New at this and I am stuck

Hey all, got a question. I am trying to find some kind of info in regards to great great grandfather. Here is what I have. I have great granpas death certificate. It states who his parents are. The problem is I cannot find any kind of info about him.

I have his wifes name, but after searching records I find tidbits of information on the census forums. Some doesnt seem to match some seems legit.

So I just wrote an eamil to the genealogy library from where they lived and hope to get some more info. I am looking for the death, burth and marriage of this man, but am just plain stuck.

This is his name if there any Moore on here. His name is Jacob Moore, wife is Catherine Beaver. He was born around 1822 from what I can see. Not sure when she was born. Funny thing is on the 1860 census his name is not listed. So either they got a divorce or he died. Cant find any info about that either.

Well if you got any tips or suggestions please let me know. Like I said I am new to this. I have found a good amouunt of info so far, but am at a dead end here.

Thanks for reading
