The last of six children, Stephen Moore was raised on a farm just south of Durand. When he was seven, his parents divorced, his dad moving to Nebraska and his mom marrying the prominent widower next door.
Mary Bakey was raised in Epleyanna, a German-immigrant community just west of Davis in Rock Run Township, Stephenson Co., IL. (Davis and Durand, although in different counties, are only a few miles apart.) Stephen and Mary married in 1899 in the church in Epleyanna. They settled in Davis, where they raised their family. Stephen was a farmer. They had six children, one dying as an infant.
