I am a descendant of Calvin MOORE and Hannah DOAN
I am looking for info about Calvin's father Samuel MOORE
I found him on the 1851 Census, but have had no luck any further back than that. i ALSO HAVE A NEWSCLIPPING OF AN INTERVIEW given by my Great Grandmother Cecilia Victoria MOORE noting we descend from a Spanish Countess from the Napoleonic Wars. Would love to sort that one out, if anyone is interested.
Here is a very heavily edited Gen Report on "what i think i know" subject to corrections as more source documentation is found.
