Rich, We may be looking for the same Moore Family. My 2xGreat Grandfather was John Moore. He was born in 1796 in Sudsbury, Chester County PA. or Lancaster CO. (One particular piece of Moore Land was in BOTH counties). I do not know who his parents are., Several names have been put forward but I have not been able to PROVE anything and in fact have found several "facts" that seem to disporve ALL of them. My brother's DNA in J/M172 which seems to eliminate the decsendants of Andrew Moore. I know that there were several individuals named John Moore in the correct time period to be the father or Grandfather of my J. M.
Mine married Susanna /Susan Lowery in 1827, Zanesville OH.
The Federal Census that are definately this John Moore (wife and family named) always have his birthdate as 1796 and state as Pennsylvania.
(One researcher has him born in 1798 and dying in 1847 in Ohio but my John & family are in 1850 Census in Falls, Muskingum , Ohio.)
Found in Ohio's census beginng 1830 to 1850 .
Sons named Abraham, William Henry, John Hestein.
Daughters Sarah, Mary J., Margaret, Cynthia.
it is not at all uncommon for people in this family to use middle names rather than first name. So my John may not actually be named John.
One of the Moore families went to Canada. and I believe had a son named John.
If any of this sounds like it might link up please let me know. I have spent so many YEARS trying to unlock this wall.
