Verified by gg grandson Allan Ferrier of Baudette, MN.
Died in Dieter Township, Roseau, MN. Buried in unmarked grave.

Robert immigrated from Ireland with his family to Ontario at age 1. (1836 or 1837) Records are unclear, but it appears he was first married to an Anna McKeon in Ontario.
1861 Census shows Robert, "Esther" (wife), and children Diana (Annavieve) age 3 and William age 1.
William was born 1860- no other record of him after that.
Daughter Annavieve Moorhead Ferrier born 1858 who's death record lists her mother as Anna McKeon/father Robert Moorhead. Robert possibly married to an "Esther" 2nd. Either Esther and Anna were the same person, or it was 2 separate marriages and Annavieve and William were either full or half siblings.

Robert's 2nd or 3rd marriage to Marcella. Marcella's 2nd marriage.
