Biography
 1864 On Thursday, at Acrise (before the Rev. Charles Chapman), A Thomas Fox and A John Carswell were charged with breaking a window, the property of John Gibson, of Acrise. Prosecutor's wife 51 stated that about half-past five o'clock in the afternoon of the 12th inst., she was getting her children's supper, when she was alarmed by a large stone being thrown against the front door. She ran to the door, thinking it was a gun discharged, and intended to lock the door, least anyone should attempt to enter. Before she could get to the door a stone came through the window. She ran across the garden to call her husband, and she then saw the defendant sitting on a style, near. She asked him his name and be refused to tell her.
