Joshua M. GORE76 was born in 1854 in South Carolina.76 In 1880, Joshua'a wife was listed simply as C. S. Gore, age 24, born in South Carolina. I believe her to be the Charity, daughter of Elizabeth Murphy & Crawford Pickle who was born in 1856. In other words, Joshua and Charity were 1st cousins. Both were listed as heirs in the estate settlement of their grandparents, Ezekiel & Charity Murphy and receipts show both received payments at the same time.

Children in 1880 included a son, C. R. age 4, and a daughter, Dora A. age 2.
