After more research and reviewing what I have, I have realized that Joseph Robert "LaNeave" was actually Joseph Robert "Leneave". "Rosetta" Frances Moore's first name was spelled "Rosaette". In 1900, when Rosaette died after the birth of Rosa Nell, Rosa Nell was taken to live with "relatives"(I think), the Edward Hammons Family in Darvills. The 1900 US census shows Rosa Nell as "adopted", and her last name was spelled "LaNeave". Being that she was only three months old at the time of the census, I assume that the Hammons' probably assumed the spelling, thus my grandmother, Rosa Nell spelled the name "LaNeave" her entire life, as did my mother in our family bible.

All other queries on Joseph Robert "LaNeave" are under the correct spelling, "Leneave".
