Maude (WHITMER/MOORE - Clay Co 1885/1912
Posted by: Dennis Johnson (ID *****3355) Date: December 20, 2013 at 02:11:32

I have a 1900 +/- photograph of my g/g/grandfather, Edwin HALL and his daughter, grand daughter and two great grand daughters(?). Edwin had a twin, Henry, who stayed in England. Sitting alongside Edwin in the photo is one of his daughters, Thirza (HALL) WHITMER. Her twin died in England shortly before the family came to the US. Standing behing the two is Thirza's daughter, Maude (WHITMER) MOORE, whose twin was Charles, last known living in Dupree, SD, in 1912. Edwin and Thirza are each holding one of Maude's twins, of which I know nothing, not even gender. I assume that they are two year old girls.
Maude died young and findagrave says she is buried in the "Old" Lodi cemetery, Clay County, with the dates 1875/1912. However, the photo on southdakotagravestones shows the dates on the stone to be 1885/1912 and with a married name of MOORE.
Maude and another brother, William, are buried in the old Lodi cemetery, as are Thirza and her husband, John Harvey (Jack). I know little more about them than this. Anyone have any ideas as to how to trace the MOORE twins or Charles WHITMER?
