Unknown Son #2 MooreUnknown Son #2 Moore was probably born between 1881 to 1885 in Lawrence Co., MO. His parents obits state that they had 11 children, that 3 of those children died in infancy, and that they had 5 sons and 6 daughters. I am guessing on his birthyear because based on birthyears of the other children it seems odd that they would have a 6 year gap without a birth between Clara & Lenna. This son is not listed on any census records. Unknown Son #2 Moore probably died between 1881 to 1890 in Lawrence Co., MO.
