  • Notes 
    • "Morris C. Moore was born in Guilford County, North Carolina, was reared and educated there and in that county married Rebecca M. Beals, who was born in Eastern Tennessee, daughter of Abram Beals. Morris Moore and family went from North Carolina to Hancock County, Indiana, and from there in 1859 came west to Kansas Territory. He was one of the pioneers in Lyon County, and filed on a homestead northwest of Emporia. Later he moved to Chase County, entering land four miles east of Cottonwood Falls. The rest of his life was spent there and he died in 1870, when about thirty-five years old. Though his activities were those of a farmer and stockman he acquired considerable prominence in his locality. He was a man of great ambition and a leader in the Republican party. He remained true to the faith in which he was reared, that of the Friends. His widow survived him and afterwards married Barclay Thomas and now lives at Whittier, California. By her marriage to Morris Moore she was the mother of the following children: Ada V., wife of Dr. D. F. Janeway, of Stillwater, Oklahoma; Theodore B.; Marcellus E., of Ontario, California; Mary Rosetta, who died in young womanhood; Sarah Isabel, for many years a teacher in the Morgan Park schools of Chicago; Laura M., wife of Warren S. Wood, of Lawrence, Kansas." [Find a Grave page for Morris Moore, citation details below, accessed 7 Nov 2020]
