This is an unpublished manuscript written by Mabel, Heber, and William Pleas Moore. Pleas dated the Preface 13 September 1977. My Mom made some annotations later in her copy.

There are various copies among the descendants of (at least) their sister Mary Moore. I got my copy from my Mom. Two of my aunts also have copies (Mona Diefenbach and Maye Boyd.)

The full title is: A Wagon Load of Cookwood: Some Memories of the W.G. Moore Family

Mabel's section is short, just 5 pages, though as the oldest of the 3, she is referenced often in the other 2 sections, especially Pleas's. It is a letter Mabel wrote to Pleas that she wrote for the book. Heber's section covers pp. 6-78, and Pleas finishes it out with pp. 79-156. The first pages of Pleas's section is titles "Our Ancestors" and is a 4 page chapter where he gives a listing of his ancestors, including transcriptions of some letters from Pleas Vinson (his uncle) and Charlotte Ann (Vaugn) Stoll.

William Gardner Moore (abt.1876-1957) is the W.G. Moore referenced.

The 1930 Census[1] lists the Moore and Lowery families on lines 26-38. (Earnie's and Leslie's names are misspelled. Mary Ann and Paul Norman married shortly after the census I believe.)
