Moore Children

Not long ago I shared about a story I am researching - the murder of the 5 Moore children in 1899. Imagine my shock today when I sat down to read the newspaper and their murder was briefly mentioned in a story about a recent homicide here. [The husband killed his wife with an axe].

Here is a link to the online copy. I don't know how long the articles remain online.

I am still researching...and hope to finish before I go to print with the February quarterly for our genealogical society. And, I do hope our society adopts this as one of our community connection projects and erect a headstone for the children.


  1. Wow, a lot of sad stories there. I don't know how anyone could ever do that to a child, especially one's own.
