John Moffat's wife - Mary Bertram or Margaret Gibson (d 1833 Dunse)?

I have a mystery re John Moffat, tenant of Hordweel, Berwickshire, Scotland, with two different records. One says that his wife, Mary Bertram, died April 10, 1833; the other says his wife, Margaret Gibson, died April 12, 1833. And, one was 69, the other 67. Which is it?

We have a marriage record for John Moffat and Mary Bertram, but not for John and Margaret Gibson. A 2nd marriage?

Duns Parish Churchyard. Page 98 No. 12 (Berwickshire Monumental Inscriptions).

Mary Bertram wife of John Moffat, tenant of Hoardweel 10.4.1833 - 69yrs.
said John Moffat 10.11.1840 - 84yrs.
son Peter tenant in Hoardweel 26.1.1862 - 63yrs.
son John died in London 11.11.1824 -
31yrs. Alison Aitchison wife of Peter Moffat 1.5.1865 - 71yrs.

Dunse Burial records:

April 12 Margaret Gibson wife of John Moffat, tenant Hordweel, died 12th April 1833, and buried 15th April aged 67 years.

Any help in sorting this out would be appreciated.
