Miss Lula Belle Moore

As I have been told, Aunt Lula was quite a remarkable and open-minded lady. Although she lived in the times when an average person most often never left the place when they were born, Aunt Lula enjoyed traveling. She visited various countries in Europe and many spots in the US as well. She led an active life even when she got older.

I wish I could talk to her about various family stories and the family origins which she knew about.

Lula Belle Brown was born on 7 September 1886 in Collin County, Texas to Rachel Clementine Brown (nee Howard) and Robert Jefferson Davis.  She had a two year older sister Clevie May Brown, born on 29 November 1884, also in Collin, Texas.

Aunt Lula married three times. Her first husband was Charles Wells, born in 1882. They got married on 18 August 1918 in Dallas, TX.

On 16 June 1924, Lula married Charles L. Moon.  I guess she was widowed twice (?).

Lula's third husband's name was Moore. I do not know anything about the marriage, though. I could not find any exact information about that.

As far as I know, Aunt Lula had no children. She moved from Texas to San Diego, California, where she passed away not long before her 83 birthday, on 22 August 1979.

Lula Belle Moore came back home to Texas after her death. Her body was buried at the Restland Cemetery in Dallas, TX. God bless her soul.
