1900 census Wise Co, TX:

Moore, William B., h, b Sep 1870, 29, M 11 yrs, b TN, TN, TN
" Eva I., w, b Mar 1874, 26, M 11 yrs, 4 ch, 3 lvg, b TN, TN, TN
" David K., s, b Nov 1890, 9, b TN
" Oscar G., s, b Feb 1892, 8, b TX
" Lessie H., d, b Apr 1896, 4, b TX

Next door - [father of William?]:

Moore, David, h, b Jun 1842, 57, M 34 yrs, b TN, VA, TN
" Mary E., w, b Sep 1845, 54, M 34 yrs, b TN, TN, TN
Moser, David H., grd son, b Sept 1883, 16, b TN, TN, TN

Same page is a Moser family that age wise this David would fit.

1880 census Wilson Co, TN:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

D. L. H. MOORE Self M Male W 36 TN Farmer NC TN

E. M. MOORE Dau S Female W 12 TN TN TN
W. B. MOORE Son S Male W 9 TN TN TN
E. S. MOORE Dau S Female W 6 TN TN TN

The above D.L.H. Moore shows up with various intial combinations, but I think he is the David, son of David Byrd Moore.

1860 census Wilson Co, TN:

Moore, D.B., 53, b NC - land 8,110/personal 5,659 [slaves?]

Next door, probably a married son:

Moore, William A.J., 24, b TN - no land/personal 600
" Parthena, 18, b TN

Go to the Wilson Co, TN GenWeb site -- -- Someone submitted a document from 1835 includes David B. Moore. And, the submitter gives some info on parents of the 4 Moore brothers. Just enter Moore in their search feature, first match is this one.

I didn't look at all the matches, some probably won't fit, as Moore is a fairly common surname, but in the middle of the third page someone gives:

David Byrd Moore, b 1807 NC; md Mary Elizabeth Donnell, 1830 Wilson Co, TN.

With that you can go to the Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- there are some other submitters, but this one gives some sources etc, for David Byrd Moore.

William is on the 1910 Wise Co, TX census and 1920 & 1930 in Hall Co, TX. He has a Helen Moore listed in his household as mother-in-law. I think she is the widow of Robert D. from the 1910 census. Robert was next page from William in 1910 census. Robert D. Moore was an uncle to William.
