Stacy: I do not know if it is the same family of Moores or not. Joel Moore came to Milam County from Tennessee in 1835. When Milam County was organized, he was one of the Justices of Peace. In those days, their function was the same as present day County Commissioners. His land grant from the Republic of Texas was located near Davilla. I only know the names of his children. I do not know much about them after the mid 1800's. His children were Westly Moore; Sarah Moore, who married James Howlett; Celia Ann Moore, my GG grandmother, who married Winfred Bailey; Lemuel Moore; Perry Moore; Eliza Jane Moore, who married John Hobson, a Veteran of San Jacinto, who is buried in Milam County; George W. Moore, who married Frances McClanahan and who died in the Civil War as a member of Hood's Brigade; Abram Moore; and Sina Moore, who married William Young. I hope you can make a connection.
