Searching for Annie Moore #3

Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak has responded to some researchers who asked for more "proof" that the Annie Moore who married Patrick O'Connell in Texas, lived there and in New Mexico, and died in 1923 was NOT the Annie Moore who came to Ellis Island. I was one of those people who, in the shower on Sunday morning, said "hey, I haven't checked out the Annie Moore O'Connell in Texas - I probably should." After drying off and returning from church, I did some census searching and found the 1910 and 1920 images with some help from a Google search. I also wrote Megan an email asking for more proof.

BOh my, did Megan do a wonderful job of proving her case to my satisfaction in her posts at Megan's Roots World. In addition to the case study, she provided pictures of 10 documents that support her case.

This is a case study with clear and convincing evidence if I've ever seen it. An excellent job - Bravo! Megan.

But we are still no closer to solving the mystery are we? I posted several days ago the set of questions I've been pondering and searching to answer, in addition to the futile search data so far.

Tally ho...
