I haven't found any other information about Smith other than the census records. He and Julia have five children listed in the 1870 census:
Henderson Moore b: abt. 1852 Al
Julia Moore b: abt. 1854 Al
Mollie Moore b: abt 1855 Al
Harrison Moore b: abt 1857 Al
Elvira Moore b: abt 1861 Al
Smith's occupation is listed as a farmer, left blank are able to read or write.
The next census 1880 shows Smith Moore age 55 years of age, still living in Florence, Lauderdale, Alabama with his wife Julia and some new information, Smith's parents are listed as being born in Virginia. Smith is still a farmer, and he has a nephew David Kelley 4 years old born 1876 Alabama, mulatto, and another nephew Andrew Brayn born 1875 age 5, mulatto.
By the 1900 Census, Smith Moore age 75 is still living in Florence, Lauderdale Co. Alabama and is widowed. He has:
Ella Moore age 8 born Feb 1891 Al. black, relation to Smith, stepdaughter.
Allen Moore age 7, born Feb 1893 Al, black, stepson.
Arthur Moore age 2, born April 1898 Al, black, stepson.
Samuel Moore age 3, born Nov, 1897 Al, black, stepson.
Smith's occupation Farm laborer, cannot read, cannot write, can speak English and he's renting a house.
I did a little research on Smith and Julia's children.
Henderson is working on a farm in 1870 and single, I haven't found any more about him so far.
Julia no new information on her yet.
Mollie, married Henry Bell Key on Aug 12, 1877 in Lauderdale Co, Mississippi. Mollie is my gr grandmother.
Harrison Moore married Josephine James in 1884. Josephine was born about 1859 Alabama. They had eleven children.
Elvira Moore unknown so far.
I haven't been able to find out when Smith Moore or Julia died, or where they are buried ,but I am still researching all the family for cemetery records, birth records, marriages, and more. This at least gives me a picture into the life of Smith Moore and his family.
My dream is that someone related to Smith Moore and Julia will read this and share information, photos and stories.
