I couldn't find Ida in Limestone Co, TX in 1870, to be sure she married in Limestone Co, so went looking. Found your couple in neighboring Falls Co.

1870 census Falls Co, TX:

Moore, William, 23, b England - no land/personal 150
" Ida, 17, b MS
" Charles, 9/12, b TX, born in April
Meigs[sic], Caroline, 47. b A:
" Eliza, 11, b MS

Then I checked out Falls Co, TX GenWeb site and I used their search feature, 485 matches for Moore, so tried Meggs. It asked did I mean "Miggs", so I clicked and found

William Moore, married 7 Dec 1869, to Ida Miggs

I don't know if this is yours, but on the 1860 census Leon Co, TX:

Moore, Wm., 13, b England - attending school - enumerated in the Haley household. Besides Haley children there are a couple of others also attending school. Did this man take in orphans??? His land is worth 2400 and personal 6,562 (maybe slaves???) No one else in household born in England and no other Moores born in England on that census in Leon Co, TX.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
