Amelia,
I believe Ferdinand Moore`s parents were Samuel Moore & Melite Oliva. I`ve been trying to trace my 2nd greatgrandmother Mary Moore Morris (b. 1858) of Richland Parish & in the process have checked all Moores on the census there & in the parishes from which Richland was formed in the late 1860`s. I also came across a 1999 message from a Johnny Moore regarding Ferdinand`s parents. I`ll paste that & the census below. I exchanged e-mails with Mr. Moore in March of this year but he has not responded to the last e-mail I sent requesting further info. on this Moore family. I`ll space his e-mail address so It can`t be picked up by "bots" Just put it back together if you want to try to contact him. If you hear anything, please let me know!

My gggrandmother`s brother (at least I`m 99% sure he`s her brother!) William married Rosalie Epinnette in 1879. They lived in Monroe, LA.

Surnames: Moore, Duffey
I am tracking the Duffey/Moore families in Richland parish LA. My g-mother was Estelle Moore(Duffey), Her father Alexander(Alec, Alex) Moore---have traced to his father Ferdinand M. Moore married to Charlotta ( aka-Lottie) . 1880 census lists children, Alexander,Samuell, Roseanna E., Margaret A., Alonso and Andrew. Could this be the same line?

Hi Donna,

Yes, it is the same family. Ferdinand`s father was Samuel Moore. Ferdinand married Charlotte Eppinett. My Moores are probably not connected to Samuel & Ferdinand, although William Moore (my gggrandmother`s brother) married Rose Eppinett who was a niece of Charlotte. I believe Charlotte`s brother (half brother?) William was Rose`s father. I`ll give you some census records below. There are no census records for 1860 for these families; I think they either were missed or the records for the part of the Parish they lived in were lost. The 1850 for Samuel is in my other message.

You might want to contact Johnny Moore whose e-mail is in my other message. I still have not discovered my Moore line beyond my gggrandmother, Mary Moore b. 1858. The search has been very confusing as you can probably tell from the above info.!

An Eppinette Story RE the Mhoon Family in Lucknow, LA

Surnames: Eppinette (sic) Mhoon, Mohoon, Mohun
Thought I'd share this excerpt from a letter written by my Aunt: Anne Lobdell (Mhoon) Vinson in February 1979. ...according to Sarah Allain, a white man come to Lucknow (The Richland Parish plantation the Mhoon family owned between Clear Lake and the Bouef River) on a mule with two babies named Eppinette. He wanted Mr. Robert Mhoon to take one and Mr. Jim Mhoon to take one. I presume the mother had died or maybe there were too many children. Any way Mrs. Robert Mhoon said no but I presume Aunt Annie was real sympathetic so she took one. Cousin Sarah told me one time how she bathed and washed the baby to get her clean. The man’s name was Eppinette, so they named her Rowena Eppinette. But as I remember what transpired from hearing all about it was that Uncle Jimmie said he was not willing to give the Mhoon name to anyone unless they were born Mhoon. Anyway they loved her and brought her up as their own. Rowena was probably three or four years old when I was born (1899). She was sent to the State Normal School (where Louisiana at that time) trained teachers. At 16 she ran away and married Pat Mulhern a very nice boy whose parents lived near Alto. Anyway Uncle Jimmie gave them 100 acres of land at the end of Clear Lake and built them a home. He is dead but I think Rowena still lives in Rayville…

Thanks for sharing that, Bob. Very interesting! I`ll bet there`s a letter or paper somewhere in someone`s trunk that would tell me who my Mary Moore was. Wishful thinking, I guess.

The info you sent is such a help. Let me know if I can help you with anything...thanks again so much!! Donna Kaye

Very intresting story...My greatgrandparents (Moore) lived near Clear Lake, on what is now Moore Rd. I have found news articles that verify a slightly different story of a family story that an Eppinette stabbed my grandfather(Alex or Alec) Moore at a barn dance, possibly his brother-in-law. I am not able to find Annie Agnes (Abraugh or Byargeoun) who married Alex Moore in May 1883 on any census before 1900. Any ideas?
