We are definitely researching the same family, it appears. I am working on this genealogy project for a co-worker of mine. Her father was Arthur Reginald Moore ( b. Sept., 1927 in Chelsea, MA. He was son of Zebedde Moore ( b.c. 1888/89 in Carbonear, N.F. ) and Selina King ( b. Jan. 31, 1899 in Broad Cove, N.F. ). Selina King had a brother named Reginald King who died in WW1. Selina King was daughter of Diamond and Elizabeth King, of Broad Cove, N.F.
From 1920 census for Chelsea, MA.: Hugh King ( age 33 yrs; imm. in 1910; b. N.F.; parents b. N.F.; was living with wife, Dorlas; age 31 yrs.; imm. in 1905; b. N.F.; parents b. N.F.; ran a grocery store; and were living with 2 sons named Henry and Chester or Charles; and also living there was a boarder, Wilson King; age 19 yrs.; b. MA.; parents b. N.F.
From 1930 census for Revere, MA.: Wilson King was now age 29 yrs.; b. MA.; parents b. N.F.; living with wife Gladys ( Puddister ); age 29 yrs.; b. MA.; parents b. N.F. They were living with children: John W., Boyd, and Lorraine ( my co-worker's mother ).
From the 1920 census for Chelsea, MA.: William D. King, age 28 yrs.; imm. in 1910; b. N.F.; parents b. N.F.; was living with wife, Effie, age 26 yrs.; imm. in 1913; b. N.F.; parents b. N.F. They were living with sons, Francis, and John E. Also living with them was Selina King; cousin; age 20 yrs.; imm. in 1914(?); b. N.F.; parents b. N.F.; as well as sister-in-law Fannie Loveys, age 19 yrs.; imm. in 1914; b. N.F.; parents b. N.F.
Selina King was born Jan. 31, 1899 in Broad Cove, N.F.; and she had a brother named Reginald King who died in WW1. She was daughter of Diamond and Elizabeth King of Broad Cove, N.F.
Selina King married Zebeddee Moore and had son, Arthur Reginald Moore ( b. Sept., 1927 in Chelsea, MA. Arthur Reginald Moore was the father of my co-worker. He married Lorraine King ( b. May, 1929 in Chelsea, MA. ) and had daughter, Nancy L. Moore ( b. Sept. 13, 1959 ), my co-worker.
It is extremely confusing because both Nancy's mother and father came from King and Moore families in N.F. Nancy's father was Arthur Reginald Moore, s/o Zebeddee Moore and Selina King. Selina King was d/o Diamond and Elizabeth King of Broad Cove, N.F.
Nancy's mother was Lorraine King, d/o Wilson King ( b. 1901 in Chelsea, MA. ) and Gladys Puddister ( b. 1901 in Chelsea, MA. ). Wilson King was s/o Willis King and Lillian Moores of Broad Cove, Bay de Verde, N.F. But it appears a generation was skipped in that scenario. Gladys Puddister was d/o John Puddister and Marion Hollet of Broad Cove, N.F.
The skipped generation goes as follows: In 1925, Willis King was on a ship to visit his son, Wilson King, who lived at 125 Central Ave. in Chelsea, MA. His wife's name was Martha. His age was 54 yrs. and he was of Carbonear, Broad Cove, n.F.
In 1900, Wilson Leonard King, s/o Willis King and Martha Lillian, was a fisherman at Adam's Cove. Willis King was s/o Thomas King and Amelia Thistle Mulleys. Thomas King's parents are believed to be William King and Mary ( maiden name unknown ). Thomas King was b. July 11, 1851; s/o William King and Mary ( maiden name unknown ) of Broad Cove.
In 1832, the Diamonds lived Adams Cove, Conception Bay, N.F. From an 1871 directory, Diamonds, all fishermen, were living at Adams Cove, in a fishing settlement in Bay de Verde, N.F., 13 miles from Carbonear.
FRom Old Blackhead Methodist Cemetery in Black Head, Bay de Verde district, were:
1. John Diamond: d. July 10, 1779 at 36 yrs. ( b.c. 1743 ).
2. William Diamond: d. Jan. 17, 1810 at 87 yrs. ( b.c. 1723 ).
3. Clement Diamond: b. Mar. 31, 1840; d. Mar. 8, 1905.
I am awaiting further verification from the city clerk at Chelsea, Ma. concerning certified record copies.
From re-reading your posting: The Selina King that I am researching for my co-worker, was indeed living in the household of William D. King and his wife, Effie. She was listed as his cousin and she was age 20 yrs. ). This indeed was from the 1920 census, for Chelsea, MA. And also from the 1920 census for Chelsea, MA., was Hugh King with wife, Dorlas. Also living with them was a boarder, Wilson King ( age 19 yrs. ).
Now stay with me here...Selina King was d/o Diamond and Elizabeth King of Broad Cove, N.F. She married Zebeddee Moore and they had son, Arthur Reginald Moore, my co-worker, Nancy's, father. In 1920, Selina King was a cousin,20, living in the household of William D. King as his cousin. In 1920 living in Chelsea, MA. was Hugh King, and living in his household was boarder, Wilson King, age 19 yrs. Wilson King later married Gladys Puddister, d/o John Puddister and Marion Hollet, and they had daughter, Lorraine King, my co-worker, Nancy's mother. Lorraine King married Arthur Reginald Moore and had my co-worker, Nancy.
God...my head hurts. It is very confusing but I think you can understand it if you read it over several times.
