Here's a little information about my Alamo ancestors.
Though I went to the DRT's private library on the grounds & did some research, basicaly what I gleaned can be found in Bill Groneman's well researched book "Alamo Defenders, A Geneaology: The people and their words" [which I quote from below].
This book lists all defenders & non-combatants who were within the Alamo & their backgrounds. A MUST have for any Alamo aficionado!
Moore, Robert B. [1781-3/6/1836]
Born: Martinsburg, Virginia
Rank:Private [rifleman, Captain Blazeby's infantry company]
KIB [Killed in Battle]
Robert B. Moore's parents were from Ireland. Their name was O'Moore when they immigrated to America.
Moore came to Texas by way of New Orleans as a member of Breece's New Orleans Greys. He took part in the siege and battle of Bexar and remained in Bexar as a member of Blazeby's company.
Robert was a cousin of Alamo defender Willis A. Moore, and Robert was the second oldest defender in the Alamo.
Moore, Willis A. [1808-3/6/1836]
Willis A. Moore came to Texas via Arkansas.
He joined the Texas army at Bexar on 11/26/1835 and took part in the siege and battle of Bexar. On 01/01/1836 he joined Captain Chenoweth's company.
Moore was a cousin of Alamo defender Robert B. Moore.
On muster rolls his name is given as simply "Moore".
