Charles Gordon/Alexander Knight


DIED at George Anderson's, Badyfash, on the second day of January, 1814, a Poor Travelling Man, who called himself CHARLES GORDON, but by some papers found it would appear his real name was ALEXANDER KNIGHT; he said he was a native near Boyndie, or Banff; some money was found on him; and he was decently interred at Rayne.

Any of his relations, by calling at George Anderson, Badyfash, parish of Fyvie, will receive what is over paying funeral charges.  If not claimed within two months, it will be given to the poor of the parish.

Badyfash, 27th January, 1814.
