The other missionary was Rev Benjamin H Balderston. He was also the founder of Methodist Girls' School Penang in 1892(Note: There was a report that Dr Benjamin Franklin West (b. 22 April 1858, Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - d. 2 July 1933, Seattle, Washington, USA) was the one who set up the Anglo-Chinese Girls School in Penang in 1892 (today known as the Methodist Girls School in Penang) ref: http://infopedia.nl.sg/articles/SIP_1511_2009-11-30.html); and also the founder and minister of Welesley Church Penang(formerly FitzGerald Memorial Church) from 1891-1895.
Rev DD Moore was from Prince Edward Island(PEI), Canada.
Prince Edward Island (PEI) is a Canadian province consisting of an island of the same name, as well as other islands. The maritime province is the smallest in the nation in both land area and population (excluding the territories). The island has a few other names: "Garden of the Gulf" referring to the pastoral scenery and lush agricultural lands throughout the province; and "Birthplace of Confederation", referring to the Charlottetown Conference in 1864, although PEI did not join the confederation itself until 1873 when it became the seventh Canadian province.
Charlottetown is a Canadian city. It is both the largest city on and the provincial capital of Prince Edward Island, and the county seat of Queens County.
1925 - The United Church was founded in 1925 as a merger of four Protestant denominations: the Methodist Church of Canada, the Congregational Union of Ontario and Quebec, two-thirds of the congregations of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and the Association of Local Union Churches

1879 MOORE, D.D., M.A. was ordained in 1879.
1881 In 1881 he was living with his parents in Charlottetown, his age on the census given as 25.
1888-1889 In 1888 he was Methodist Minister for Cornwall, Prince Edward Island, Canada
1889-1890 Rev. D. D. Moore, M. A. left Methodist Church at Charlottetown. PEI, Rev. Benjamin. H. Balderston who come from the same place, went to Singapore
The Methodist Mission sent two missionaries, Rev Daniel D More, Rev Benjamin H. Balderston to Penang to start Anglo Chinese School in Penang. ACS(now known as MBS), Penang opened by Rev. B. H. Balderston on 28th May 1891 at Carnarvon St, in July. Rev. Daniel. D. Moore join the school later. But by end the year, there were 60 students( Earnest Lau, 2008)
'IT WAS in the year 1891 that Mission Conference decided to extend the education work to the girls. Mr Moore almost at once began to visit in wealthy Chinese homes. His desire was that the bright little girls should be taught as well as their brothers. He soon became acquainted with a prominent Chinese citizen, Mr Cheah Teck Soon, whose sister was persuaded to have her little girls taught with their brothers.
Rev. D.D. Moore conducted the first English Evening Service at the Penang Town Hall in July. Later the English Service moved to a rented home for missionaries. The first Sacramental Service was conducted by Dr. J.C. Floyd in August for 8 persons. The English Service moved to the Armenian church in November. Sunday School began and the church started with 3 members.
1892 - Rev. D. D. Moore open MGS in 1892. So a small private school was begun in No. 1 Penang Road, where the missionaries lived. There were only 2 pupils and the school was in Northam Road. Thus began the first 110 years. Miss Emma Norris was the first teacher(Note: She may be the wife of Rev DD Moore). Later on, Mrs Young, a widowed lady, came into the work of the Penang Mission. She played the organ for the Sunday services that were held in the old Armenian church. Mr Moore, finding how capable Mrs Young was, persuaded her to take charge of the school which was held in the home of Mr Teck Soon in Farquhar Street. Soon after, other children joined. Mrs Young later become Mrs. G. F. Pykett.
Note: There was a report that Dr Benjamin Franklin West (b. 22 April 1858, Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - d. 2 July 1933, Seattle, Washington, USA) was actually the one who set up the Anglo-Chinese Girls School in Penang in 1892 (today known as the Methodist Girls School in Penang) ref: http://infopedia.nl.sg/articles/SIP_1511_2009-11-30.html. May be it was because Rev DD Moore's wife was the first teacher.
1893 - Rev. B. H. Balderston Return to Canada due to illness. Rev D.D. Moore, started English Service at Priory in Northern Road (a garage for the Runneymede Hotel).
Mrs Young did all she could in making the school attractive and also in visiting Chinese homes. The school grew to twenty pupils, when the missionaries moved to a large house by the sea named "The Priory". This home meant much to our Penang work in those early days. With the Chinese lady's consent, the girls' school was moved to "The Priory", where it became more stable and continued to grow. Of the religious teaching at this time, Bishop Thoburn remarked, "Everyday is a Sunday School here."
1894 - Rev G.F. Pykett came to Penang, where he and Mrs Young were married in January 1894. Mr Moore writes in his first report from Penang: Mrs. G. F. Pykett became the first principal of ACGS(now MGS, Penang).
1895 - The Wednesday Parish Meeting of Wesley Church Penang began. Rev D.D. Moore chaired the 1st meeting. Rev. D. D. Moore left the school, ACS Penang in 1895. Rev Albert J. Amery take over as pastor of Wesley Church Penang from Rev DD Moore in 1897, and the English Service moved to Penang ACS new building.
Note: It was presumed that Rev DD Moore left Penang in 1895, and it may be correct as there was no mention of replacement of minister in the history of Welesley Church Penang, in 1896 the name of minister was left vacant(http://www.wesleypenang.org/history.htm). The church may not have minister since Rev DD Moore left in 1895.
1901 - Some time before 1901, D.D. Moore was appointed to a mission in British Columbia, which became with the building of a church in 1902, the (Anglican) parish of All Saints, Mission City, British Columbia. He had joined the Anglican mission.
Note: The Town of Mission City had an interesting beginning as a land promotion. The town's core commercial properties and residential streets were auctioned off at the "Great Land Sale" of 1891, with buyers brought in via the CPR mainline from Vancouver as well as from Eastern Canada. Some of the early houses and commercial buildings were, in fact, specifically designed to be reminiscent of small towns in southern Ontario in order to encourage buyers. Hailed at the time as a new metropolis, the fledgling town's location at the junction of the Canadian Pacific Railway mainline with a northward extension of the Burlington Northern Railroad brought name suggestions that included East Vancouver and North Seattle. The name Mission City was chosen due to the site's proximity to the historic St. Mary's Mission of the Oblate order just east of town, which was founded in 1868.

That pew was for Frank's angels who had looked after him during his long life. The book mention about All Saints Anglican Church in Mission city. Did they know Rev DD Moore?)
3. Old church could find new role, http://www.bclocalnews.com/vancouver_island_central/cowichannewsleader/news/99287394.html
Brief history of Auld Kirk:
• Built as All Saints Church in 1913 on a hill overlooking the lake’s north end by the son of the first clergyman, Rev. Jack Aitken. Parishioners climbed a trail up the slope for services.
• Cut into sections and moved to Shawnigan village in 1938, where a belfry was added.
• Later, when the congregation joined the Cobble Hill church, All Saints was put up for sale with the stipulation it could be used for arts, antiques or books but not food services or housing.
• In 1983, Frank and Nancy Roseborough of Victoria and Shawnigan bought the property.
• After renovations and installation of a new bell from Ontario, the former church opened as a gallery for local work.
Is it the same old All Saints Anglican Church that Rev DD Moore ministered in 1902?.
