Alydia (or Lydia) B. Moore
My great great grandfather was Capt. James William Tabbot b. 1832 or 1835 Maine (possibly Washington County) d. 1906 Brunswick, GA (his father and mother both born in Maine) ...
His mother (my 3rd great grandmother) may be Alydia (or Lydia) B. Moore from Swans Island, Hancock County, Maine. But we do not understand why her last name was Moore?! ... Is Moore her maiden name or a name by a second marriage? ... We are not sure??? ... She is burried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Brunswick, GA. She died in Brunswick, GA in 1883. She was born abt 1806 0r 1807 in Mount Desert Maine. She came to Brunswick, GA from Swans Island, Maine to live her last years with her son and daughter-In-Law and their children sometime between 1870 - 1880. ... Her tombstone in the Tabbot Family Plot in Oak Grove Cemetery, Brunswick, GA lists her last name as "Moore" and that she is from Hancock County, Maine. So we think she is my great great grandfather's, Capt. James William Tabbot, mother. ... But, we do not know how to connect him to our family line in Maine or who his father was. If his mother remarried, who was her second husband?
