IdeaGo with your hunches

Just have to say sometimes you have to go with your hunches about a certain genealogy clue or resource you may not be 100% sure of. I recently mentioned I had found some info on my 2nd great grand uncle. Well anyhow I went back and rechecked some data I had looked at years ago and had suspected this was him and his family on Census records for 1860, 1870, and 1880. I wasn't sure it was him on two of them, but I had recently found one child listed for him and this child was shown on the 1870 census. the other children listed were also shown on the 1860 and 1880 census. Also shown was his wife's mother and a relative with same last name as his wife (possibly a brother or nephew). When all was said and done I found 26 new relatives and epanded my research of the Moore family into Texas, Michigan & California. This also was enough proof that the data I was given by a distant cousin years ago was correct for this family. I had reluctantly used his information even though he had no sources and I hadn't been able to verify any of it until this year. I wonder now if a guy I went through basic training with a Robert John Moore from Texas may have been a relative. I know he looked like he could be my brother, and drill sgt's used to call us the Moore brothers.
