Hello this WARM U.S. AM. I have just picked yet another bouquet of Roses
here in the middle of The U.S....unheard of here.
I am 'tracking' two brothers who arrived in South Carolina circa 1780. They
arrived with a group of other travelers, I assume from Virginia. Israel and
Samuel Moore. From the best of my 'de-deucing', they were aprox 14 and 16
years of age. Their are reference's to a James , I cannot determine if he is
Father or Uncle however. This James was an Iron Monger...later described as
blacksmith. The young Samuel is a 'smith' until after his apprenticeship to
become a 'black-smith'. It would appear another member of this group had a
debt incurred on the journey, and these boys were trying to pay it. However,
IT is to disjointed to be accurate.
Samuel , the 16 year old is referred to as Moore, other times O'Moore. Would
this be accurate, or could it have been a type of nick-name?
In 1797 South Carolina (this is gathered from his info on Census) a James
Moore was born, he married Rebecca PATSON b. 1799 NC. They traveled to
Tennessee, Where they had James, Israel, Samuel, Milton and Fletcher Moore.
I would be interested in speaking to anyone who may be following these
