Looking to hire someone local who can go do some research for me in Belmont County. Probably need to visit the Barnesville Hutton Memorial Library and the Belmont County Courthouse and cemetery if burial locations are found. A family gathering is being held at the end of this month and I'd like the information as soon as possible.

I'm trying to determine who the parents of Gillespie Moore, born 06 Mar 1815 in Belmont County are. On the 1870 census it indicates that his father was foreign born.

He married Elizabeth Ann Patton about 1841. Her family were from Harrison County. She died sometime between 1870-1880. Burial Unknown.

Gillespie died 04 Jan 1874 in Belmont County. Burial location unknown.

Gillespie and Elizabeth had eight known children, all born in Belmont County.

Mary Elizabeth Moore b. abt 1842
Jane Moore b. abt 1844
Sarah Moore b. abt 1848
James Calvin Moore b. 22 Jun 1850, d. 23 Apr 1936
Walker Moore b. abt 1852
William Moore b. abt 1854
Martha Moore b. abt 1854
Clara A Moore b. Apr 1859

I hope someone out there can help. It's driving me crazy that Gillespie is such a tough nut to crack. Too many folks with the surname Moore in Belmont County.
