Biographical history

Publius Virgillius Elmore was born in the United States of America in 1789. When he moved to Belleville, he worked as a Deputy Surveyor to chart Hastings County as it became incorporated. He had a significant role in forming Hastings, as demonstrated when he started surveying and constructing roads in Lake Township in North Hastings. In an 1829 petition, he signed for Prince Edward County (where he resided) to become a district. In the 1830s, P.L.S. John Emerson was articled to Elmore'. Elmore married a local woman in Shannonville, Ontario - but was widowed prior to 1853. He died in 1857 and was buried in Belleville.
