In 1908, aged 19, Tom Moore emigrated from his birthplace in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland to Canada, arriving in Toronto. He soon found work in railways construction. In 1915, he joined the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force, and was assigned to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps.
Tom Moore served in a military hospital in Salonika, Greece until 1917, when the hospital unit was moved to Basingstoke, England.
While stationed at Basingstoke, in 1918, he met and in July married a young Scottish woman Margaret Ross MacLeod. In 1919, after the war, he returned to Canada with his wife. From here, Tom Moore's story is best told in the book Footprints of Tom Moore Sr., written by his daughter Margaret Elaine Moore Morrison, and published in 2010 (4.6 MB).
Both Tom Moore and his wife Margaret have entries in the dynamic family tree.
