I haveSpencer & Mary Sweeney both b. abt. 1835 in Pike Co., KY.Mary's mother Susan J. Moore lived with the family in 1870 afterher husband's Civil War death. By 1880, there is no trace of any of them in KY or in VA where other family went.
After two years of searching, I have just found Susan Moore applying for her husband's pension in 1883 in Alabama, and in 1890 in Louisiana.
Would prefer a full lineage on this family, but will settle for mere clues.Mary Moore Sweeney was a first cousin to my great-grandfather.
