It's very surprising that Brud Moran never married. He seemed to be quite the ladies man if the letters to him from women are an indicator. And he was very dapper looking!
We have quite a few letters from a woman who signs herself as "Elise D.A." Elise is mentioned in a letter I transcribed in October of 2013, from Shepherd Milner Fowlkes to Brud. Shepherd says "No doubt you have forgotten such a human exists, and I can only think of you as "Bob Taylor's barefooted boy" for I visited at your home seven years ago this past Summer, and I can't remember how you look, only that you were barefooted, but Elise Tells me that you are a "thing of beauty and a joy forever" now, and that you were not barefooted while she was at Dresden. She spent one day and night with me last week, and we planned many schemes to get you down here."
