Hi - can someone assist? I am at a dead-end with this - my g-grandfather is Francis Herbert Moore b. 1848 died in Mason Co. (Bath) IL m. Julia M. Blessman - his father was John (E.?) Moore b. 1828 d. 1848 est. died in Bath as well I believe. John Moore was from Kentucky.

Based on some very old notes from some relatives John had 9 bro/sisters. His wife was listed as Susan Bowan (Bowen/Bonar?). His ancestors were scotch-irish and were here long enough to fight in the revolutionary ward.

Does anyone have any help they would be willing to give? I'd like to trace the Moore line right now. Any clues would be appreciated. I have the Blessmans to the point they entered the U.S. from Germany.
