During the last week of December 2021, family members and I visited the San Benito County Historical Park. While viewing the model train layout with my son-in-law, the others in our party took the Historical Walk.

When we joined up again, my wife said, “Come and look at whose photograph is on one of the information plaques!” To my surprise and sheer delight, there was my great-grandfather, Alfred Moore!

Alfred Moore’s seventh child, Eli Swan Moore, is my Grandfather. Eli’s third child, Elizabeth Adelia Moore George is my mother. Both my brother and I were born at the old Hazel Hawkins Hospital.

The Association may already have background information on Alfred Moore, but I have attached some pages from “The Ancestry of Alfred & Adelia Moore.”

What a pleasure it was to visit the Historical Park, especially since I am a history buff and a model train builder.

Our family appreciates your efforts to preserve the history of San Benito County.
