Posey County
Indiana, USA
Death: May 19, 1869
White County
Illinois, USA

Louisa was the eldest daughter of Wilson and Elizabeth (Downen) Jones and was born in 1817, shortly after his parents married (March 14, 1815) and had established a farm in Marrs Township, Posey County, Indiana. Louisa came from a large family of twelve children, most of whom farmed in southwestern Indiana when they grew up and married. On November 28, 1832 a very young Louisa married John Moore, son of an early prominent Posey County farmer who settled in the county around 1810. Listed in the U S Census for 1850 indicated John was 38 years of age and Louisa was 33. Also listed were seven children living at home. Nearby his parents had a farm and seven of her brothers and sisters were living at home. The farm next to John and Louisa was owned by Jeremiah Cash Givens (my great grandfather) and his wife Sarah Ella (Parks) Givens. The next farm listed on the census was owned by Rachel Givens (a widow and Jeremiah's mother). Nearby was another farm run by Louisa's uncle Joel Jones. Marrs Townshp is just northeast of the town of Mount Vernon in the southwestern tip of Indiana. By 1860 the couple were still on the farm they had established shortly after their marriage. John was 48, Louisa was 43, and the following children were living at home: Harriet (20), James (18), Virgil (15), Enoch (13), Levi (11), Angelina (8), and John (6). A baby girl by the name of Angetine West(5/12) was also living with them. The two oldest daughters, Martha J., and Elizabeth, most likely had already married and were not living at home at this time. The farm was valued at $3,500. One source mentions that they had a son named Ernest. In the late 1860s the family moved to White County, Illinois. Louisa died May 19, 1869 and was buried in the Shipley Cemetery, Burnt Prairie Township near the town of Carmi. John and his children farmed property located in Enfield Precinct of White County in the l870s. Their sons Enoch and John Jr. farmed next to each other in Burnt Prairie Townships in the 1880s.
