Francis Gore of Richmond Virginia and possibly of Georgia
« on: Friday 01 May 20 15:44 BST (UK) »
Hi all. Hoping someone can help me out. I have found newspaper article referring to a Francis S. Gore (also noted as a Francis Saunders Gore, and as Professor) who was living and working in Richmond, Virginia in the 1830s.
Can anyone see him in this area or later? I am looking for any spouse or children he might have had, or what became of him?
Thanks, Katharine.

Hopefully this might be a different newspaper article - also mentions people called Saunders.

Hi Sandra, thankyou  :), yes that's one I already have. And I am wondering if his middle name is Saunders there could be a familial connection. I also tried finding something on them but no luck. They could be Saunders & Sons of Richmond perhaps.

Other articles refer to Mr Francis S. Gore as a "Graduate of Trinity College, Dublin".

Yes, I already have notes on his education and life prior to the mid 1830s. Then I found him resurface in Richmond, VA.

I am looking for more information on his life in USA.
