    William died in 1900.  Izella's application for a Confederate widow'spension also gives us her date of marriage to WIlliam Greenberry Mooreand also basic vital information on William.  Since Izella marriedWilliam Moore in August 1864, we can say that Robert Moore diedbetween the birth of Mary in August 1861 and August 1864.

    In 1920 Izella was reported as head of the household withher sone C Min the home with her.  Her reported age matches her information, butson is reported here as age 34, which would mean he was born about1885.  But in 1870 Calvin was already 4 years old.

    After locating this 1920 census, the 1910 turned up, and correctlyreports Izella (Isilla) as a widow, age 68.  Here the matchingindiviual to C M is named Charles, age 24.  Her son Calvin is the headof the household in 1910, age 44 (born about 1866) , with Isillareported as his mother.  Charles was a later child,  The 1880 censushas not yet been found.  They were in Elk, Beckham County, Oklahoma,probably with relatrives there after William Moore died in 1900.
