I'm searching for Leah Moore, b. 1822 - NC, d. MO. She married Christian Charles L. Good b. TN, d. 1861, MO. They were parents of Nancy Elizabeth "Betty" Good (b. 19 Dec 1852, Marshfield, MO, died 09 Mar 1940, Rockwall TX). Other children were Martha J. Good b. 1850 - MO; Sarah A. Good, b. 1857 - MO, married Mr. Lackey, died near Waco, TX; and Mary A. Good, b. 1859, MO.
Christian Charles L. Good and Leah Moore Good died when their children were young ( CC Good died 1861, Leah Moore Good died 1859). Micajah Aldridge, who was married to Elizabeth Moore, was their guardian. Nancy Elizabeth "Betty" Good married Benjamin Shook 18 Nov 1869 in the house of Micajah Aldridge. They were married by Rev. Jacob Good.
"Betty" Shook is my great-great grandmother (her daughter, Daisy Florence Shook Bailey - my grandmother, Kathryn Bailey Allen, my mother). I'm Kathryn Allen Nelson.
Betty Shook was not allowed to speak with her granddaughter (Luci Nees) about her early life. Betty Shook lived with Elizabeth Shook Nichols and her husband, Clarence (?) in Chism, TX.
It's possible that Elizabeth Moore and Leah Moore were related. Family lore has it that Leah Moore came from England, but I've never seen documentation of her birth or family. I would appreciate any information that anyone might have related to Leah Moore. My mother, Kathryn Bailey Allen, died last October at 95. Her cousin, Lucy Nees, is still living (she was older than Mother), and is very curious about their grandmother's history, as am I.
