Classification: Birth
Surnames: Templeton/Moore
My family are all Scottish/Irish, but my great grandfather (William Templeton) was born in the USA in 1868. My g-g-grandparents James Templeton and Mary Jane Moore were married in Ballymoney, Ireland on 28th Nov 1865, and then quickly hopped on a Ship to the USA where both William Templeton and his sister Margaret Templeton were born. By 1878 they were back in Scotland. I've been unable to find any immigration/travel records or birth certificates for William or Margaret. There may be a clue in the fact that William's mother, Mary Jane Moore, was from Ballymoney, Ireland. I've read some things which indicate that a number of the Moore family emigrated to the USA and settled here in the late 1700's so I wondered if there was a possibility that James and Mary Jane had moved over to join her family. One odd thing is that on the censuses, etc they always point out that William (and Margaret) were born in USA but were British Citizens. Does anyone know how/where these births would have been recorded?
