I did find a Hitty R. Moore b 29 Aug 1793 in Penobscot, Hancock co., Maine d/o Daniel Moore St. 1768-1827 and Bethiah Webb 1769-1860 also in Maine

And found a lot of Moor, Mooer, Moores coming from Ireland to NB

My gaunt Annie Edith Stilwell Moore married David A Moore born Queensbury, N B s/o John Moore b Ireland and McNutty .

David could also be the s/o George Moore b in NB and Mary Armstrong she b Ireland.

One or the other was in Kings American Dragoons 1782

There is also a Moore in Londonderry, NY 1785 went to Long Reach, Saint John, NB

Just putting up some hints for ya all and maybe someone can find something, but I sure can't.

It was easier before computers as all you had to do was write to the churches and the towns and boy you sure did get help at not cost except postage!!

Once again I searched all of the counties in NB and found the Moor, Mooer, Moore's in York Co. 

One of these could be Mehitabel Moore's father.

Land grants in other co's.

Moor Joun 1785 a Loyalist land in Maugerville

Thomas Moor says see James Dickinson 1785  I have the Dickinson family

James Moore 1787 wants more land on the Oromocto Lot #18

Peter 1785 came after war in 1762 Maugerville

Messrs, Moore see Davidson, William 1787

I have found that Mehitabel could use a nickname Hetty, Hitty, Belle or Bella

But I still have found nothing.

I am looking for the parents of Mehitabel Moore b 1790 in Waterborough, Queens co., NB Canada she married there in 1807 Richard Stilwell b 1787 also born there and they also died there

I have checked all of Queens co, and other counties to no avail and I can't even find a Moore in that area and I do know they are there because my Aunt Annie Stilwell Moore used to visit us in Massachusetts and she was from NB and moved to Maine. I don't know ho the Moore was but she did have a son Burt born in NB

I am going to see if I can find Aunt Annie Moore's husband.

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
