Hi all,

I was wondering if there is someone over in Lawrence Co., OH that can help me with this family? This is what I have on them so far;

Matthew L. MOORE m. Margaret BALLARD, 13 Oct 1852, in Kanawha (W)VA. He was the son of Matthew MOORE, Sr. & Nancy BUTLER, from Fluvanna & Campbell Co., VA. He was born 1830 near Lynchburg, VA. The whole family migrated to Kanawha then Cabell Co., (W)VA after Matthew L's. birth, about 1830.

1850 Cabell County, 10th District, State of Virginia Census. Taken 23rd day of Aug 1850;

Page 39A & 39B;

#543-567:

Nancy MOORE.../ 53 / F / VA / Widowed
Granderson MOORE.../ 28 / M / Farmer / VA
Sarah MOORE.../ 22 / F / VA
*Martin L. MOORE... / 20 / M / Farmer / VA
Samuel MOORE.../ 18 / M / VA
Rhoda MOORE.../ 15 / F / VA
*Josiah MOORE.../ 13 / M / VA

1. Child # 3, Martin L. MOORE, age 20, should be listed as Matthew L. MOORE.

2. Child # 6, Josiah MOORE, age 13, listed with Nancy MOORE'S children is actually the son of John M. MOORE and Esther ____, living in Kanawha County, VA at the same time.

3. There is a John MOORE listed on Matthew MOORE, Sr's., Inventory Will filed in Cabell County Virginia in 1848. This could have been be the same John MOORE listed in Kanawha County Virginia Census in 1850.

Aid Township, Lawrence County, OHIO.

1870 Census, Lawrence Co., OH, taken on June 28, 1870;

#213-194;

Matthew MOORE...41 / M / W / Collier / VA
Margaret MOORE...37 / F / W / Wife / VA
James MOORE...19 / M / W / Son / VA
Nancy MOORE...12 / F / W / Dau. / OH
Charles MOORE...9 / M / W / Son / OH
Julia A. MOORE...6 / F / W / Dau. / OH
Cora B. MOORE...3 / F / W / Dau. / OH

Then I find them here;

1880 Census, Coalton, Boyd County, KENTUCKY;

Page 289B;

M. L. MOORE /Self / M / Male / W / 55 / VA / Coal Miner / VA / VA

Margret MOORE / Wife / M / Female / W / 41 / VA / Keeping House / VA / VA

Charles MOORE / Son / S / Male / W / 19 / OH / At Home / VA / VA

Cora MOORE / Dau. / S / Female / W / 13 / OH / At Home / VA / VA

John MOORE / Son / S / Male / W / 9 / OH / At Home / VA / VA

Lurana MOORE / Dau. / S / Female / 6 / KY / At Home / VA / VA

I cannot find this family in the 1860 Census of Lawrence Co., OH, even though their children were listed as born in OH.

I like to find more data on this family forward. I would like to know the dates & who they married of Matthew L. & Margaret MOORE'S children. If there was anymore children born to M. & M. after 1880. Find them in the 1900 Census, hopefully they were still in Boyd Co., KY then. Find their death dates....and etc. And I do figure that Matthew L. MOORE was in the Civil War, possibly over in Lawrence Co., OH, because of the years birth gap between some of their children.

Is there anyone out there who is related to this family and has them well documented over in Lawrence Co., OH? I will be glad to exchange my information for the same.

Thank you in advance.
