Thank-you. I do already have all the information you posted on his two sons. What I am looking for specifically now is any information that helps me connect to Francis' descendents --my second cousins. My branch of the family moved to Canada and we have lost contact over the years with the passing of the older generations. Would love to hear from any grandchildren or great-grandchildren of Francis Ireland Moats.
