    Death Entry for Robert Moffat
    Death Entry for Robert Moffat
    Record from Craig, Forfarshire shows death of Robert Moffat, son of Rodger Moffat and Mary Moffat ms Lee aged 47 years. NOTE that Rodger Moffat is actually Robert's older brother, not his father

  • Notes 
    • There are no birth records for Robert but I believe he was born in Ferryden, Craig. He died at 8.15 p.m. aged 47. The cause was cancer of the stomach which he suffered for about a year. His brother-in-law, David Spinks, registered his death. Margaret was still alive at this time and I find it significant that Robert was only declared "married". On all other death certs I have it gives the spouses name whether alive or deceased. It also does not give his address but this may be because he was in a hospital of some description. (Not that they really had them then). Usually people were treated at home. [3]
