|Debra L. Spence/Buchanan||RE: Rev. JR Moore and family|
You are more than welcome. Do you know that WVU (West Virginia University) Has a large genealogy library that is open to the public. I work for WVU in the College of Business & Economics and my building is over the hill for E. Moore Hall. It is one of the first three buildings every built by WVU. There is a lot of history on WVU on-line. If there is anything else I might be able to help you with just let me know. This is my hobby and I love doing this for people. Have a great day.

The best I can give you is between about 1882 and 1904. He and his family were living in IL in 1880; my great-aunt was born there in 1881, but my grandmother was born in Louisiana in 1882.
The 1904 cutoff is based on the fact that my grandmother graduated from high school in Louisiana that year and by 1904 the family was again living in IL but James was operating a studio in St. Louis.
I have no records from his studios, nor do I have any miscellaneous photos- everything I have is family photos. I might be able to give you a guess as to an approximate date for your photo if you post it on findagrave by the style of the cardboard it's mounted on by comparing it to family photos for which I can estimate a date judging by the approximate age of the person in it- in other words, if I have a photo that's on the same kind of mounting with the same style of lettering, etc. The older photos are mounted on a rather heavy piece of cardboard while later ones are more like the photos we're accustomed to today and are usually held in a paper frame with a cover.

|Evajean Chase||James Leonard's wife|
I will keep my eyes open for information on Lissa and let you know if anything shows up. I don't think we are related to J.L. two aunts married Wm. White (he was Uncle Bill twice). He married Arthur Selleck's sister Kate and then several years after he died he married Ella Murphy who was a sister to Arthur's wife Julia. That line of Whites came from Ohio, I think.

I had taken pictures of all the White graves in Elmwood Cemetery so it was just a matter of finding it this evening.
When I took the picture, I wondered if the other half of the stone was for his wife and why her name wasn't there? I wasn't sure which White family J Leonard belonged to. As near as I have been able to research there were about 4 different White families in this area. I have connections to one of them and another group were neighbors.
