Minnie Shotridge Moore

I can’t resist posting this sweet family portrait of Minnie Moore 1874-1916 (Mrs. Ben Moore or Lingit Sai-yet) and her three children taken in 1898. In his book “New Indians” unpublished, 2010, Dan Henry says that she was scorned by local Skagway women and her “half-breed” children were taunted by classmates. In 1906 they moved to Victoria. I will post the names of the kids later when I get them.

  1. I would like to obtain the contact information for any living descendants or relatives of Minnie Moore. My cousin is the granddaughter of Benny Moore and I would like to get in touch with any relatives.
