Hi
Would like some help to decipher the writing on this headstone.
These people are my 3 x great grandparents and their son who died at 10 months from what I can see on the headstone. They are buried at Maclean Cemetery, Maclean, New South Wales, Australia

I have deciphered:

ROBERT RANKIN
                        Scotland
Aged 71 years

Also
GABRIEL WINGATE RANKIN
Died
Aged 10 months

HANNAH RANKIN
Died
22nd April 1919
Aged 84 years.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Stephanie.

Just bringing this one up. Afraid I can't get any more out of it than Stephanie already has. Perhaps others can do better.

 up to just I have Robert Rankin 21st august 1902. I assume that is the date of death.

 Gabriel Wingate Rankin Death 14th Dec. 1873

 Hannah Rankin Died 22nd April 1918

     Most is unreadable but I suspect some of it are Latin inscriptions

              P.S. It would appear that the details can't be read by the people taking the picture ???
