I am looking for information on my Great-Grandfather whose name was James Hassler Moore. He married Helen Moore from a different set of Moores! I have searched high and low for anything on him, but have failed to find anything more than his marriage certificate. Please email me @ email@example.com......thank u!
I have a history on Louisiana Moores if anyone is interested. I have an article from 1976 that was likely from the Farmerville Gazette. My grandfather was James William Moore and was raised in Shilo community aka Bernice Louisiana. Robert Moore who lived in Scotland married Rosanna McClelland from Antrim County Ireland over 200 years ago. She was with the group A.R. Presbyterians. They settled in Newberry South Carolina. It is believed the Moores emigrated from Scotland to America. In 1799 Billy the Wagon Maker Moore was born in Newberry South Carolina. William and Sarah Tubb were married in 1821 and left for Perry County, Alabama. Four of their sons settled in Union Parish Louisiana in the Shiloh Community in 1849. The sister Rosanna was married to Governor Ruffin G. Pleasant. If anyone is interested in the history or article email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh how interesting! we currently reside in Louisiana! My fathers family, however, hails from Ireland

Lots of free educational information for Moore, Muir, More, etc...
Never knew much about my dad's family from Louisiana, except my grandfather, Wm. Rob. Moore, supposedly died around 1920 from the Spanish Flu epidemic. His widow, children and their stepfather moved to Los Angeles about 1917. Was told I was of English descent.
My mothers father had Indian ancestry. Could be that as well

I am Carmon great granddaughter to Margret Moore who's family emigrated from Ireland when she was young to america were she moved to Canada to meet my great grandfather Par LaBar.
I am Gail Elizabeth Moore and my father was George Stephen Moore. I do not know much about my father's family except that he and his parents emigrated from England (Bournemouth area perhaps?) to Canada in the early 1900's - likely around 1915, and ended up in the Toronto area. He had a sister named Verna and a half brother names Michael. I'd love to find out more is there are any "connections" out there. It is interesting to read about the Moore name....I believe my ancestors came from Ireland originally.
I am Lenora Moore, born from Douglas McCarther Moore of Charleston, South Carolina, USA. His dad's name was Tallman Moore and his mother's maiden name was Reddish. We all look very irish, with all of having blue eyes and blonde or brown hair. We are very fair-skinned people and fit the description of the Moores originating from Ireland who later moved to UK and beyond. I reside on the east coast of the USA. Cool site!

Harry Robert (Bob) Moore
My 5ggf, Samuel Moore, d June 1760, a pauper, in Cople Parish, Westmoreland Co. VA, m Jane Lamkin whos' family had land, and can be traced. I have his line complete down to me, but hit a wall, on his ancestry. Samuel had a contemporary, William Moore, recorded in the County, but there was no known blood line connection. I have done research in the Montross, VA, Family History Center, found many facts on Samuel's life, etc., and sent WEB inquiries to GenWeb, Roots, etc., sites for Samuel's origins, but without results over the past 20 odd years. Also, researched sites in G. Britain, and Ireland, and only found links for William Moore to English/Irish Peerage. If Samuel is related to William, it is not a 'conventional' family link. The only information about me in Salt Lake is what I put there myself. Any suggestions, please. F
My husband's family name is Moore, and he is tall, slender, dark hair and eyes, but their origin is American Indian. It is interesting to see the history of these names. My father's name was Moon, and my mother's maiden name was Sire' and she was French.
I have Moores in my family who are very swarthy looking (dark hair, eyes, skin) and I didn't really think they looked English or celtic. I have had a hard time tracing their heritage.
Very insightful!! my name is Moore and wondered about its origins.
