GIBSON.-On December 14, at his son's residence, Liverpool road, Kilsyth, Robert Moore, dearly loved husband of Annie, and father of Robert, Alfred, Joseph (deceased), Dorothea, Harold, Isabel (deceased), Roberta, John, and Arthur.
Annie died the 29th not the 9th,
I think this is her,although no mention of her children in the death notice.
This is Annie Male Gibson, nee Lobb the daughter of Joseph Lobb 1826-1897 and Joan Male 1831-1930.
