25/07/1899 – The Scotsman – Boy drowned at Paisley. On Sunday evening, shortly after seven o’clock, a sad drowning accident happened at Galt’s Brick Work, Inchinnan Road, Paisley, whereby Arthur Morton, nine years of age, son of James Morton, a carter, residing at 9 New Smithhill, lost his life. Along with another boy, Gebbie, he had gone to this brickwork, where there is an old clay hole, which was at one time filled with water, but into which a lot of rubbish has been put. This had formed what appeared to be a perfectly substantial surface, and the boys ventured on it with the purpose of crossing. The surface gave way, and the boys sank. Gebbie managed to make his way out but Morton sank before assistance could be procured. Every means was taken to recover the body, but up till last night, it had not been reached.
