Jacob Aldridge, Rice Troxell, William R. Moore, and Druzilla Rice all have KY as there place of birth, Except for the Jacob, they all came from Henry County, KY.

Rebecca Moore Aldridge and Rice Troxell were first cousins, both grandchildren off Col William M. Rice
Jacob Aldridge may also have coonections in the same county

For some reason they came to McDonald County from Fulton County to get married.

Rice Troxell died after marrying Rebecca they may have had some children. There is a Rice Troxell in the CA. 1920 and 1930 census, born in Illinios. He too young to be the Rice that married the Rebecca. Rebecca Moore Aldridge Troxell has married a Watson by 1900.

I have info on the family of Rice Troxell, and the Druzilla Rice Moore and some info on William R, Moore will gladly share.

Anybody in McDonald Co have connection to the above named people
