      Wonder what his children Diane, Cason and Christopher thought about this will as they appear to be disinherited?
      Obviously, the old man wasn't very pleased with them or he wouldn't have virtually disinherited them...DAH.

      ------------

      Think Samuel A. Moore, Sr. became the father-in-law to Samuel Clark Swindle through Tabitha...DAH.

      ------------
