Oscar and Elizabeth Clear in Wilkes Co, NC

Iím looking for some information on Clears from Wilkes County, North Carolina.

My great-grandfather was Isaac Toliver (sometime Tolliver) Norman. According to family tradition, he was married to Louise Lula Moore. I know the Louise Lula part for certain, bur the Moore part is unclear. Iíve never seen it documented anywhere. I have her birthdate as March 17, 1863, but all I had seen for parentage was unknown Moore and Rachel Nee. Iím betting that Nee was a bad transcription of Rachel nee some maiden name that wasnít copied.

Now, Iíve come across a family Bible with lists my grandfatherís parents as Isaac and Louise and his grandparents as Elijah and Rachel Norman and Oscar and Elizabeth Clear. So was Louise a Moore or a Clear? Iíve really just started looking, but I havenít come across any Clears in Wilkes County yet. Does anybody know of Clears in Wilkes County in the 1860ís? Do Oscar and Elizabeth ring any bells?
