Belated St. Patty's Day Post

I have been able to trace my ancestry back to the 1700's when two brothers arrived in what is now the Great State of Maine from County Cork, Ireland. My ancestor had the unlikely name of Moses and hundreds of my namesakes trace their lineage back to him. He was supposedly a doctor trained at Trinity College in Dublin, but I've had some people search the records there(yes, they go back that far) and they find no record of him. Some say he was most likely a herbalist.

Although I haven't tried to find the headstone, he is supposed to buried in Cushing, Maine.
