(f) BEDIENT, Agnes DRAKE, 838 Murray. Wichita, KS 67212-4167 (Sedgwick). Wish to crspd with desc of Benjamin F. MOORE b ca 1842 in Ohio, who m Sarah E. WILCOX on 8 June 1872 in Brown Co Ind; and Solomon MOORE b ca 1844 in Ohio who m Susannah KING on 31 Jan 1864 in Brown Co Ind. I believe these two men were sons of Nelson and Nancy MOORE. Nelson d at age 37 in 1854 in Van Buren Twp, Brown Co Ind. Was Nelson the son of Solomon and Mary TRUAX MOORE of Belmont Co Ohio? Nelson MOORE's widow, Nancy, may have married two more times and possibly lived in Barton Co Kans where Moses and Matilda MOORE WARD's family were living.
