Yes, we are from Wolfe County, KY. I would love to see your photos. I am now in CA, at my daughter's house. Her paternal grandparents were Dewey 'Commodore' Moore and Bonnie Dunn. Dewey lived to be 100 years-old.

Thanks. Sorry I don't have those names you mention in my files. I have another "Mystery Moore" named John Moore who is either from Kentucky or ?Tennessee? and married into my Sumner family, but I know little about him. He just seems to be a different Moore than the VA Moores I have.

I descend from Matt Moore and Winnie (Carter) Moore.  They were from Whitley Co., Kentucky. Matt's Dad was William H. Moore, his Mom was Francis J. Davis.  Winnie's Dad was William Roland Carter, her Mom was Mary Elizabeth Bray.  If anyone knows anything about this family, please let me know.  There are alot of Moore's out there from kentucky...I realize this now since I started this group, yet I have yet to find anyone with the same line.  Good Luck on all your searches, and Thanks for joining the group.

I descend from Anthony Moore and his wife Zilphia/Zilpha/Zilpah Haines. I'm learning a lot about my Richard Haines ancestry on this website and through other books and records, but I know little about my Moores, other than that they may have come from Ticehurst, Sussex, England to Virginia and were at one time Quakers in Frederick, VA. Anthony's father seems to have been David Moore whose father was William Moore. I descend from Anthony and Zilphia's son David and his wife Margaret Sherman of Blount County, TN. Anybody connected?

My daughter's father is Jimmie Moore, son of Dewey, son of John. On the 1860 census, Morgan Co, KY, John is 6. (And I have not exactly proven this is her line; but I believe it is.) Nancy is 38, Henry 15, Cynthia 13, Mary 10, Eliza 8, Anna 3, Emily 1. At Family Search, Eliza and Anna's parents given as James Moore and Nancy McClain. I then traced Nancy; she is with her grand-parents, John and Elizabeth Sexton in 1850 Morgan Co. Nancy 28, Melvina 6 (this might be Cynthia), Mary 1. She may have had those daughters out-of-wedlock, then had the other children by James Moore, and Henry 15 of the 1860 census is probably James' son who is with her. 1860 Galatin, Clay Co, MO; James Moore 60 b. KY Zachariah 11 b. MO, Hariet Herndon 47 b. KY, William 12 b. MO. Could this Hariet be Frances Herndon? He obviously had two families going in KY and MO. 1850 Liberty, Clay Co, M); James S Moore 50 b. KY, Francis 43 b. VA, James W 11 b. MO, John W 8 b. MO, Henry C 6 b. MO, Zachery 2 b. KY.

Hello Jo,

I have spent the past two years searching for James S Moore, and where he

came from. If you have any further luck, please let me know, He was married before his marriage(s) to Francis and Nancy. Two if his daughters married the same Cinnamond, and Francis was the widow of Marcus Cinnamond.  

Please contact me if you make any further discoveries. Tammy

I have just joined this site, so it may take a awhile before I learn how to use it. I am researching my daughter's paternal great-grandfather, John Moore of Morgan and Wolfe Co, KY. I knew his mother was Nancy, but until I saw your posts here, couldn't get any further. Now, I have traced James S Moore. I did find him on the census in Clay Co, MO. He married Frances Herndon, before he married Nancy (McClain.) He had children by both women and I am now sorting out the children. He married Frances in Shelby Co, KY. Thank you for helping me over this brick wall.

I am looking for any information on John Moore and his wife Margaret McCullough. He was born around 1806 in the western part of Pennsylvania. Margaret was born in 1808 in western Pennsylvania also.
