Today I learned about the tragic murder of Mary Moore, daughter of Major John Moore of Boone co. KY, who was stabbed to death by William Henry Harrison, grandson of the US president of the same name, for refusing his affections. A Chicago Times article on her death can be seen here: https://imgur.com/wf7k5v3

Do we have a Wikitree profile for Mary? She seems to have come from a fairly prominent family but I can't find one for her.

I will research my Ancestry tree.... I have connections to the Harrisons and also to the Moore Family.  I will be back in touch.
