This is the only Moore in Collins Settlement in 1880. James occupation is a Miller.
Note that James's birthplace is now listed as VA, not WVA. The boundaries do change. Also, ages are the same and
Sadie A in 1900 Census and Sarah A. in 1880. Also, Ivy and Myrtle seem to die before 1900, yet Lily, and Lillie are
still the same age with the same birthplace.
I am related to Ralph G. MOORE. He later moves to Washington, marries Irma I.(no last name)Nov 23, 1910 in Seatle.
Later He worked for the Southern Pacific railroad in California. In a 1920 Mud Spring Township, El Dorado, CA
