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.

I did some looking after I heard from you, and the only William Rose I found was married, and much older than Eliza. Do you know anything about him?

Comment by Tammy Jones on July 30, 2013 at 4:02pm

I am not related to the Moore's at all, my husband is. He is:

Michael Jones, his mother was Loretta Moore, her father was Stanley Moore, his father was John H Moore, his father was John W(Dee) Moore, his father was James S. Moore, or Jimmie. We have bunches of family pictures, is your family from Wolfe County? 

I started making a family tree in December, and was hooked within days, I still haven't done much on my family, trying to connect all of the dots on his ancestors. Have you been searching long?

Tammy, How are you related to Jimmie Moore?

I have found some new info on James Silas Moore b 1800, Kentucky.

I believe he married a Frances Herndon Cinnamon, in Shelby County, KY and went to Clay County, Missouri. He then traveled back to Kentucky, between 1850 and 1860, married and had children with Nancy McClain, left her, along with his son Henry, and went back to Clay County, Missouri. Where he died sometime between 1860 and 1870. Can anyone identify this James Silas Moore, now that I have found more information? Thanks, Tammy Jones

I am so glad I found your group!

I am searching for James S. Moore, who lived at some in the early 1800's in Morgan. then Wolfe County Kentucky. He married a Nancy McClain, and had several children, (I know this through family sources) although I cannot locate him in any Census records. Nancy appears with the children, but the elusive mr. moore is absent. Later in Census records for Wolfe County, she claims herself to be a widow. Any help I can get in finding information with James S. Jones, and his family members would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, I'm working the names Moore and Pitt in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I have Moore as far back as George Moore, born in England, Migrated to Gays Island New Brunswick. He was married to an Elizabeth Frame. Children were
Samuel 1839 - 1922 and David 1853 - ?

My Great Great Grandfather Creighton Hamilton Moore was a resident of New Brunswick Canada and Nova Scotia before moving to Colorado by way Of Illinois. Robert Dyken Pitt was My Maternal Great Grandfather, they also hail from the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia area. His Father was Thomas Pitt.
