This note from Lucy Ann (Searcy) Moore shares some family history of the Searcy, Morton, and Moore families.  Also provides interesting detail that she and Hamilton G. Moore "parted" December 1855, but W. D. Moore was born six months later.  It is unclear if "parted" means divorce here or separation.
