My family built and owned Lidy Hot Springs and I'm quite familiar with the cemetery there. John Moran is definitely buried there, unmarked. Even the cemetery is unmarked now. I have some ancestors buried there too.
I think his full name was John E. Moran, but can't be 100% certain - he was definitely born in Ireland, not France. Why that is given in the official records, I don't know. I believe he had 4 brothers.
Well back in those times it wasn't uncommon for people to lie abotu where they came from or who they were. Since Irish people weren't well liked in some places at that time he might have told them france. Thats just a guess though. --Kumioko (talk) 03:12, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
