Dear Sally,

I was delighted to hear from you. I am always looking for more information about my "MOORE" side of the family.

I will summarize the information for you and keep digging to see if I have anything else that might help your friend. Please let me know if we match up. Can't wait to see if we have a match. Happy Holidays. Gail Smith Boyle

The Ollie Moore that I have was married to Virgil Haulbrooks/Holbrooks.
Her grandparents were: Perry Moore b. 7/10/1908 (son of Pinkney) and Laura Thrift b. 9/29/1846 d. 10/04/1026.
Laura was the daughter of Lorenzo/Loranzo Thrift and Malissa Cox.
