My Great-great Grandfather's name was William Arthur Moss- he had a son named Leo James Moss who married Lila O. Borth and their children were Edward William Moss, Lawrence Robert Moss (my father), Lila Marie Moss, Orville Leo Moss and Levi Harley (died in infancy).
William Arthur Moss's father was Joseph Masse born about 1824 in Quebec Province, Canada. The name Masse was changed to Moss in order to sound more American.

Josepph Moss-Masse was married to Zoe Langlois.

If we connect in this family tree please email me at I have much much more to share on the Moss-Masse family.
