Locating the father and mother of Mary Ellen McBride has opened new doors for us to enter. It was exciting to see where they came from but only gave us more questions as to where they went. The following is what we found out just recently.

We first found them in the Bell County Texas Census of 1900. We learned the town or area where they lived was on the line of Bell, Coryell and McLennan counties and the city would be referred to in all of those counties. At the present Moody is referred to as being in McLennan county. We have not been able to locate James Noah and Martha together again after the 1900 Census, but we are still looking.
