I am researching my great-grandfather, JOSEPH MOORE who was born May 25, 1857. No one seems to know exactly where he was born, who his parents were or if he had any siblings. He never spoke of any relations to any of his children and various sources have shown his place of birth as New York, Canada, Ireland and England. He died April 19, 1936 and is buried in Maple Avenue Cemetery in Fultonville, New York. The 1925 NY Census shows him as living in the Town of Glen and born in US. The 1915 NY Census shows him living in the Town of Glen and born in Canada. The 1900 US Census has him in the Town of Glen and born in England. The 1892 NY Census shows him as born in US and living in the Town of Palatine, NY. I have not had any luck finding out where he came from. He's the ancestor who seems to have fallen from the sky.
The lines I am researching are:
MOORE (Upstate NY)
KNIGHT (Newbury, MA & England)
GEITNER (St. Marys, PA & Germany)
GERBER (St. Marys, PA & Germany)
HEIDECK (HEYDECK) (Jersey City, NJ & Germany)
HEWITT (NY)
DOWNER (Newbury, MA & NY)
PURDY (NY)
HILYARD (Upstate NY)
BEYER (Jersey City, NJ & Germany)
HABERBERGER (St. Marys, PA & Germany)
WEBER (St. Marys, PA & Germany)
WICKETT (St. Marys, PA & Germany)
WILEY (Upstate NY)
O'ROURKE (NY and Co. Leitrim, Ireland)
QUINN (NY and Co. Leitrim, Ireland)
MUNDY (NY and Co. Leitrim, Ireland)
FOX (NY and Co. Leitrim, Ireland)

If anyone has any information, please contact me. I'd be happy to share what information I have.
