Hi. This is some information gleaned from a 1900 Lewis Co.,Collins Settlement District, West Virginia Soundex and a
1880 Lewis Co., WVA Census.
This is the 1900 Soundex
MOORE, James L. Head born May 1845 WVA
Sadie A. Wife Oct 1854 PA
Lillie R. Dau Mar 1879 WVA
Ralph G. Son Feb 1884 WVA
Reid L. Son Aug 1888 WVA
Zamia F. Dau Nov 1891 WVA
Daisy Dau Nov 1899 WVA
CYPHERT,Nancy J. Mother in Law
June 1817 PA
This that follows is the 1880 Census for Collins Settlement Dist.
MOORE, James L. Head Age 35 VA
Sarah A Wife 25 PA
Ivy Dau 4 WVA
Myrtle Dau 3 WVA
Lily Dau 1 WVA

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
MOORE, Ralph G. Head Age 35 Born WVA
Irma I Wife 32 WVA
Inez C Dau 8 WA
Elsie J Dau 6 Oregon
Ralph G. MOORE also builds a home on Avalon, Vista, CA.

In Sadie's death records, states James L. MOORE was born in Upshur WVA.
I will continue to research for MOORE in VA, and WVA and for CEPHERT in PA. Any connections, let us join
Take Care. Sarah

MOORE, Ralph G.
