 View Family Group Sheet of Samuel MOORE


My second set of GrGr Grand parents Samuel MOORE(also spelled MORE, MOOR) was settled in Whitby Twp by 1822 with a wife and one child. Again, I have not been able to find his marriages.
Most information is second hand. Although I haven’t been able to get a copy of his land application I have been told he applied in 1817 and stated he was from Lower Canada and a discharged soldier from the war of 1812, (He would only have been about 15yo in 1812) it also states he was a private in the Glengarry Regiment.
We know Samuel was born in
Vermont in 1797 so possibly he moved to Canada with his family at a young age, Samuel married twice. I have only tracked down 4 children from the first marriage but have been given the details of 12 for the second.

Samuel married first prior to 1822
Abigail SMITH.

There was one male child by 1822 but I haven’t found him, also there may have been more children by this marriage.

Known children are
Eunice MORE born abt 1824 Whitby marr. (1) 1843 George BOYCE  8 known children  Married (2) 1874 George SOLE
2. Abram MOORE born abt 1825 marr abt 1844  (1) Amy or Anny?? 5 known children  (2) 1881 Sarah SUMMERS in Middlesex County. He was a mason by trade.

She married again in 1873 to William Carter, no known children.

Samuels 2nd wife
Maria died in 1857 and the children were scattered to different relatives. 1861 census finds Samuel Sr & young George with Eunice and George BOYCE. Samuel Jr is at the STALEY residence.

In 1871 Charlotte is with my Great Grandparents Drullet but disappeared after that.  I couldn’t track any of them any farther.

I believe that most of them went to the US.
