Not sure exactly where this is that she was born yet as I just got the papers from Tasmania will have to get some maps to look it up, but Elizabeth Cooper born Abt. 1810 Vandermonts Land, Austrailia who died in the 1870's in the United States I believe Iowa married a Joseph Bartlett Baldwin Wrightson Moore who was born Apr 1809 in BOston Massachusetts died Jan 21, 1902 Noble, Richland County, Illinois.
According to his obituary he was born in Boston Msaaschusetts and was a ships Captain according to what I have heard but can't proveand it was in the obituary. He went to Australia I was told to strike it rich somehow, and married Elizabeth Cooper there in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia Apr 15, 1839.
They had four of their five children there then returned, or came to the United States, and Iowa is the first location I have found for them so far. There they I believe had their 5th child though I am not sure yet if he was born here in the USA Or Tasmania.
I am looking for anyone related to these people and also looking for Elizabeth Cooper's parents, and or family as a letter from someone signed by her brother was signed Hugh McGinnis instead of Cooper I believe.So Iso am trying to figure out if it could be a stepbrother or brother-in-law or what since the last name wassn't Cooper.
Would be glad to share what I have mainly on Joseph Moore and the children with cousins. Also have more on the rest of the Moore family.
His obituary says:
Joseph Bartlett Baldwin Wrightson Moore died January 21, 1902 at the residence of E.W. Jewett ( Ason-in-law), in Noble Illinois, Richland County. Mr. Moore was born in Boston, Mass., in April 1809, educated at Cambridge, Mass. and began life early on the high seas where he remained for 25 years.He married in Melbourne, Australia, and accumulated a fortune there. (His marriage papers say married in Tasmania) He is survived by five children, four of which survived him,his wife dying in the 70's.He was the son of Sir William Henry Moore, triplett brother to Sir Wrightson and Sir John Moore, English Generals. He leaves four Children, twenty-one grandchildren and six great grandchildren to mourn their loss.
I worded it exactly like the paper printed it. It was the Olney Advocate January 31, 1902, thar's Olney Illinois, Richland County and the microfilm was at the college Genealogy part of the library.
I would love to hear form anyone related to these familys or anyone knowing about them.
