He is said to have been born in Longford (Longfordshire) Ireland in 1819, immigrated with or without his wife, Esther Northan, had a son in New Orleans Louisiana in 1848 and died in Louisiana in 1866. I can't find any records for him or her except for their deaths and grave location. I have a birth record and a census record for their son, William Moffatt. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!
