Re: William and Ida (MEGGS) MOORE burial location??

Thanks for your interest and response. Yes, those are my Moores. In 1860, William, 13, was living in C. Q. Haley's household. William was an orphan and taken in by the family. This story has been handed down in our family. William's mother died aboard ship on the trip from England and was buried at sea. William's father--name unknown--died after arriving in the U.S. at Galveston. I don't know the date/place of his death.

Then in 1870, William is in Falls Co. where he married Ida Meggs. The last time I can locate William on the census is in 1880 in Limestone Co. After that, I can not locate William anywhere. That is my reason for trying to determine his burial location.

Just this week I located William's widow on the 1900 Limestone Co. Census in the household of her son William Clarence Moore, who is my husband's grandfather. Ida is listed as "Ida Davis, widow", with two young Davis daughters. This was news to me because I never knew that she remarried. As far as I know, I don't think there was a divorce. The last time I can locate Ida (Meggs) Moore Davis is on the 1920 Freestone Co. Census in the household of Walton Williamson and wife Erma (daughter of Ida.) I haven't located Ida Davis on the 1930 Census and don't know when/where she died.
