Regarding the picture you mention, do Edward and Samuel appear to be father and son or brothers? I don't know of Edward Moore having a son Edward, but he did have a Samuel. Below are excerpts from my notes:

Henry Thomas Moss was estranged, by his own choice, from his birth family and I doubt that even his wife knew his true story. Members of his family had finally located him
c 1910-1913. Three letters written to him at that time are still in the family. Because of the elapsed years there were quite a few updates about family members; whom they'd married, etc. Using information from those letters, I recently started searching the various names on the internet and was able to find the family. His mother was Elvina Bierly. Elvina's father was Jacob Bierly, b 1812.

Henry Thomas Moss was born Oct 1858 in Centre County, PA (He was called Thomas) His mother was
Elvina (or Lavania) Bierly who married Edward Moore before 1870 (He is P Edward Moore in some postings)
Her known children, besides Thomas Moss, are:
William Rigels, B c1852, married Daisy
Samuel Moore
Tillie (Amanda) Moore, married 1st Weaster?, 2nd Harry H Mitchell
Sadie Moore, married 1st Greup?; 2nd Harer/Hairer?
Calvin Moore - I believe he's Elvina's step-son, son of Edw. Moore and 1st wife

It appears Elvina could have had three husbands; Rigels, Moss and Moore.... I'll check my records for more informtion on Edward Moore tomorrow and get back to you but, as he isn't in my husbands real lineage, I didn't focus too much there. Helen
