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.
