Scobie, Robert (1873–1883)

A sad case of drowning happened here yesterday evening. The two eldest children of Mr. Robert Scobie, saddler, were sent to the river to get some water, and as they did not return home before dark, the anxious parents began to make a search for them. The townspeople commenced dragging the river, and the two bodies were recovered this morning after several hours' searching in the river.
