Question on Durst family from Greene County, Ohio

I've seen a series of questions and answers from a few years ago on the Jacob Darst/Durst family from Greene County, Ohio. Apparently, the e-mail addresses are invalid as I tried to write to the respondents.

My great-great grandmother, Nasarica(?)"Sara" Ann [Durst] Moor was born in Greene County in 1853. She married Charles Clark Moor. It appears that relatives of Jacob Durst moved to Illinois, presumably the Chicago area, which is where we believe Charles Clark Moor is from. The only child of Charles and Sara that we know of is my great-grandfather, Herbert Clark Moor.

Information on the family is very sketchy. Even surviving grandchildren of Charles and "Sara" know little about about them. According to our records, Sara was born near Xenia, Ohio in Greene County. Grandchildren of Charles and Sara were told that Charles worked for a shipping company in Chicago and was killed in a shipping accident in Lake Michigan. They have no docuentation or photos of him. Sara later married Eplure Renaldo Hill and had three children: Merle, Charles and Faye Hill. We know little about them.

To you descendants of the Durst's from Greene County: Do you have any records of a Nasarica "Sara" Ann Durst? If so, I would appreciate any information you have and pass it on.
