Nothing for Alexander yet in 1871..

John's death not leaping out either, found a couple or so trees, none of them have it :rolleyes:

John Gilbertson son 26 Wood Machine-man Govan, Lanarkshire
Nelly Gilbertson dau 19
Alexander Gilbertson son 17
James Gilbertson son 14
David Gilbertson son 11

This marriage is a bit unusual.

Marriage: 1917; 89 Junction Street, Leith South, Midlothian, Scotland; by declaration in presence of Christina Ann Anderson Owen, domestic servant and William Phillips, private L & B horse; John Gilbertson, wood machinist; widower; age 42; usual residence 253 Leith Walk, Leith; parents Alexander Anderson Gilbertson, boatbuilder and Euphemia Gilbertson M.S. Scott; AND Charlotte A. Leonhardt, domestic servant, spinster; age 40; usual residence Red Row, Limekilns, Fife; parents Carl Leonhardt, shipmaster, deceased and Christina Leonhardt M.S. Anderson, deceased; warrant of the Sheriff Substitute of the Lothians and Peebles dated 14th September 1917; certificate #283

I've not found John's first marriage yet.
FS is hopeless. You search for a marriage 1891 - 1917 and it gives you a list of 1871 census results and no marriages.
