Searching for MOSES' origin:
Source found for subject(s) is www.linkstothepast/marine/
via Captains Bio. which is the earliest occupation reference for GGGrandfather MOSES STONE (wife) and Captain JOHN STONE.
Additional sources from 'Ancestry' are US Census 1870, 1880 Frenchtown, Monroe MI. MOSES STONE & ELISA / LIZZY (ELISABETH LEMIRE?) w/issue; John, Rosa, Louisa, Alex, Joseph, George & William.
ELisa's(Lemire) death doc, d. 10 APR 1921,Tecumseh, Essex Canada, lists pts as ANTOINE LEMIRE & MARGUERITE (DALY). Uncertain of yr
b. 1836/39 PQ and Moses's death doc, d. 25 NOV 1925 Tecumseh, Essex, Canada is w/o pts. Only known date for b. 1839? Place Unk??
CA Census' 1891,1901, 1911 having the family in Maidstone, Essex, ONT. I have tried to search for a marriage doc without success. The Stone name was apparently chgd from?....sound/x 'Larooo' (per GGrandmother HEBERT) and I have tried various spellings; La/Le....Rue/ Roche/ Rocque/ Roach/ Heruex, and a "dit" at this time searching would be pointless.
Although, I've also searched for oldest childs birthcert. and assume he, John, was born in Detroit MI as the following 2 sib(s) no luck. In searching for Moses' origin I found my GGGrandmother Eliza (Lemire) even more so curious, If she was M. E. Lemire in early CA Census' 1851/1860 I have found her previously married and buried.
Waiting for a bite.
