    in february i went to live with my father’s family in lafayette,ga.and got to meet alot of moore’s i never knew i was kin to.over time i got to have copies of many photos of the moore’s.i am so proud to have of my cousins took me to see hawkins was such a beautiful place.i also got to see oval talley moore.he was a joy to talk to.i hope i get to see him again.
    and now i understand the rift between the 2 moore families-between brothers john washington moore and william alexander moore.apparently one side (william alexander moore)
    got a little better off money-wise.and they refuse to acknowledge the poor side(john washington moore) or even say they are kin to us.i take great umbrage to comes and money goes but blood is blood,and that is the way it should be.please remove this rift;it is only hurting and no good is coming out of it.

    @ Denny W. Moore… I would love to hear any info you have… I cannot tell you how shocked I was to be sitting here looking for ancestry facts tonight and ran across your post that listed OVAL TALLEY MOORE… He is my great uncle… I am just getting started trying to trace family members and unfortunately, I did not grow up around them so it is even harder for me… I am Ollie M. Moore’s grand-daughter… my family moved to Albany, Ga. when I was around 2 yrs old…. I would love, love to hear the story… plus any others you could offer…
