Birth year taken from age on marriage certificate for the wedding on July 24, 1915 in Toronto to Ida Mary Raflaub.
Parents of the groom were Robert McKibbon and Mary Houston. Parents of the bride were Alfred Raflaub and Lena Gerber both of Switzerland.
Robert Jr. is listed on his parents monument. However it is possible that he is not buried here in Cobden. For example his brother George Fitzsimmons McKibbon is also listed on the monument but is actually interred at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa.
On the 1921 census of Canada Robert McKibbon is living with wife Ida McKibbon, They have a son named Gordon K. McKibbon (age 4) and a daughter Dorothy McKibbon (age 1). They live at 1618 Dundas St. W in Toronto, Ontario. Their religion is given as Anglican. Robert McKibbon's occupatioin is given as Bank Manager.
Mrs. Ida McKibbon dies on November 8, 1925. Her place of birth is listed as Burks Falls. Her parents are listed as being born in Switzerland. Her address is given as 62 Lyall Ave. Her place of burial is listed as "Norway". Her cause of death listed as "Perpetual Fever" with a contributory cause of "Labour" so it seems it might be related to child birth.
We know that Robert Gordon McKibbon remarried on July 28, 1927 to Ethel Mary Taylor who was born in England. His father is listed as Robert James McKibbon and his mother as Mary Houston. Ethel Mary Taylor's parents are listed as James Taylor and Elizabeth Kellett of England. Unfortunately Ethel Mary McKibbon dies on August 8, 1935. Her residence is given as 219 Kingston Rd, Toronto, Ontario. On her death certificate, her burial is listed as St. Johns Cemetery. Toronto.
That is the last trace of Robert Gordon McKibbon aside from this headstone in Cobden, Ontario where his is listed with his parents. It is unknown whether he is buried here or not.
