She's from Minnesota, my g-ma

(Her mother is Myrtle Roberts, Cecil, Brayford)

License registry, father, Geo. W. Moore

Mother MYRTLE Smith

I have found nothing in those names!

I think he made them up..

Because he went to the orphanage with his daughter

To find family information in the 1950s  

In Richmond Virginia,

Found out orphanage had a fire destroy records.

Except the last remember him and his sister's and had said Rachel married and her and her husband had moved to Silverton Colorado to run or manager or own a motel or hotel there. But up arriving found out she had just moved to California to live.( Never found her)

So I believe that info is incorrect.

He left the orphanage between 14- 17 years old

Went to Chesapeake bay to work on ships.

DNA matches, the following Surname. Moore

Johnson, Smith, Henderson

, also showing possibly

From James Moore that lived in Maryland,

My Mother DNA says she's 39℅ Scandinavian

Irish and 4% African and more.

My grandfather believed that he's native mixed,

He's facial features are dominant.

Please He!p..
