In an attempt to find the roots of my John Samuel MOORE I have tried to trace all the KY/VA MOOREs in the Cass County MO 1860 Census. Here is a summary of what I know and don't know. Can anyone fill in the blanks?
1860 Cass County Census:
Sugarcreek Township pg 742... C.F. MOORE
This is Cornelius MOORE m. Nancy WEAVER 18 Jun 1840 Pulaski Co KY. Cornelius is the son of Stephen F. MOORE and his line is from Green Co KY. I *think* I have this family nailed down.
Sugarcreek Township pg 764... Isaac MOORE b. abt 1812 KY with wife Martha A. and children Sarah J., Mary E., Louisa A., July Ann, and Joseph W. I don't know who this is yet or where in KY he came from.
Grand River Township pg 835... George MOORE m. Mary Jane CAMPBELL abt 1840 Garrard Co KY. Who were his parents and/or siblings? Note: George and Mary are the parents of Caroline MOORE, the future Carry (spelled
"Carrie" in 1860 Census) NATION.
Grand River Township pg 836/837... George E. MOORE b. abt 1806 VA with wife Anne M. b. abt 1820 KY and son John S. b. abt 1842 KY. Who are they?
Pleasant Hill pg 912... H.T. MOORE b. abt 1819 KY with wife Nancy H. and children Dulcena, Frank M., Margaret L., and Kate. This is probably Henry T. MOORE and Nancy GRAVES. All I know about them is that they were in Nicholas Co KY abt 1840.
Big Creek Township pg 928... Thomas THOMAS with wife Nancy McCRUTCHEON and mother and father James and Sarah THOMAS. They are from Pendleton Co KY. My John S. MOORE b. 1836-1838 KY was living with them in 1860 as a farmer with no property, but $1640.
Big Creek Township pg 928... Robert MOORE b. abt 1813 KY with (and I *love* this) 34yo wife, 15yo daughter, 13yo son, 11yo son, 9yo son, 7yo daughter. (That's right, no names, all born in KY).
Can anyone add any information about these families? (With the exception of Cornelius and the whole Green Co KY crew).
