General Moore from TN or KY

I am looking for the proverbial "needle in a haystack" and need help. I am seeking the family of my gggrandmother Mary Davis Moore Barrow, who is listed on the 1870 Caldwell Co., TX, census as being born in KY. She married my gggrandfather Samuel D. Sebastian Barrow in 1855 in TX. According to family tradition, her father came to TX from TN and "bought lots of land"; didn't like his daughters all "marrying cowboys" and went back to TN upon Mary's marriage to SD. I've exhausted my places to look and recently was told that there was a General Moore who came to Hays Co. from Tennessee or Kentucky. An article about him was written in the Hays County Hist. & Gene. Soc. magazine in the early '70s's. Does anyone there have access to these publications who could look this up and see if there is any mention of General Moore's family? I would appreciate any help I can receive. Thanks.
