Summary

Photograph shows approximately three- or four-year old girl, Dora Allison, born 1859, wearing mourning ribbons. She was probably the daughter of James W. Allison of Co. C, 25th Virginia Infantry Battalion. As of 1870, Dora Allison was living in the household of David and Jane Moore in Richmond, Virginia, and in 1880 was listed as adopted daughter of J.E. (probably Jane) Moore in the U.S. Census. Dora Allison married Thomas L. Moore in 1885. (Sources: Ancestry.com and American Civil War Research Database).
