Dear Willam,
Thank you so much for your response - you've provided so much information here, nearly all of which is new to me and which I've been unable to find elsewhere!

Edwin Charles Moseley is my 3rd great grandfather. I am descended from his son, Alfred Edwin, who had 5 children that I know of, at least two of whom were involved in carrying on the Nassau Guardian into the 1900s. Alfred's daughter Harriet D. Moseley married Algernon Rae, and they had four children, including Dorothy Elizabeth (my grandmother). Dorothy married Leonard Sanborn and had six children, including my father, Donald. They eventually left the Bahamas and moved back to New England, where Leonard's family is from.

I believe some of Alfred's other children have Moseley descendents who are still in Nassau, though, and carry on the family name there. I have a bit of information on some of them and would be happy to share it if you like, but don't want to duplicate what you already have.

The furthest back I've been able to trace this part of my family is to Edwin Charles, so it was very helpful that you could confirm his parents. I'd love to hear any more info you have on Francis and Louisa or further back, or to see the tree you mention if you ever do track it down or have an idea of where to find it.

I'm also very interested in the Doyle side - I knew about William Henry Doyle and Villa Doyle and have found that Mary and William are the children of Edmund, who has a ship captain (possibly from Dublin, Ireland), but I've never been able to find out more about that line. I hope to make it back to the Bahamas at some point and would like to do some research in the national archives, but that likely won't be anytime soon.

I'd love to keep in touch and share more information. Where do you live now? Your branch of the family has some fascinating history as well, and it's wonderful to make connections with distant cousins!

All the best,
