Some of the Zachariah Moore children migrated to Texas, while some remained in Georgia. Four brothers fought together in the Civil War. The eldest son, Robert M. Moore came to Blount County, AL in the 1860s. The authors present the history of Robert M. Moore and his descendants and illustrate the impact of this pioneer family through story, historical photos, and genealogy. Included among the story are numerous historical pictures of the various families, their homes, burial places, and monuments. A documentary of life on the Moore farm with its tenant homes and sharecroppers is one highlight of the book. The story of Susan Moore, the person- Susan Moore, the school- and Susan Moore, the town weaves a thread throughout the book.

When speaking from a genealogists perspective, one might say she has spent her post- retirement years digging up bones. She has delved into family history- exploring cemeteries, researching family stories, and making genealogy come alive.
