Jackie,
Apologies from me please.
I mis-read your post but now see that you are looking for the parents of Isabella Gibb.

As per my post. she does not seem to be the one born in Greenock 1813

Reid children born after 1843 are on family search, but not the older ones.
The (apparent) 1st daughter has the name Mary Strang Reid , and is usually named for her maternal grandmother.
Could indicate that Isabella Gibb's mother was called Mary Strang

EDIT:
There is a matching death on Scotlands People for Isabella.
Isabella Reid. ...Other name: Gibb.... Born 1811. ...Died in Eastwood 1882.
Note: Eastwood is part of Renfrewshire but SP search has it in Lanarkshire.

Her death cert should provide her parents names.

Cannot locate the family at 1871

Think I might know why she is being elusive.
Above Isabella was born in Greenock 1811.
Isabella Gibb who married Robert Reid was born in Partick, Lanarkshire.

Family Search has the children born to Robert Reid and Isabella Gibb.
Older ones born in Paisley and younger ones in Eastwood.
Can find the family on census returns
Isabella's place of birth is consistent on both 1851 and 1861 returns,.. Partick.
The naming pattens of her children don't look right for her to be the daughter of William Gibb and Mary McCowat ( or variants)
