Bio and Links
One warm weekend in July, 1985, Aunt Sabra and I were sitting on a bed in Aunt Emma Lou's house. We had spent the day at a memorial service for Emma Lou, and were now quietly looking at pictures and reminiscing. Emma Lou had several pictures of everyone in the family, displayed on the wall in frames obviously chosen with great care.

"Emma Lou was always the one who kept us together," Aunt Sabra said. "From the time Mother passed away until now. She always brought us together, kept us in touch." She looked down, paused, and then said, "I don't want that to end now that Emma Lou isn't here."

Sharing geneology information is the only way I know to repay the many distant cousins that I have met over the decades who have shared with me. Because of them, our family roots are deeper and our family tree has sprouted a few new branches as we've discovered new lines. My sincere thanks to my "new" cousins Dorothy, Raylene, Rex, Bud, and Helen for their help and sharing.

Anyone with more information about any of my postings is encouraged to contact me as well as to share by adding to the posting. I hope that any information I provide can help others find their relatives; hopefully, they'll be a relative of mine.

RE: Re: Find A Grave Photos
Thanks for use of photos. Peneirra Tennessee Moser Hamby is my 1st cousin 3X removed thru her mother Mary Adeline Swanson who married Francis Marion Moser. Mary Adeline Moser is sister to Ruth C. Swanson(my 2nd great grandmother) who married Andrew Jackson Moser 'Blind Jack'. Francis Marion Moser is the son of John Paul Moser 'Old Johnnie' and Mary Sheets. John Paul Moser is brother to mu 3rd great grandfather Peter Moser who married Maria Magdalena Balliet. So this means there is a double connection in the Moser-Swanson marriages. Hope this is not confusing. wrmcferrin

Moore Family in MO
Hi Dana,

Noticed your Moore posts on FindaGrave in MO. I have a line of Moore's in the Greene & Christian County areas. GGGGrandfather was Edward "Ned" Moore b. 1806, Lincoln, KY d. 1901 Brookline, Greene Co. MO. His wife was his double first cousin, Elizabeth Moore Moore, b. 1809 Lincoln, KY d. 1843 Benton, MO.

Their parents were Moore brothers, Jonathon & Samuel and their mothers were Sarah and Elizabeth "Betsy" Berry.

Both the Berry's and Moore's were originally from NC.

Does any of this fit with your Moore lines? You can reach me at Please put MOORE/BERRY in the subject line.

I just have a question for you. My Gr gr grandpa is also named James Knox Polk Moore #32271871. Not the same as your. But what I was wondering is do you have any idea where the "Knox Polk" came from? It's an odd name so I figure it must have been someone important at some time or another. Thanks Debi Nichols - Moore

RE: Sue Ann Wheeler - 60590224
There is an edit button on each page at the upper top right. That's what it is for. That way I can be sure I am dealing with the correct listing and don't have to go through my listing to find it.
I don't work with corrections left on my message board.

RE: Thank you!
You are very welcome. I am assisting a person who requested the photo and thought that you might like to have that information. We also have a copy of the cemetery listing thanks to a member of the cemetery board. Let me know if I can be of any assistance in the future. -- dennis
