Notes for Mary Farba Armenda Moore:
1 May 2006 received from Lila (Garrison) Reach, and forwarded from Worley Moore, son of Worley and Maggie, grandson of Thomas Benton Moore and Mary Ellen Clarkston;
<Lila> ... This is an email I received from Worley Moore (son of Worley Moore). He recently went to visit a daughter-in- law of Aunt Ferbie. I do not know if I had told you that we had a Moore reunion last summer. One of Uncle Edwin's granddaughters hosted it. She lives in Jonesville. We had Moores from 8 states. Had a great time. Well, everyone was interested in Aunt Ferbie and Aunt Una. (Aunt Una had a child (Melvin) out of wedlock) Mary Ellen died right after Aunt Ferbie was born. Ferbie is not listed in the 1900 census with her father!! Were was she?? I had always thought someone else must have taken her when she was a baby. Wish I had asked Mother before she died!! The Moore children were a close family. My Mother always talked of her aunts and uncles. However, she had no use for Thomas Benton. Always said he was a mean man . It has been said that he beat Aunt Una like an animal when she was pregnant with Melvin. The Moore cousin who hosted the reunion was childhood friends with one of Aunt Ferbie's grand daughters and just recently made contact with her again. One of the questions we wanted to know was the name of Aunt Ferbie's first husband. In the 1930 Harlan census, Ferbie says she was 19 at first marriage. Look on page 30 of Kay's book and you will see Ferbie listed as Ferbie Moore . The sale was 1906. Looks as if several of the Moores attended this sale. I see Uncle Edwin, Aunt Ora, Uncle Jeems (James).

Hello All;
This is my findings after taking a little ride Sun. We located Aunt Pharba's Daughter-in Law & her son in Corbin, Ky. & was luckie due to the fact that her daughter Angila was there so we had a very nice visit.
Pharba's first marriage was to ? Minton & they had 2 girls
Pharba's 2nd was to Ballard Gilliam dob in 5 children
Worley
\\\\
This 1910 census find on Farba Moore tends to confirm the early marriage record that we found in Harlan KY for Farba Moore to Chester A Clark. That marriage has no date on it although it is grouped with marriages performed in 1901. In 1910 she is listed as Divorced. Yet, we know that after 1910 she married a Minton and had two children, both born after 1910. Also, when Chester A Clark married Arminda Maggard in 1907, he is listed as divorced.
Thus, it does appear that Farba actually did have 3 marriages, although the first one must have been very short and no children came from that marriage. Her listing in 1930 that she fist married at age 19, can be viewed in 2 ways. In 1910, she is listed as age 23. If she did marry at age 19, then she married around 1906. However, her age in 1930 is listed as age 40. If she married at age 19 based on that age, then she married first in about 1909. That does not fit for her marriage to the Minton nor to Chester A Clark, as Chester A Clark is in his second marriage in 1907.
I would tend to think that Farba Moore and Chester A Clark did marry sometime between 1901 and 1906, divorced shortly after marrying, then she married a Minton about 1911, then married Ballard Gilliam about 1918.

Lila Reach; Oct 2006
have looked at the 1900 census that shows a Mary Moore living with James Clark. The granddaughter says Farba was raised by her uncle, McKinley Clarkston. That would have to be James. Right?

without reference to the daughter's maiden names, it is impossible to place them as Rochester children, or Thacker children. Why is the obit listed under CLARK? (gkvi)
\\\\
E. Bingham
This Elsie Clark is the daughter of Chester Arthur Clark. She is Susan Ray's grandmother. According to Susan, it appears that Elsie and James Monroe Thacker never married. Susan is not sure that Elsie and James Rochester ever even got a divorce. It also is apparent from what Susan says, that the relationship with James Monroe Thacker was not a good one either (no surprise, as the Thacker men were not great husbands). James Monroe Thacker later married another woman, and that would have been when Elsie Clark was still alive. So, it seems that Elsie left him after bearing several children, and just took back the name of Clark. Then, it appears that the children went by the name of Clark. Funny thing about the whole thing is that Susan is very fond of her "papa Monroe", as he was called in the family.
To confirm that all of the children went by the Clark name, I will write and ask Susan. She has told me many times that Elsie's relationships were strange or strained, whichever word suits best. I do know that Susan's aunt Phyllis Smith uses the name of Phyllis Clark Smith.
\\\\
To answer your question all of my G-ma's children were not Thackers. The only ones who were not were my Uncle Johnny and my Aunt Phylis. Their father was Pat Snodgrass he was a very well known preacher in Wise Co ( odd huh).
Susan Ray
My mom had the name Thacker and so did her three sisters. One child of my g-ma and Monroes died at birth his name was Milford Ray Thacker he is buried in a small cemetery in Josephine. My mom's sisters were named Madylon,Lillie Mae and Shirley they all were Thackers. My g-ma had two other children after Monroe they had the name Clark. only because there father was a married man and she thought it would be easier that way. No more obits have surfaced if they do I will send you a copy. My Aunt I was helping out with passed away a few months ago. Susan
