Any info. on this family:

F.L. (Florence?) Moore, m: Tina May Michaels, d: Alabama; Daug. of F.L. and Tina: Juanita (Oneita) Moore, b: Tn.; d: 1967 Elm Lawn Cem., Cook Co., Illinois; I have not
found a cemetery listing for the Elm Lawn Cem.; m: Clifford or Gilfred Cunningham (no dates other than died 1990, Ark) Clifford was the son of Francis and Eva Pearl (Risenhoover) Cunningham, b: 12 Dec.1893/94; d: 27 Aug. 1993, Garden Court Cem., Ark.. The Michaels and Moore family were possibly in the Chicago, Ill. area at one time. Juanita also used the first name of Oneita. Juanita and Gilfred/Clifford may have married in Mississippi or Hot Springs Co., Ark. I found a listing for the Garden Court Cem., Mississippi Co., Ark. which lists:
Clifford E. "Honey" Cunningham, b: 12 June 1906; d: 18 Dec. 1991
Elbert Cunningham, b: 12 Mar. 1950; d: 13 March 1950
Eva Pearl Cunningham, b; 12 Dec. 1894; d: 27 Aug. 1993
Infant son, Cunningham, b; 24 May 1945; d: 24 May 1945
Lorene Cunningham, b: 7 June 1922; d: 7 June 1922
Lorene Lola Cunningham, b: 1922; d: 14 Nov. 2000
Myrl Cunningham, b: 10 Mar. 1928; d: 30 Apr. 1998
Thomas Jasper Cunningham, b: 28 June 1888; d: 29 Dec. 1968
William Earl Cunningham, b: 24 July 1956; d: 24 July 1956
I do not know how they are related at this time.

Also, in an obit. for Oneita(Juanita)'s sister, Ella Jane "Skeet" (Moore) Sellers of Portage, Wi., b: 19 Feb. 1932, Ark.; d: 8 June 2007, Silver Lake Cem., Wi.; m: George Sellers; and lists another sister, Mary Ann Moore, m: Mr. Hodge of Alabama.

Eva Pearl Risenhoover Cunningham lived in Luxora, Ark. when she died. I have no information on her husband, Francis Cunningham. Could have been from Oregon Co., Missouri?

Thanks, Linda (
