Hello,
My Uncle was Harry Jay Moors (II)
son of Harry William Moors
son of Harry Jay Moors (I)

Uncle Harry married my father's sister (Frances Mae Collins) after they met during WW II. He was a ship captain. After living the US for awhile, they returned to Samoa, where they lived until he died. Aunt Frances remained there for many years before finally returning to her native Texas. She lives not far from me.

I'm looking for information on all of the extended Moors family - siblings of Harry Jay Moors (I), information on the wife/wives of Harry Jay Moors; siblings of Harry William Moors (sometimes called Harry Moors, Jr.), wife/wives of Harry William Moors, etc etc. This is REALLY a great find for me. I've always been interest in Uncle Harry's family.

Hey ya'll, from Dallas, TX!
Larry E. Collins

My grandfather was Mark Joseph Moors, Jr. I've never been able to connect the dots as to how exactly we are related to Harry J. My grandfather was quite dark and of Samoan heritage, therefore, I believe his mother was Samoan. He was a Navy career man and when he retired, settled down in Oakland California. I've always had an interest in H. J. as I believe I've inherited his love of writing - although I write screenplays as a hobby, not books. I believe Harry was a rapscalion who had a plethora of children in his travels. I purchased his book a few years ago "With Stevenson in Samoa". I've just recently tracked down his other unpublished works which I plan to purchase copies of. Good luck with your quest. Sandra Moors Mytys
