> Hi Kari,
> I saw your Moore family information on our Family Tree Maker page. My great-grandmother, Martha Elizabeth Moore and her husband Marion Madison Hood are listed on the descendant report for Richard Moore. I am interested in any other information you may have on the family.
> Also, I have something you may be interested in. On a search for ancestors I visited some cemeteries in Greene and Lawrence County, MO. I found some Moores in a Lawrence Co cemetery and took a chance that I would find connections later and took pictures of headstones. I have a picture of the headstone of Andrew Moore, who died December 1, 1890. When I have my new scanner working I could send pictures, if you are interested.

> Hi Kari,
> Thank you so much for the census info and for sharing your wonderful website. You've done a great job with it. There's lots of information on it that I didn't have. I was interested to see that Joseph Moore was buried in the Summit Cemetery in Lawrence Co; I've visited several cemeteries in Lawrence and Greene counties hunting for family. Martha Elizabeth Moore Hood is buried in the Johns Chapel Cemetery in Greene Co.
> I have a web page on AOL (nothing like your website, which I wouldn't have a clue about how to do!). Anyway, there is a picture of Marion Madison Hood and Martha Elizabeth Moore Hood on it. It's at:

> If you'd like a clearer version of the picture, I'd be glad to send it as an attachment.
> Thanks again for sharing with me; I really appreciate it.
