1. I have yet to find obituaries or death records for:

John Francis Moran b. Nov 1853, d. abt 1910-1915
Eliza J. Moran b. Sept 1855, d. after 1939
Nellie Johnson Moran b. abt 1893, MA; oral tradition states hit by a car

2. I do not know when the Morans stopped living in the house on 208 River Road, Lincoln, but it must have been after 1952. Eliza shows up in the house in 1915 as a widow. I have 1939 pictures of the house. I visited there about 6 years ago and the house has not changed a great deal.

3. I have not been able to trace the children other than my direct line.

I have other materials on Morans. Any lookups any one could provide would be greatly appreciated.
