John W. NIO (Moe) of Beverly, to Amelia Lawreson, of Dumfries. 5 Nov.1847. Rev Whighting. Wit. William Parsons and Sarah Shook.

John W. Moe would have been born at St. George, Ontario, in DumfriesTownship, later South Dumfries. He was 24 at the time of his marriage. Just why John was living in Beverly at the time of his marriage isn't clear. Township assessments for Beverly, however, place his name against one of his father's half lots. This may be to ascribe ownership or he may actually have been residing there. His father was dead some eight years and his mother was remarried to Samuel Wait. They were living on a farm in the St. George area until at least 1851. In the 1851 census at South Dumfries, John Wesley Moe was living with his mother and Samuel. This was around the time of Amelia's death.
 
DeathShe died on 1 October 1851. 
BurialShe was buried at St. George Cemetery, South Dumfries Township. 
NoteAmelia Lawrason's parents were John Purvis Lawrason and Amelia Simons. John Purvis Lawrason married a second time to Hannah Kitchen. Amelia was a first cousin of Sophia Augusta Lawrason, her husband's second wife. John Wesley Moe was second cousin to them both.
