I have just come across your website while undertaking some of my own family tree research.  I was searching using ‘George Ogle Moore’ and came across this section of your site;

I believe the Rev Ogle William Moore you mentioned, may be one of the sons of George Ogle Moore. Another son, John emigrated to Australia and is my g/g/great grandfather. George himself was MP for Dublin 1826-1831. He married Elizabeth Armstrong. Does this sound like your Rev Ogle Moore?
