David Moore was born at Eardley City, Ottawa, Canada.
He married Susan Maria Vorce of Vermont on
Aug. 19, 1839.
After hearing two Mormon missionaries preach
in their neighborhood they joined the church
and moved to Nauvoo in 1842.

They had no children but brought an orphan
with the Taylor Company to Salt Lake City
which the child later became their adopted
child.

He met his second wife while crossing the plains, he married her shortly after arriving in Utah and had 6 children with her.

His third wife was the widow of one of his friends, at the request of his friend he married her and had 5 children with her.

He served as Bishop of the Mound Fort Ward for many years, and as a member of the local militia.

David helped build the historic Mound Fort
and became the leader there.

He later helped build the Ogden Canyon Road.

He also built the bridge over the Ogden River
in the Ogden Canyon.

He later died in North Ogden.
