Some of the information genealogical informaiton I have on the family of Thomas Robinson Moorman and Lucy McKay is unproven, that is, it comes from an individual who could not provide a source.However, I do have a note which says that a "Moorman book" in the possession of Breckinridge County Archivist, Virginia Hinton, says that Thomas' sons, Hamilton and Edgar V. founded the Moorman Manufacturing Company in Gorin, Missouri and that the company subsequently moved to Quincy, Illinois.
As to genealogical information, here is what I have:
Thomas Robinson Moorman, b. 28 Jul 1849 in Hardin Co., KY to Pendleton Chapman Moorman and Susan G. Robinson; married 28 March 1872 in Big Spring, Breckinridge Co, KY to Lucy McKay daughter of Dr. James H. McKay and Lucy M. Rawlings.Lucy was born 26 Aug 1852 in Hardin Co., KY and died 5 Dec 1917 in Quincy, Illinois.She was preceeded in death by her husband, Thomas, who died 27 October 1928 in Big Spring, Breckinridge Co., KY.
Thomas and Lucy had the following children:
Hamilton Chapman Moorman b. 3 September 1873 in Big Spring, KY, married 10 April 1894 to Mable Clare Stith, died 20 April 1937.
Lizzie Moorman b. 7 Jan 1875
William Clay Moorman b. 21 Dec 1876 in Big Springs, married 1900 in Hardin Co. KY to Lilly Hursh, d. 12 May 1927 in Big Spring.

I hope this is helpful to you.I have the ancestors of these individuals if you are interested.I would appreciate receiving any additional information you can provide on this family.Or, hearing from anyone with Moormans or Robertsons in KY, as I am gathering materials for a family history.
