Moses appears to be alive at the wedding of Thomas Corbett and Christina McCrae in 1889 – at least he not recorded as being dead on the wedding certificate (12th July 1889). Mary Hill Corbett was not recorded as deceased either, but Donald McCrae was.

The 1901 Census also has a record of William Corbett 1867 living with the Wardrops at 57 Logan Row.
