Willie Clyde McClelland Moore
Birth: Mar. 9, 1896
Bulloch County
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 14, 1959
Upson County
Georgia, USA

One of ten children of William Madison McClelland and Manie Veranda Glisson McClelland, Willie Clyde McClelland Moore was born March 9, 1896 in Ivanhoe (Briar Patch), Bulloch County, Georgia. She married Whiteford Smith Moore, Sr., and they moved to Ludowici, Long County, Georgia to farm. They had two children: Ernestine Lee Moore Marsh and Whiteford Smith Moore, Jr. and three surviving grandchildren. As a child, Clyde was mostly educated by her Cone cousins who were teachers. As a child, she remembered going with her parents and siblings by wagon to the Farmer's Market in Savannah to sell their produce. The trip took two days each way. She was especially close to her sister Nevada McClelland Bell, and their children visited each other for weeks at a time each summer, spending part of it in Ludowici and part in Savannah where the Bells lived. Clyde died of cancer on April 14, 1959 at her son's home in Thomaston, Upson County, Georgia at age 63. She is buried at Baggs Cemetery in Ludowici.

Like her father, Clyde was Scots-Irish. Like her mother, Clyde's Native American line goes back to the Coree Indians who lived on the Atlantic coast along the Virginia/North Carolina border. By the late 17th century, the Coree population had declined due to disease and war. During the Tuscarora War, some of the surviving Coree fled south seeking refuge among the Cheraw Indians. Later some surviving Cheraws, remnants of other Indian groups, whites, and African Americans became the basis of the contemporary Lumbee Indians.

Most of this information comes from her nieces, Kathleen Bell Neely and Lois Bell Myatt. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know. Thanks to Janice Cathcart for establishing this memorial.
