William (Willie) Moore married Sarah Shaney on 08/28/1875. Their children were Alvin, James, and Margaret. I cannot find any information on Willie's parents, siblings, place of birth, or actual cause of death. I have looked thru countless newspapers and sites. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I didn't find anything about Willie's parents, sibs, etc., but I did find his wife as a widow in 1880.

It looks like she is living with her mother and the three children. 

Additionally, she remarries in 1883 (?) in Grundy Co., Missouri to a man named Beaufort McCullough.  I couldn't find anything about him but it looks like she is buried in Black Oak Cemetery in Grundy MO with a number of Shaney's and also all her children.  She is listed as Sarah Moore McCullough. 

The link for William & Sarah's marriage is

Terri:  Unfortunate,but there are a few Moore named people that had a

William Moore born abt 1856.I ran down all there children and mother and]

father,death records hoping to tie them to him.There were two living in Platte County Missouri.Only thing you could do is order his death

Certificate from Missouri.because they charge for them,Maybe it will

list his parents.
