I am looking for information on my g-grandmother, Mariah Louisa STANLEY MOORE. My g-grandfather, Levi MOORE died in VanZandt County in June of 1871. Sometime after that date Mariah moved to Bastrop County Texas. I found where she was married to James W. COOK on June 19, 1879. Mariah's mother was Lurana Clarenda SMITH STANLEY that married Reuben RANSOM about 1865, either in Burleson or Bastrop Counties. I believe she moved there to be close to her family. Mariah had two daughters and a grandson with her on the 1880 Bastrop census, which were: Ellen J. MOORE age 14 F; Clarinda A. MOORE age 11 F; Nathan M. MOORE g-son age 10 yrs. It listed Mariah's husband as Tobin COOK age 60, Laborer.
I would love to correspond with anyone that has a connection to or any information on any of the above named people. I have a lot of information on there life before 1880.
