I've "rescued" an old photograph of Hallie MOORE which was taken at the Vogt
Studio in Leon, IA sometime in the 1890's or early 1900's. Hallie appears
to be in her 20's or 30's at the time it was taken. Based on limited
research I was able to gather the following information regarding Hallie and
Hallie V. or B. MOORE was b. Jun 1876 in Leon, IA to parents William Robert
or Russell MOORE (b. Sept 1850 in Fayette Co. OH-d. 1926) and Sarah Jane
SMITH (b. Aug 1847 in Indiana-d. 1928). Hallie was one of 7 children born
to this couple including, Hallie; Clarence O. (1878-1878); Bessie May (b.
1879); Rolla or Rollie Winford or Windford (1881-1949); Earl Carleton (b.
1884); Elsie Marie (b. 1888); and Hazel J. (1894-1969). Hallie married
Charles Grant BIDDISON (1860-1928 - son of John BIDDISON and Nancy MARTIN)
on 9 Jun 1917 in Albia, IA. and was teaching at the Leon School in 1900.
Hallie died in 1963. Her sister Hazel married into the FINN Family and
sister Bessie married into the BRYANT Family with sister Elsie Marie married
to Mr. STEPHENS.
