Subject: [MOORE-RES] Hamiltons and Moores AR, TX, NC, TN, GA

Clear DayLooking for information on Hamiltons and Moores who were
living in the late 1800's in Arkansas, Hot Springs Co near the NW
corner where it meets with Garland Co. The community was called Oma.
The Hamilton family consisted of at least three sons and one daughter.
Their dates of birth were just before the Civil War. One sibling was
named James Adolphus Hamilton (October 7, 1861 - June 19, 1912) who
married Rhiney Jane Moore (December 22, 1871 - 1927) about 1890 in
Arkansas. Between 1892 and 1895 the couple with their first two
children moved to Williamson Co, TX. The 2000 census records that
James Adolphus Hamilton was born in Georgia.

The Moores had been in Arkansas since just after the Civil War. This
is a family that descends eventually from the Demsey Moores from NC
who moved near Knoxville, TN then into McNairy Co, TN before coming to

On the Moore side the lineage is recorded to be as follows:

Edward Moore (1695 - ?) married Dinah ?
Demsey Moore (1733 - ? in Granville, NC) married ?
Demsey Moore (Before 1752 - ?) married Susannah Walker
Demsey Moore (2-04-1789 - 5-01-1856 in McNairy Co, TN)
married Polly Elder
Jesse Lee Moore (5-11-1827 in Randolph Co, NC -
6-11-1863 in DeRoche, Hot Springs Co, AR) married Roina Blake Hardin
John Wilkie Moore (10-27-1848 in Knoxville, TN -
4-21-1897 in Oma, Hot Springs Co, AR) married Jane Brabbin
Rhiney Jane Moore ( 12-22-1871 in Oma, Hot
Spring Co, AR - (12-27-1927 in Williamson Co, TX) married James
Adolphus (Dol) Hamilton

All there is for the Hamiltons is

? Hamilton (?-?) married ?
Male? Hamilton (1848 - ?) (may be John. Dad spoke of an "Uncle
John" Hamilton)
Female? Hamilton (between 1849-1850 - ?)
Male? Hamilton (May 1855 - ?) (may be John. Dad spoke of an Uncle
John Hamilton)
James Adolphus Hamilton (10-7-1861 in GA - 6-19-1912 in TX)
married Rhiney Jane Moore
Nancy Jane Hamilton (01-1891in AR - 1940 in TX) married Horace
Bishop Anderson
Geride E. Hamilton (10-1892 in AR - ?)
Herbert D. Hamilton (10-1895 in TX - ?) married Ruthie Staton
Myrtle Hamilton (3-1899 in TX - ?)

Would appreciate any information on either of these families. Thanks
