I wrote to you a while back wondering if our Moores might be connected
anyway....at the time we didn't think so. I just received my
social security application and it lists her parents names. Ada
Myers and Phillip Harrison Moore. I was searching on Genforum and saw a
posting by you re: Hiram Moore and found a Harrison Phillip Moore that
married an Ada G. Myers. YEAH!!!! I think there must be a connection.
grandmothers name was Elvira Anne Moore, b.3 Mar1900 d. 27Dec1997.
She was born in Dufur. She also had a brother named Hugh and a sister
both had the last name Moore. Ada later married a Shields. I don't
a divorce involved or a death. Let me know if you can shed any light on
research. Thanks, Meridith Keyes

Hello fellow researchers!
My aunt recently sent me copies of dozens of unidentified photos that came from an old family album. Many of them have photographers marks showing they were made in locations such as West Liberty, Mt Pleasant, Logan, Denmark and Fort Madison. Those are our only clues as to who these individuals might be. We're hoping other researchers of these areas and of surnames such as TULL, STONER, KIRKPATRICK, and LYLE might recognize someone amongst these pictures. There's sure to be Tull and Stoner relatives, but likely some friends and neighbors as well. Please take a look at:
Please use the numbers corresponding to the photos in question when writing to me about them. I'll be happy to share a high resolution email copy of any photos anybody identifies.

My George Harris, was born abt. 1813 in NC. (one census shows VA).
He married Mary Crose in 1838 in Tippecanoe, Indiana.
This family lived in McLean Co., IL for a time. Relatives in Henderson Co.
They had the following children:
Eliza Jane b. 1839 (m. Mr. Lowden?)
Lucinda b. 1841 (m. Carter Ferguson)
Delila b. 1844 (m. William Brown)
John b. 1846 -went to the west coast, we don't know if he stayed or not.
Mary b. 1847 (m. Mr. Todd)
Millie b. 1848 ( m. Mr. WIlkes)
George A. b. 1849 -went to the west coast--Oregon area or Northern
Elizabeth (Mary) b. 1850 (m.Wm A. Emmerson)
George Roland b. 1855 (my ggrandfather). - went to Oklahoma with his wife
Nancy b. 1859/1860
This family went to Iowa around 1850
and is found in Warren and Lucas Counties.
Mary died sometime after the last child was born. The children were all
sent to different homes in Lucas Co., IA . At least one of the girls was
married in McLean Co., IL and two others were married in Henderson County.
The rest are lost to us.
The atlas lists head of household, spouse, children, farm acreage, whether
they rent or own the land, section, township, and nearest town or mailing
address. If they rent, it lists the property owner. Each township also has
a plat map showing the location of the farms.

Thank you so much!! I now have a first name for my husbands ggrandma Myer.
Mary . How wonderful. I recognized the children's name right away.
I'm not sure if the others are connected yet cause I haven't had time to
digest it. I can't thank you enough for this find.
Is it possible to get photocopies of these pages. do they give any other
information on the people. I know that some atlas' only list names whereas
other give some personal info.
thank you again.
