Moore Mystery

John Walter Moore's history is still very much a mystery to me. The Moore surname is one of the most common. In fact, over 910,000 people share the surname in the United States alone.

There is a John Moore in the Social Security Database with SS#432-24-7488, born 9/1/1893, died April 1982, last address was Crossett, Ashley, Arkanasas.

The story of his family continues in a later chapter. Until we know more about his ancestors, this page is mostly just a place holder.
