ASHWORTH, FULLERTON, MOORE posted by Brett Schormann on Monday, February 24, 1997

I am looking for information on James H. MOORE who married Harriette ASHWORTH in Orange County, Texas in 1867.  I have been lead to believe that one of them is of Indian heritage (Red Stick or Red Bone tribe???).   They had a daughter by the name of Lula MOORE who married Guy A. FULLERTON.  I am trying to trace any native American heritage that may be on my wife's side of the family. Thank you.
