Hi Marshall, Sorry It took me so long to respond. My information has John born in Illnois but it certainly can be wrong. William Moe and Kate Harper(the shimmier)married October 4,1885 near Boyd,Wasco County, Oregon They lived in Buena Vista, Polk County, Oregon until they died and they are buried there. I have (somewhere)pictures of their graves. Kates full name was Dorothy Catherine. Her grandmother Anna Gowdy came to oregon by wagon train in 1852. William and Kate had 6 children 1.Georgia Alma 2.David Wayne 3.Sarada Armilda 4.Thelma Ann 5.Alice Martha 6.William Ernest. I knew Thelma and Ernest. Ernest died about 15 years ago at 97 0r 98.Most all of the kids are buried around Buena Vista. I am not the most organized person in the world so if you bear with me I will scrape up moreinfo. for you on John. Somewhere I have a copy of a copy of a picture of john and Martha and some of their kids. Would you be interested. Just so I can get a mental picture of where I am writing to will you tell me where you are located.Also which child inparticular are you interested in.
