Joshua Andrew Moore

Joshua Andrew MOORE is my fourth great grand uncle on two lines of my family (pretty odd hunh?), we are related through Joseph S. and Olive (GILPATRICK) MOORE and Solomon I. and Christiana (SIMONTON) JORDAN.  Joshua was born 19 May 1774, in Ellsworth, Maine.  He is the oldest of six children.  He married Elizabeth (Betsey) JORDAN in 1798 in Trenton, Maine. They had ten children:  Joseph, Abigail, Jane H., Joshua Jr., Elizabeth (Betsey), James Grant, Emma H., Olive G., Mary Osborn, and Benjamin S. They had over thirty grandchildren, from what I can find.   He is enumerated in the 1850 census in Waltham, Maine, living with his daughter Abigail and her husband John C. Jordan[1].  He died 22 July 1851 in Waltham, Maine.  He is buried at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham, Maine.
