Moore Family

September 15th, 2007 by Barbara

This line belongs to Sue (Moore) Saxbury of Barry, IL. Please contact her at if you can provide any further information and/or are connected to this line.

Sue is looking for any further information on
Charles B. Moore b. Dec 18, 1863 d. Oct 16, 1911

His parents: George & Elizabeth (Jessup) Moore were married in Warren County, OH, at Lebanon, the county seat 11/23/1836. There were 12 of the Moore children. Charles B. being the youngest.

Charles B. Moore was married and had a daughter before he married Iva Mullan. The marriage was most likely in OH. It could have been Warren Co or perhaps Clinton, Greene or Hamilton.

He applied for a marriage license in McDonough Co IL on 2/11/1896 so the other marriage would have been previous to that. He was 33 when he married Iva Belle.

He is buried in Macomb with his parents and his second wife Iva. His father George Moore was born in Fayette County PA but no trace can be found there.
