The Moore Heritage Project is a family-wide effort to compile, chronicle, and preserve the rich history and heritage of Joel Marvin Moore and Eudora Adeline Beauchamp. More than just a record of names and dates, this project will serve as a testament to the kind of people we were, what we were like, where we’ve been, and what we’ve been through.
The scope of the Moore Heritage Project includes research into the ancestors, descendants, and lives of Joel Marvin Moore and Eudora Adeline Beauchamp. This project seeks to honor the ancestors of both the Moore and Beauchamp families in America by discovering and sharing the story of their lives, their families, their journey’s, and how these two families came together with the marriage of Joel Marvin Moore and Eudora Adeline Beauchamp.
The overarching goal of the Moore Heritage Project is to research and collect as much of our family history and heritage as possible, then share what has been discovered with our extended family and preserve our history for future generations. To accomplish this, we’ve set out to meet the following goals.
The first goal is to compile all family history information from family members; chronicle all collected information; and conduct thorough genealogical research.
The second goal includes the writing, editing, and publishing of a printed family history book that would be made available to the Moore and Beauchamp families.
The final goal is to preserve our family history for future generations by creating a physical and digital archive of all collected and research materials.
The Moore Heritage Project was founded in 2004 by Robert R. Moore, grandson of Joel Marvin Moore and Eudora Adeline Beauchamp. While this family-wide effort may have had it’s official start more than 10 years ago — the groundwork and inspiration for this undertaking began many years ago.
In 1992, Frank Beauchamp, the brother of Addie Moore, restarted the Beauchamp family reunions in Texas. In attendance that year were descendants of the Moore family including Curtis D. Moore, the son of Addie Moore. It was at this reunion that Frank shared family stories and pressed upon his nephew the importance of remembering the stories, dates, and history of their families. In subsequent years, Frank Beauchamp documented and recorded the ancestry and stories of the Beauchamp family.
In 1993, Curtis D. Moore, the son of Marvin and Addie Moore, restarted the Moore family reunions in California. Inspired by his uncle Frank M. Beauchamp, Curtis committed himself to documenting the memories of his personal life as well as the family stories that had been passed down through the generations. He encouraged the Moore family to “be aware of each other” and sought to encourage a future family chronicler who would, “accumulate the stories, events, births, achievements, and the deaths of course.”
In 2004, after the deaths of his great uncle Frank M. Beauchamp in 1996, and his uncle Curtis D. Moore in 2001, Robert R. Moore, the youngest grandchild of Marvin and Addie Moore, started the Moore Heritage Project, a family-wide effort to compile, chronicle, and preserve the rich family history and heritage of the Moore and Beauchamp families. The Moore Heritage Project is a realization and continuation of the effort that Frank Beauchamp and Curtis Moore started so many years ago.
The foundation of the Moore Heritage Project is built in part upon the work of other family historians in both the Moore and Beauchamp families. Since the early 1800’s to the present, these family members have contributed to the documentation and preservation of our family history and heritage.
