|My first genealogical search several years ago was for my GrGrGrandfather, Thomas Moore, who lived in Indiana (Warren or Vermillion CY) in the early 1800s.I'm still looking.Please help.He died at 36 or 37 in the 1840s.He was married to Margaret Talbert. Their oldest son was John O. Moore, my Gr Grandfather, who lived in Alvin IL after his mother married John Gouty, until 1892 when John moved to Oklahoma Territory with his 2nd wife and large family. I'm sure the O. in John's name stands for Oakley. This could be his grandmother's surname. I need the names of Thomas' mother and father. Family tradition says that Thomas was born about 1808 on a ship coming from Ireland and they settled in Michigan near Lake Michigan, but John O. told the 1900 year Census Taker that his parents were both born in Pennsylvania.|
Other surnames I'm searching are, Dunbar, Angell and Gray from Illinois and Missouri and Talbert from Indiana & Pennsylvania.I would appreciate any information anyone has. I've lived in Oklahoma all my life. If I can help you search here, I'll try.
