     He was born on 8 December 1852 in Canada West, United Province of Canada.7,4,5,9
     He died on 10 June 1871 at age 18 Died in infancy per Janet Hume, but Mary Louise Young shows that the 1861 census listed him as being 9 years old. She lists this date of death.6,2,4 Alternatively, he died in 1870 according to his gravemarker, but he was enumerated in the 1871 census, so this date can be discounted.5 Robert Moffat was buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Newtonville, Clarke Twp., Durham County, Ontario, Canada.5
     14 August 2007 Research notes:
Find death registration and Ensure she wrote 1852, not 1822 as indicated in Citation Detail

     He was born on 30 June 1854 in Newcastle, Canada West, United Province of Canada, family bible.4,5,10,8,11,7 Alternatively, he was born on 15 June 1855 in Canada West, United Province of Canada, in the 1901 census, the date could be June 18. Handwriting is open to interpretation. Year of birth is overwritten, so 1855 is based upon age at time of enumeration = 46. In the 1911 census the birthdate is given as Jun 1855.12,13,11 or circa 1859 in Clarke Twp., Durham County, Canada West, United Province of Canada, according to his marriage registration.6 Thomas married Joanna C Gray on 15 December 1880 in Clarke Twp., Durham County, Ontario, Canada, according to Ontario Marriage Registration 007935.

     The following newspaper article appeared in the Bowmanville, Ontario Canadian Statesman 17 July 1940 :
Mrs. (sic) Thos. Moffat
Marks 87th Birthday (note: actually his 86th birthday)
Two Brothers Here

The home of Mr. Thos. Moffat, retired farmer, church elder, President of the Newcastle Bible Society, and all round good citizen was the scene of a happy family gathering on Monday evening, June 30th, when about 50 relatives gathered to felicitate him on the attainment of his 87th birthday. Of special importance was that fact that two of his brothers Mr. Roger Moffat and Mr. Alfred Moffat, were here from Frobisher, Sask., also a nephew, Rev. Alex. Moffat, recently ordained United Church minister, of Frobisher, Sask. Other present were: Mr. and Mrs. W. F.

E. Morton as chairman short speeches were delivered congratulating Mr. Moffat. Mr. Moffat's granddaughters, Miss Helen Lycett, teacher on Oshawa Public School staff, and Miss Marjorie Lycett, Newcastle, who make their home with him, made ideal hostesses. Refreshments, which all helped to contribute, were served and a jolly social time spent.28

     Thomas Moffat was referenced in a news item about Mrs. Alf Moffat's visit published on 18 July 1940 in the newspaper the Canadian Statesman.29

     Thomas Moffat was recorded as father of the bride at the marriage of Jack Nesbitt and Helen May Lycett on 25 April 1942.30
     The following biographical information appeared in the book "Clarke Township, Eastern section : its place, people and events", 1967:
...Thomas Graham Moffat (died 1943) moved into this part of Clarke with wife Joanna Gray (died 1933). In early 1880's they lived at lots 9 and 10, Con. 2 where Ethel and Mabel were born. Also Lot 9 B.F. where Margaret was born in 1888.

     See the footnotes below for a link to his on-line obituary that appeared in the bi-monthly publication the Baptist Herald published in Galena, Kansas, January 1990 .6

     The following information is from my personal research, January 2018:
In "The Germans from Volhynia and Russian Poland" the University of Alberta provides the following quote:
"Virtually all German Baptist communities that had been established in the 1850s in Poland emigrated to Volhynia (by 1914 Volhynia would have between 40,000 and 50,000 Baptists, served by about a dozen churches.)"

This may help to explain the confusing references to Russia, Poland and Ukraine in various sources for the Schmuland family.10

Census Data

     Charlie Schmuland and Martha appeared on the 1921 Canadian Census of RM of Stanley No. 215, Saskatchewan, enumerated 1 June 1921. Charlie was enumerated as a farmer and a Baptist. They were both of German heritage.5
