From the Hamilton Advertiser, April (end) 1912
"A TITANIC VICTIM – It has now been established beyond doubt that a young man from the Carluke district was among those lost in the Titanic disaster. The victim was James Kelly, 19 years of age, son of Mr and Mrs William Kelly, Kirk Street, Carluke. The youth, who was a house painter by trade, was going out to Canada.
