Notes: Downhome Pensioners of 1883 Laurel Co KY #156, 688 there is listed a John C. Moore of London: dis/lungs $8 (date? unclear). Photo of John C. Moore Com K 7th KY Infantry at http://www.rootsweb.com/~kycrrsek/vetspholau.htm.

Notes: Mt Echo newspaper, Laurel Co KY, March 1880
"John B. Moore was part of the March 1880 petit Jury in Laurel Circuit Court."

Notes: Mt Echo Sept 1884
"Marriage of John C. Moore to Mrs. Tennessee McDaniel (This is probably James Campbell Moore)

Sandy, most of my notes are not authenticated and I have the following sources for diffeent or maybe the same John Moore. I assumed he was son of Hiram Moore. I do know that Hiram C. Moore, his son Jerome G Moore and Jno. C. Moore were all in Company K in Sept 22, 1861 at Camp Dick Robinson, Kentucky ; 7th kentucky Volunteer Army Infantry. These are the other notes I have found for a John Moore. Dont know if all apply. Get back to me on this.
Bev

Notes: 1879 Mt Echo born 30 April 1876 Monroe Moore alive to John Moore and Martha Mullins (there is also the same son listed as son of Robert Moore and Martha Mullins??)

Notes: There is a John/Jno C. Moore listed as a private in Company K 22 Sept 1861; Camp D R in Kenutcky; 7th Ky infantry (Camp Dick Robinson)

My Reply:
Bev:

Thanks for all the info - I was happy to have that link to the Down Home site - hadn't seen it before!

I think any reference to a John C. is probably the son of Moses Moore and Alcie Elmore. Here's my notes:

7th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry
Moore, Hiram C. Sgt K 22 Sep 61
Moore, James B. Sgt K 22 Sep 61
Moore, James E. Cpl F 22 Sep 61
Moore, Jerome G. Pvt K 22 Sep 61
Moore, Jno. C. Pvt K 22 Sep 61
My Notes: Jerome G is probably son of Hiram C. Moore. John C. is probably John Campbell Moore, son of Moses and Alcie. James Moore, son of Hiram Moore was born in 1849 (1860 census records) - he would only be 12 years old in 1861 and James was born abt 1853 - he was too young also,

I'm going to leave the marriage of Tennessee McDaniel to John Campbell Moore in my database.

Were you able to find the source for Hiram's wife? I can't find any backup on that marriage but I haven't spent that much time looking yet.

Hope this helps,

Thanks!
Sandy

Kentucky Death Index:
William Moore 10 June , 1923 Jcksn age: 72

Ronda - I found this family in Rockcastle Co and I can't find any database references to them. It looks like his wife was Catherine Milburn. I have a strong feeling this is the same William because Catherine is living with Thomas Forbes in 1860 and the Forbes family was closely connected to Lemuel Moore. Thomas Forbes was the son of John (Jr.) and Ann Forbes of Laurel Co. John Forbes Jr. was the son of John Forbes Sr. born in Shenandoah VA Aug 25 1879. If your William Moore was married to Martha Overbay and Telitha Bustle (for sure) then we may not be researching the same William Moore. However, Catherine could have died young and Wm may have remarried. William and Catherine were married in Rockcastle Co:

Note: The Forbes family was closely connected to the Lemuel Moore family-lived 2 doors away from him in 1850.
Hezekiah Smallwood married Nancy Forbes and Hezekiah was the brother of Mary Margaret Moore's husband, Elisha. Mary Margaret Moore was Lemuel Moore's daughter or gr-daughter.

QUESTION FOR MARY ANN: Do you know how Thomas Forbes was related to Hugh Forbes????

Thanks!

Hi Sandra, I am looking at my William's Marriage License to my great grandmother and his mother was born in Laurel County KY that is probably no help to you but I was looking on the marriage record for any other info that might help. It also says William was born in Laurel County so that place's James in Laurel County around 1850. Do you think some of his siblings could have been there too?

I am in search of my ggrandfather's parents and siblings.
His name is William F. Moore and was born 1850-51 and died June 10,1923. Willaim married at least twice and had several children by both wives. His first wife was Martha Overbay and they had the following children to my knowledge.

William's second wife was Tertha Lilitha (Tilitha) Bustle
who's parents were James and Melvina French Bustle.
William and Tilitha were married May 30,1889 and had the following children: Myrtle,Claude,Flaurdie,Fitz U. "Lee"
George Dewey,Gus,Jess and Agnus. If you know of any information on any of these people please email me and let's make a connection. Family is a good thing to have.

William married (1) Martha L. (parents unverified) OVERBAY, daughter of John C. OVERBEY and Elizabeth. Martha was born about 1866 in Kentucky.

There was a Martha Overbay in Laurel Co and in Rockcastle Co born about the same time. Since William was in Laurel Co, it's most likely that the Martha in Laurel Co is the one who married him.

I saw your database on rootsweb and wondered if Martha Overbay, dau of Preston Overbay and Malinda Cope might be the person I'm looking for. A Martha Overbay married William F. Moore probably in Laurel or Rockcastle Co KY. William was born Aug 3 1850 in Laurel Co KY and died Jun 10 1923. We have no information on his wife Martha except her last name. Do you think she could the same person?
Thanks!

Email from Ronda:
Sandy, I do not have anything other that William and Martha had at least one child together and his name was Albert (Pall) Moore and he died in 1956 in Mt Vernon KY area . Let me know if this helps I have been searching for her for a long time. Ronda

Email from Ronda re: marriage of Martha and William:
Sandy, I have the obit form the paper on Pall Moore and I saw the marriage license at a courthouse somewhere but I am not able to remember where. It seems like it was in Mt Vernon but I have not been able to locate it since. I didnít get a copy then I thought I would get it later. I have learned if you have it in your hands COPY it then.

This lilitha is my great grandmother. Her given name was Teretha Lilitha and she was known as Tilitha.

Tilitha was the second wife of William F. Moore. He states on his marriage record this is his second marriage. He had a whole set of children before they married and then they had a set after they married. Ronda

Betty Jane Branson, Mary's granddaughter, recalls knowing Mary in her childhood. Mary was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis in her later years and was confined to a wheel chair. Betty recalls that Mary lived with them on several occasions. Betty's father, Gus Oren, loved to tell jokes and Betty remembers her grandmother laughing uproariously at Oren's joke telling. She was quite a sight to see, with no teeth, laughing loudly, and slapping her hands on the arms of her wheel chair. She was quite a character.

Did Rachel remarry?
Name: LEROY STARBUCK
Spouse: RACHEL [Mrs] SMALLWOOD
Marriage Date: 07 Nov 1878
County: Clark
State: MO

Rachel was from Montevallo, MO:
The year 1863 was "the most woeful" in Vernon County's history. "Back and forth into Missouri rode the Kansas Jayhawkers; back and forth into Kansas rode the Missouri guerrillas; back and forth into loyal Cedar rode the Vernon Bushwhackers; back and forth into rebel Vernon rode the Cedar militia." Montevallo was burned by Iowa troops on April 14th, 1862. Farms were burned and pillaged. Men and boys were slain. Normal life, schooling, churches and law courts, had become a dim memory. The few families who hadn't fled south, struggling to carry on in a normal way, "had a hard time of it. They were preyed upon by both sides".
