I've been looking for Rodney Moore who lived in the Gulfport/Mississippi City area back when I lived down there 1964-1968. He should be about 60 or 61 right now. His mother's name was Betty (remarried so did not have last name of Moore but I don't remember what it was). He had 2 horses - Black Jack and Charlie, as well as a Shetland Pony named Poppy. Joined the Army in 1968. No record of him being killed or MIA in the Vietnam War and he's not on the SSDI. Would love to find out how his life turned out.

With all that information, no one knows this man?

He was about 6' tall, had brown hair worn in a flat top.

Last time I seen him he was doing okay and lived off hwy 53 with his wife and kids. He still had horses at this time. I know him because he knew my grandfather and mother. I do not know his location at the moment cause its been a few years but I would say that he probably still there.

Was the Betty Jean Arnold obituary I saw in the paper his mom? I remember her name was Betty and the birth year in the obit was right, and she had a son named Rodney Moore.

Thanks for responding, I appreciate it.

I do not know if it was his mother or not. If I had ever met her I would have been young. I just remember Rodney because he bought my mother her first shetland pony when she was a kid and my grandfather cussed him out every time he seen because of it lol. I later met him through my mom at parades he use to ride in and from time to time spoke to him when I would bump into him.

That is definitely the Rodney I knew! We rode his horses in a parade in Biloxi in, I think, 1967. I wonder if that Shetland pony was Poppy? I sure wish I could get you my email address without advertising to the whole world.

Sorry I do not give out my email address to anyone. But if you have questions you may ask here unless they are too personal and you would rather not. The name poppy sounds familiar but I am not sure I just know my grandpa wanted to strangle him for it cause he keep saying it was the meanest pony around. Although my grandpa was ornery and hated anything meaner than him lol. I actually think I ended up with an appaloosa looking pont because of him when I was like two. For some reason I think his name was Poppy. However since then I have gotten old and gotten a lot bigger horses lol ranging from Secretariats bloodline and more but Rodney was a good guy if you find him keep me posted

What I'm trying to do is find out if the Rodney I DID find is the same guy as we are talking about. I am 59 years old and he is about 2 1/2 to 3 years older than me. Your description of your grandfather and mother, then you saying you have "gotten old" makes me wonder about how old the Rodney is that you knew. How old are you? About how old is the Rodney you know? Do you know if Rodney is his first or middle name? Is his wife's name Joan and his kids' names Donald Dewey and Dawn Marie? If you think I am looking for him for some bad reason, I am not. I want to apologize to him. And I wanted to make sure he made it out of the Vietnam War in one piece because he enlisted in the Army just before I moved to California in early 1968.

I am 31. Rodney would be about that age cause he is roughly the age of my mother. I never said that you were looking for him in a bad way. I just do not give out my email to people I do not know. I am TRYING TO HELP YOU DO NOT GET RUDE WITH ME PLEASE. Yes those are his kids and his wife. Whatever your looking for him for is your business I just answered your post. My age really has no valid info on you looking for him but like I said I am 31. All I ever knew him by was Rodney I do not need to be all up in his personal life, he had horses, we had horses, and everyone rode together. As a child I rode with him when my grandpa owned a bar up on hwy 49. N if this is the same person yes I assure you he is in one piece and doing well.

I had to re-read my post over and over because I didn't mean to sound rude and I don't know what part of my post you took that way, so now I have to apologize to you, too! I am sorry, I did not mean to be rude in any way. I appreciate that you answered my post in the first place, especially considering I've left it up here for over a year and you were the first and only one to respond. You said I could post my questions so I did. I didn't mean to get nosey with you, just find out if Rodney was your age or your mom's age. Again, I apologize. I will stop asking any more questions and, again, THANK YOU for your help!
