Kathleen & Kari--

Last week Ross Cameron and I were exchanging some Lawrence Co., MO information. The name Moore came up, and I inquired if one of them married Kate Ruckert. Ross gave me a copy of your information exchange from last April which I find most interesting.

Kate Ruckert's younger brother Harry Otis Ruckert was my great-grandfather. I don't know how much Ruckert information you have (or want!), but I would be happy to supply anything I might have. I have a lengthy letter from Herbert Moore (1970) which tells what he remembers his mother telling about the family. Also this past winter I have learned a lot about the family of Kate & Harry's mother, Rebecca Bare, from a "Bare" cousin in Wisconsin.

In the papers Ross gave me, I note that John J. Moore had a sister Leva who married a Fowler. That looked familiar to me. Sure enough:

Leva was married 1899 (per 1900 Census) Raymon Fowler (b. 1870 in Illinois, d. 10 Apr 1952, Lawrence Co. MO). Both are buried at the Ozark Prairie Cemetery in Lawrence Co. (I grew up a stone's throw from that cemetery.) Raymon's father was Ezra T. Fowler (b. Dec 30, 1833; d. May 10, 1899) and his second wife Mary Jane Essery (b. Oct 16, 1846, d. Jan 13, 1894). Both buried at Ozark Prairie Cemetery. Ezra Fowler's first wife was the mother of my g-g-grandmother Bettie Victoria Fowler Swearingen. (Bettie's daughter Emma married Harry Otis Ruckert.)

I'd enjoy hearing from you.

> I think fate has dictated that I am supposed to contact you today! First there was the message regarding your new email address. Then your address (the new one!) came up when I did a random search for Ezra Fowler (my ggg-grandfather). His son Raymon was a younger half-brother of my gg-grandmother Elizabeth/Bettie Victoria Fowler Swearingen. Anyway I recently acquired from a Swearingen cousin a CD of photo album pages. I thought you might like the Raymon Fowler/Leva Moore page. Also, here is what I have in my database on the Fowlers:
