I am trying to learn more about my First Cousin Lewis Robertson, son of William Luther Robertson and Sytha Nancy Moore (daughter of John Wilson Moore (1867-1950) and Lunie A Couch (1865-1940). Mt mother, Azzie Lee Robertson (1903-1943) died when I was nine, and I have never had any contact with Lewis Robertson. I understand that he moved to Florida. Can any descendant of John Wilson Moore and Lunie A Couch help me with this missing part of my Mother's family history?

I appreciate Barrydog's replies. The Dade County citation is not my cousin. It was interesting to read the funeral notice for mother and learn that Lewis was a pallbearer. When Lewis' father died he and his mother went to live with her father. The census record shows the surname spelled as Robinson. I do have a vague memory of my parents driving up to Lewis' home for a visit and I think that the home was located on my grandfather Nash's farm. Hopefully, some one in the Moore clan will read this and share the information I seek.
