Note from Nona: There are two possible matches with charts in my files. One was submitted by Lenora E. Rupe, 26780 Oakmont Dr., Sun City, CA 92381 in 1990 (she didn’t subscribe and I have no current address information for her). She shows a Mary Ann MORELAND born 12 May 1820 Virginia; died 4 Jan. 1911 Wabash Co., Indiana. She was the daughter of Thomas MORELAND and she married on 2 Apr. 1840 to Edmond C. Bogardus born 18 Aug. 1819 Dutchess Co., New York; died 7 Oct. 1883 Wabash Co., Indiana.

A line that definitely does connect was submitted by Kraig W. Gifford, 14600 SE 176th #0-1, Renton, WA 98058 in 1992. He is not a current subscriber, so his address may not be correct. His chart includes John Andrew MORELAND born 18 July 1827 Indiana; died 26 Nov. 1906; married 19 Sept. 1850 to Phoebe Ann POINTER. His siblings were Stephen MORELAND born 5 Sept. 1824 and Mary MORELAND born 14 Apr. 1829. Their parents were James MORELAND and Sarah LEE who married on 6 Jan. 1820 in Greene Co., Ohio.

Hearts Entwined
by Ruby Earls Norton

This is a story of enchantment that started fifty years ago, in Birch Tree MO.  It is a beautiful story about two teenage sweethearts named Don and Ruby.  Don courted Ruby in the middle 40's, until circumstances broke them apart.

Ruby's father moved the family off to the State of Oregon.  Don served time in the U.S. Navy during WW 2. They lost track of each other.  Each married and lived their lives and never heard from one another again until last year.  A mutual friend of theirs knew that both Don and Ruby's spouses had died.  Through this friend, Nancy Butler Sisco, they found each other again.

After a brief courtship, they decided to get married and pick up the pieces of a shattered romance that originated fifty years ago. On 13 October 1995 Don 0. Norton and Ruby Earls King were married in Shannon County, Winona, MO.

My name and address is: Ruby King Norton, P.O. BOX 295, Winona, MO 65588, phone: 314-325-4383
