Hi, What research have you already done.
re your research of your Ggrandfather George MOORE - born 1848 born [where] Moved to Clinton PA U.S.A.
Married Sarah EDGAR.

Perhaps the Registration of Marriage/ Long form Marriage Certificate:
for George MOORE to Sarah EDGAR - will show the place of birth - names of parents including maiden name of the mother. All depends on the requirement at the time.

George MOORE may have made application for U.S. Citizenship
That should show some personal information - may show names of his parents etc

Border Crossing Records: - If your GGrandfather was Cree it is possible that he had free access to crossing the border
If Not, Don't know if they were required at the time.so search Border Crossing records

Sorry. George married Amanda edgar. Sarah Maria edgar was her mother. Still looking to find George's parents name. His mother may have been a Cree living in moosonee.

You may want to look at the Hudson's Bay Company archives as Moose Factory was a Hudson's Bay outpost.
