Do you have first names and birth years for any of the Moore's from Columbia Co., NY?

My 3rd great grandmother, Sarah Moore, was born in Highgate, Franklin County, VT.  Her father, Wiliam Moore b. abt 1800 was also born in Highgate, VT.  Her mother was Marion Hunt.  There was only one William Moore about the age her father would be during the time of her birth, and he was listed as William H. Moore.  I believe that William H. Moore is the same person as the father of Sarah.  No further information has been found on Marion Hunt.
I just recently confirmed - through a process of elimination that William H. Moore's parents were Richard Moore, who married Elizabeth (Lisbeth) Hogeboom  - by confirming William H. was a brother of others that were children of Richard and Elizabeth.
Richard and Elizabeth were married on 25 Sep 1784 at the Claverack Reformed Church, Columbia County, NY. A brief biography about one of their grandchildren (Humphry Moore, son of David) states "Moore, David, a native of New York state, came to Highgate, Vt., with his father, Richard Moore, among the early settlers, clearing a farm in the woods, where he remained until his death in 1879".  
There were many Moores living in Columbia County during the time that Richard and Elizabeth were married.  I have the baptism date of Elizabeth Hogeboom as
 14 Nov 1761 Claverack Dutch Reformed Church, Columbia County, NY.  No birth or death date of either of them has been found, but I'm guessing they were born around 1850-1860 ish.  There are a few possibilities, but I can't figure out who the father of Richard Moore is.

If you go to the word Find at the top right and page down to Surname, it will take you to About 35,291 MOOREs. My guess is that some of them would be from Columbia county, New York. 

You can enter first names in your search. To narrow the search, you can enter birth year and death year, in addition to first name.

Thanks.
