Just to say I did find info on the John Moore who died 1893 in Lawrence County, AL. Sadly its not my ancestor but I now know about him. AND, I also found info on Richard Moore so both of those queries can be discontinued. Still looking for info on James Matheson Moore. Thank you for your help. The service you provide is appreciated.
