FOUND: Photo of John M. MOORE (1840-1900) of Henry County, Indiana

Shelley Cardiel (cardiels@comcast.net) has found this photo of John M. Moore which was taken at the Albright Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. "1840-1900" and "1st Lieutenant, Company G, 84th Indiana Infantry" are written on the back of the photo. Based on limited research, Shelley has been able to discover that John M. Moore had a connection to New Castle, Henry County, Indiana:
