I will try to insert The Shangie Maryhill papers, which had a serial about a barge that sank on the canal; I think it was at the – Shangie – I’m sure that isn’t how you spell it. Anyway, the barge had been loaded at Rockville and the man in charge of loading was my granda Burns. Two men were sent off with a load of shoes, flour, butter and WHISKY. By the time the barge reached Shangie, the two men were somewhat under the weather and they ran the barge aground on a sandbank. When the villagers, who were of Irish extraction and the men mainly miners, discovered this gift from the gods, they too were soon somewhat under the weather. The Lambhill police were called out, but they couldn’t handle the situation and decided to call in the larger police force at Maryhill. My granda Burns was called out to check the contents of the barge (my dad remembers his dad being called out to check the barge contents.) and it seems that the butter, shoes and WHISKY were all missing. The bags of flour were floating in the canal and my granda cut the bags open to discover that the wet flour had formed a skin, and all the flour inside was still dry. The ladies of the village were somewhat perturbed to have missed out on the flour. It seems that granda Dunn slept through all the excitement and that was fortunate as all the perpetrators were imprisoned, women included, one of whom was pregnant. While the adults were imprisoned, the nuns in St. Agnes’s School looked after their children. I gave the newspaper articles to Peter and I don’t know if he still has them. I sincerely hope that this e-mail doesn’t go astray as I don’t think I could type this story out again. Let me know if you find out anymore about the family history. Love Anne. X
