"SUPPOSED SUICIDE IN THE CANAL - On Thursday the dead body of a man named Gilbert Logan, 72 years of age, residing with his son near Calderbank, a miner was found dead in the Monklands Canal near Faskine Bridge. Logan had been seen by two or three neighbours shortly before and in answer to inquiries of how he was getting on, said he was tired of his life. It is supposed he committed suicide by deliberately entering the water".
His body was taken from the Canal to Clarkson Churchyard, but I have not been able to find out if he is buried there or not.
