Biography

Henry Moore is the son of James and Frances Moore. He was born 17 Feb 1843 in Missouri, USA. [1][2]

1860 US Census: He's 17, as Henry Moore (without middle initial) with father and father's wife Catherine, and many other siblings. In Dardenne, St. Charles, MO

1870 US Census: Not sure where they are, but most of the Moores in Dardenne are enumerated as More. I think James is enumerated as John D. 67 with wife Catherine. No Henry with them. [3]

1880 US Census: There is a 35-year-old Henry identified as son, living in the house of D. James and Catherine Moore in Dardenne, St. Charles, MO. Enumerated immediately below him is Emilie Moore, 29, "daughter" also married. Note: not "daughter-in-law". There then follow a number of very young males identified as sons of James but who seem to be too young to be James' and Catherine's children-- both of whom are 77. More likely these are the children of Henry C and Emilie Moore, mis-recorded as the children of their grandparents; they are:

  1. Alando, m, 11
  2. Charles, m, 9
  3. W. Edmund, m, 8
  4. William N., m, 4
  5. Selaste?, m, 1[4]

After 1880 Henry C moved to Visalia, California. Wife Amelia (a variation of Emeline). commented 3 days ago by Jillaine Smith G2G6 Pilot [5]

Bible Title: William Ward Family Bible Note: These records copied March 4, 1928 from the original in the William Ward Family Bible, by Mrs. Charles F. Johnson, nee Ella R. Bailey, great grand-daughter of William Ward, grand-daughter of Mrs. John Yerby Phillips nee Margaret Rebecca Ward, daughter of Mrs. James D. Moore, Jr. nee Ann Pines Phillips. The William Ward Bible was treasured for many years by Mrs. James Duke Moore, Sr. nee Catherine Ward and after her death on Aug 1, 1892, came into the care of Mrs. James D. Moore, Jr., nee Ann Pines Phillips. Ann was born June 9, 1841; married Robert Bailey, Jr. on April 11, 1859, and some years after his death, married James D. Moore, Jr. on Oct 4, 1871. She died Aug 4 1926 and the Bible is now in the care of her family.

In 1852, 3-year-old Amelia Reynolds traveled with her family by covered wagon 3,000 miles from Massachusetts to settle in Tulare County, California. That pioneer spirit lives on in her grandson, Ralph Moore, who has become known as the Grandfather of the American Miniature Rose.

Interview with Orlando's son, Ralph Moore:

I was born here. My father, Orlando, was born out here just north of Cutler Park and his mother, my grandmother, came here in 1852, the year that Visalia was started. She was a child about three years old.

Ed: Ralph’s grandmother, Amelia Reynolds, was the stepdaughter of John Cutler. She married Henry Clay Moore in Visalia in 1868.
