Up to quite a recent period he appeared to be hale and hearty for his years, and when he passed away he had exceeded by a decade the 'three score and ten years' held by a great authority to be the span of human existence. The funeral took place on Monday, and was conducted by the Presbyterian clergyman, the Rev. Mr. White.
