Some time before the Civil War John Moore and Martha Bradford brought their family from Tennessee to the bluff above Dade Valley.

A few years later John Moore and Mary Josephine Bradford (about 15 or 16) left. It was hard to follow their travels or locations. I tried to find them in the censuses but could never be sure I found John Moore. Aunt Josie is listed in the 1890 census, 41, sister of Alexander Moore and living with them. In the 1860 census she was Mary Josephine Bradford, 4 year old daughter of Henry Martin Bradford, 30 years old, born in Tennessee.

They were from Greene County, TN. (Submitted by Lola Moore Kyte, Kingston, TN 37763.)
