Alphonso Rudolph Moore and Wilheminia Regetta Rittemyer

I am looking for information to see if possibly these two were in Scott County Missouri around Fornfelt, or Scott City as it is called now. It was called Fornfelt when my father Victor H. Moore, and his brothers Edward H. Moore and Paul O. Moore, and sister Thelma E.were born there in 1913 to abt 1922 for the four births or the range I have them if they would help anyone or anyone needs them.

My Father was Victor Hugo Moore his parents, and my grandparents were:

Edward Hamilton Moore Sr., and his second wife Effie Frances Estes married Jun 18, 1912 Fornfelt, Scott County, Missouri.

Edward Hamilton Moore Senior ran a construction outfit in Fornfelt. I know the house they lived in and got a picture of it a few years back, but unfortunately not the address.

Edward Hamilton Moore's Parents and my (my great grandparents)were:

Alphonso Rudolph Moore born Mar 05,1845 in Tasmania, Australia, and wife Wilheminia Regetta Rittemyer born Jun 1854 in Hanover section of Germany or, Prussia, Germany.

This lady's maiden name was spelled Ritmar, Rittmyer, Bettmyer and everything in between so not sure which is correct. She was called Minnie Moore in all the censuses after her marriage though.

Alphonso Rudolph Moore and Minnie Moore I can trace till 1880 and then of course in 1890 there is no census but in 1900 they ended up in Richland County, Illinois were my grandfather or their son Edward Hamilton Moore moved with his family.

I am wondering if by any chance there is anything to show they might have been in Scott County in the missing 20 years between 1880 or so and 1900? Does anyone know if they happened across these Moores there in that county? Sometimes he is listed in censuses as just A.R. Moore but I can't find them in the censuse there, but he could have been there in between censuses.

Would be glad to share with anyone,and be very thankful if there are people not related who know something of these people or have information about them. If you are related, or know anything about them you can answer here or contact Pris
