Re: MOSES, Alonzo or Leroy
In Response To: Re: MOSES, Alonzo or Leroy ()

Do you have any additional information on your Alonzo?

I found a very SHORT obit in the Houston Post (4/12/1985). It just stated that 'Alonzo Moses' of xxxx Fairbanks (St?)...' died on April 8th. Services were at "The Cathedral Chapel", with 'Carl Barnes Funeral Home' in charge of the services. Rev. J. T. Garnett officiated.

I looked at copies of Polks Houston Directory. A Mrs. Sophie Moses was listed at that same address in 1984, 1986, and 1991.

It appears possible that this is the same "Sophie" that married this "Alonzo" in Harris County in 1966. He was 56 years old (b. ca 1910). Her previous surname was Brown. [Could have been a second marriage.]

I could not find her in the current directory, nor could I find a Texas Death record for her. She could have re-married or left the state completely. There were 10 listings for a Sophie Moses in the Social Security Death Index. Narrowing it down to dates AFTER 1991 and those born around 1915, I had three possibilities. Two of those died in Florida and one died in Pennsylvania.

I tried another search and found an 'Alonzo Moses' listed on the SAME STREET and block (xxxx Fairbanks) - but a different address (next door). He MAY be the same one that married in 2002 (per Texas Marriage Index).

Circumstantial, at best, but something to consider as you eliminate possible candidates.
