The passing of Steve, my cousin, is the impetus for creating a blog for the descendants of Sadie Spratt Moore and Wayne Moore Senior, of Leechburgh, PA. Whenever new information is found for their ancestors or descendants, feel free to add it. I’m hoping that future generations will enjoy learning about where they came from. ~ Briget Moore Murphy
