Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Frank L. Moe was born in September 1859 at Canada.1 He was the son of Husted Moe and Christina Cook.1 He married Lucy M (--?--) in 1888.1 Frank is mentioned in the 1871 census (Reel C9954, available at the Archives of Ontario, Toronto). He is mentioned in a later obituary for one of his sisters. He appears to have been away from home by the timeof the 1881 census. He seems to have gone to the United States.
He is in St. Louis, Missouri, at the time of the 1900 census. He is arailroad agent. They live at 4173 Morgan Street. They have with thema niece (divorced) Maud M. Maguire and a grand nephew, apparently Maud's son, Fred Houle. Maud was born in October of 1879 and Fred in October of 1897. Fred and Lucy are married 12 years; Maud is divorced one year. Frank is at St. Louis, Missouri, in the 1920 census. He is 60 and his wife, Lucy M. is 58. He is a railway agent and shows both parents as being born in Canada. The information I have suggests that his mother, Christina Cook, was born in the United States. In 1920 the Moes seem to be running a rather large rooming and boarding establishment.By the 1930 census Lucy Maud Moe is a widow. She runs a rooming house. She says she was 16 when she was first married. She seems to be telling the enumerator that she was rather younger than she really was.

Frank is away from home by the time of the 1881 census. At this time he would have been 21 or 22, but I have not found him in any census.

Frank L. Moe is shown as informant in the death of Louise Moe. His home is given as Chicago, Illinois. Louise died in 1911 and I find Frank L. Moe with his wife Maud as boarders in Chicago in the 1910 census. This is likely one and the same person as Frank in Missouri in the 1920 census. His wife likely went by Maud.

Naturalization records at St. Louis, Missouri, show Frank L. Moe as being naturalized on 11 October 1898, Vol. C., p79, at the Circuit Court.1
