Cora Ellen Moore said she was born 22 April 1875 in Terre Haute, IN. Her father was Joe Moore. When she was about 10 years old, she left Indiana. In 1898 she was living in Mexico, Audrain Co., MO and married Louis Otto Hepler in 1900. Prior to her marriage she worked in a boarding house. She had a sister who visited her there once. If anyone has information that applies to this Cora's life prior to 1900, please share.
I believe she could have been born earlier, possibly between 1871 and 1875. Her mother was reportedly born in Indiana. There is a chance she had relatives in Toledo, OH.
I have checked the census records but of course there is that 1880 - 1900 gap which is exactly the time frame in question. She told a story of living with grandparents briefly in Nebraska but it is believed she was never West of Missouri. I can only hope that someone descended from her sister and knows something or has some Moore loose ends that fit this puzzle.
Thanks for any help.
