     Joseph Douglas Moe was born on 10 December 1862.1 He was the son of John Wesley Moe and Sophia Augusta Lawrason.1 He married Mamie Hannah on 24 October 1888 at Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan. (notes: Michigan marriage registration nbr. 2430. License date October 22, 1888. Douglas J. Moe, 26, white, residing Brantford, Canada, born Canada, com. traveller, parents J.W. Moe and S.A. Laurason. Mamie Hanna, 19, white, born and residing Detroit. Parents are shown as unknown, but their names may simply not have been entered on the form. Date of marriage October 28, 1888, at Detroit. Clergyman Z. Grenell. Witnesses Wm. A. Sweetman, Woodstock, Ontario, and Imogene Cole, Detroit, Michigan.).1 Joseph and Mary and their daughter Ruth are at London, Ontario, at the time of the 1901 census. Their birth dates are taken from that census. Joseph is said to be a commercial traveller. It's interesting to note that his brother James is a commercial traveller as well.

At Detroit in the 1910 census is Joseph D. Moe with his wife Mary and their children, Ruth 17, Kenneth L. 7, and Douglas J. 4.
In the 1920 census, the three children are still with them. Ruth is a stenographer. By the 1930 census, Joseph and Mary are on their own. He is shown as a produce broker.

In the Canadian census of 1881 and 1901, Joseph's place of birth is given as Ontario. In the U.S. census information his place of birth is given as Michigan. Michigan may be correct, for his parents were there in 1860 and 1861.1
