Elwood F. Moore, b. 1838, Ohio
I'm searching for information about my great great grandfather Elwood F. Moore. He was born in December 1838, somewhere in Ohio. His father was born in Ireland, and his mother in Virginia.

He lived most of his life in Pike County where he married first a woman named Samaria about 1865 right after the Civil War, and second Millie (Mary) Bradfield in 1885.
Elwood was a Sargent in the Army during the Civil War but I don't know much more than that about his service.
I think he died in about 1901 as his wife (Mollie) filed for widows benefits in that year.
Elwood had three children with Samaria:
Howard Bartley Moore, b. Nov. 1866 in Pike Co., Ohio (my great grandfather)
John Leslie Moore, b. abt 1868/69 in Pike Co., Ohio
Willis E. Moore, b. abt 1875/74 in Pike Co., Ohio
With Mollie he had two more children:
Myrtie L. Moore, b. Feb 1886 in Pike Co., Ohio
Earl F. Moore, b. Feb. 1893 in Pike Co., Ohio
The only information I have on Samaria is that she was born in about 1841/42 in Ohio. Her Father was born in Virginia and her Mother in Canada.
Does anyone have any idea of Samaria's maiden name and her parents? Also does anyone have any information about Elwood's parents? I can't seem to find either if them as children anywhere in Ohio.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
