Query:I am searching for the following MOOR families: Samuel Howard MOOR and his wife, Mary Anna KARRICK. Mary died 26 Mar 1902 in Humboldt, Allen Co., KS. They had the following children: Altha MOOR, Molly MOOR, Jef Davis MOOR, Daniel Howard MOOR, and Benjamin Franklin MOOR.

Daniel had eight of his children in Allen County (Humboldt, Chanute, Iola) and he died in Humboldt on 18 May 1919. His wife, Mary Elizabeth DEAL was born in Humboldt on 29 Jan 1864. I have most of their children's information if you are related to this family!

Benjamin had 5 children, but I am unsure of their birth places. He married Melissa C. BISHOP. I have his children's names...but nothing else.

My ancestor, Jeff Davis, married Rosantha NASH. Although she was born in IA, her family lived and farmed in Kansas for over 20 years and her parents had 9 of their 15 children there. I believe Jeff and Rosantha met and married while their families were living in Kansas.

Please help!! If you would like to look at the information I do have, please visit the following site: http://www.uftree.com/UFT/WebPages/heather/MOOR/index.htm

Query: Cathi,
Do you know who your John's parents were? I have a lot of information on the Hugh & Hannah BRADY ancestry from PA. My grandfather James Sherman Brady came from PA to KS in the 1870s because an uncle of his was already there. Was it your John?

Hoping to hear from you . . .
