      Note that for some time there was confusion with respect to a Virginia L. (Jenny) Moorefield and this Virginia Inez (Jenny) Moorefield. Part of the confusion resulted from the "I" for Inez being shown as "L", which is incorrect. This led some to conclude these were separate people, which is not the case. There was but one Moorefield daughter called Jenny, and that is Virginia Inez Moorefield. All references to a separate Virginia L. Moorefield were struck from this database.
