Query: Moore of Perry County

I am seeking any information about Abijah Moore who lived in Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana in the late 1800's. I believe that he died between 1870 and 1880 and would like to obtain an obituary for him. In particular I would like to know who his father was and if there is a connection to our Moore family of Champaign County, Ohio.

  1. I'm related to an Abijah Moore who was born in Ohio in 1818 and died Dec. 26th 1874 in Cannelton, Indiana. His first wife's name was Nancy, who died in 1850, and he then married Saphronia Evans. After Saphronia's death, he married Flora Catherine Deal in 1868. Abijah was a carpenter and owned land east of Cannelton-Harvesville bridge. Abijah and his brothers, Abraham and Elijah, helped establish the Morris Lodge #97 in Cannelton.
    I aquired this information from an uncle who did an extensive geneological study about 18 years back, hope this helps.
