Hi Suzy,

This sounds really close. The date doesn't match tombstone from 1901 listing date of birth as Nov. 5th, 1835 but who knows. The names in the family are very similar. Zerada Mourn Williams had two children -- Daniel Norman Williams and Mahala Teresa Williams which match your Zorada Moran's parents of Daniel and Mahala.

My info comes from the following:

Year Settled 1852 Post Office Wallaceburg

Birthplace: C.W. (Canada West)
Age 26
Religion: Episcopal Methodist

Williams

Do you have any other dates, info on the parents, siblings, etc? Would appreciate anything you may have.

Sincerely,
