Moore--Looking to break through a wall

Moore--Looking to break through a wall

Posted: 1363245981000
Classification: Query

I had such a good response last time so I thought I'd try again. I'm looking for information for Robert Lee Moore and family. Here's what I have so far. He appears in the following US Censuses: 1910, 1920, 1930 & 1940. He was born about 1865 in Missouri and lived in New Madrid from around 1910-1930, perhaps earlier. His father was born in MO, TN or KY (depending on which census report you look at) and his mother was born in KY. He had 6 children: Arthur Price Moore, Harriet (Moore) Shaw, Pink Martin Moore, Liddie Moore, James T. Moore & Bruce Moore. Per Arthur Price Moore's obituary, his mother was Alice Rebecca Hoggard. I have no additional information for her. It appears that Robert married Effie Seals on 9/13/1903. That would make Effie the mother to the remaining 5 children. I have no information for Liddie, James T. & Bruce beyond what is reported on the 1920 census and Robert's granddaughter has no recollection of them. Per the 1940 census, Robert had moved from Missouri to Iowa with his daughter, Harriet and her family.

Effie appears in the 1910, 1920 & 1930 US Censuses. Her age varies per census report, being born about 1887, 1888 or 1892. She was born in TN and both parents were born in TN as well. Robert & Effie were married in New Madrid, MO.

If anyone has any additional information on the people mentioned here, or their family line, or can refer me to resources, I would appreciate it. I would love to find any decendants from this line, too.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Thank you, Thomas, for reviewing the information and putting so much work into it! The 1940 census listed, is a different family; my ancetor was listed in the 1940 census as Arthur Moore. To answer your question, Price died in Poplar Bluff and was buried in his hometown of Portageville.

Thanks, again. Take care.
