Dear 4th cousin David,
I was just about to post a query here to see if I could find some of the Wolfinbarger/Wolfenbarger descendants who are Moore relatives of mine, but you got here first. I have spelled the name as Wolfenbarger because that is how I have seen it spelled most often in various records. Apparently as with many names, it was spelled differently by different family members.
I have traced the line down to your great, grandfather Arlie Quincy Wolfinbarger and his brothers and sister, but had not found any of their descendants. And I have not found tombstones or obituaries for their parents.
Here is the previous generation as I currently have it recorded in my file on the descendants of Rodeham and Elizabeth (Gallahugh) Moore, who were the great grandparents of Mary Ann Tennessee (Moore) Hillhouse Wolfenbarger, Arlie's mother. I have a lot more data and records on the Moore line, and I, also, have data on the family and ancestors of Arlie's father, Tillman F. Wolfenbarger, both in Lawrence County, MO, (my "home" county) and in Grainger Co., TN, where many of my ancestral lines are from, also.
