The military record for Charles Adolphus Moger
« on: Thursday 03 September 20 14:49 BST (UK) »
My next `brickwall´! Can anyone fill in some gaps?

I am seeking more details plus the military record for Charles Adolphus Moger born 3q 1850 Chelsea who served in Malta, his 1st son William Adolphus John Moger was born there about 1885.

He married Jane Mary (surname unknown) – in Hampshire or Malta?

Two daughters were born: - a) Sarah in Aldershot, Hampshire and b) Christiana 1881 in Chatham, Kent

All their other children were born in Atcham, Shrewsbury, Shropshire between 1887 and 1900.

Bermuda 30 Oct 69 to 14 Feb 75

Moger was the name of a London coal merchant ... I have recently bought an N gauge coal wagon in Moger livery for my model railway.

No idea if there is a connection to your family or not (or, indeed, to the Mogers in mine) ... but I rather like having a wagon in a livery which bears a name connected to my family! (In my case the name only appears in a collateral line, not amongst my direct ancestors ... )
