Ellsworth Alexander Moore was my uncle - my mother Helena Isabelle nee Moore Baum Annaheim's half brother. I've learned about him through my genealogy research. I am so proud of him and feel a kinship as i too am a biker. I plan on continuing my research to find his family and connect with them. Thank you for your service as a policeman, and as a WWI Marine veteran. We'll meet one day Uncle. Until then.............ride on!

Family member,
Your niece, Cindy Baum-Shupp
