Re: Jessie May Moudy
The "Roe" MOUDY of whom you speak is, most likely, Monroe W MOUDY.

Monroe was born @1861 in Indiana [probably Montgomery County] to Peter and Nancy Jane (BANNON) MOUDY. [Peter MOUDY is a brother of my ancestor, Nancy Jane (MOUDY) OCHELTREE.]
I don't have the 1870 census at hand but Monroe appears in his father's household on 4 June 1880 in Paris, Edgar Co IL listed as a 19 year old barber.
20 January 1920, he and his wife Lizzie are listed in the census for Fort Scott,Bourbon Co KS as are Jessie and son Wesley Reed MOUDY.
I was unaware that Jessie may have been adopted but I do not think that Lizzie was Wesley's mother. It's likely that she was a second or third wife.
Can provide additional information on this family and Monroe's ancestry if you believe I am on the right track.
