The Very Reverend William Ogle Moore and Anna Casey

The story told on the link below is of the demise of this family at Kilbride. The Moore's friend Mrs Smith tells of  The Very Reverend William Ogle Moore's generosity and charity but she also speaks of his weakness towards his wife and children. It is reported that the family lived beyond their means and had to sell off goods and land. The Very Reverend William Ogle Moore then takes up writing to make ends meet.
Mrs Smith kept a series of diaries where she frequently mentions the Very Reverend William Ogle Moore. She says he lavishes much affection on his children and spoils his wife with new dresses. Mrs Smith does not report on this in a positive manner, but I love that he was a generous and affectionate man.
