Thank you for your welcome letter yesterday! I thought I wrote back, but I'm still not sure about WT page navigation and I can't find proof of it. I am trying to figure out the various site protocols right now and am probably a few weeks or months from trying to manage a Washington County project myself. Eventually I hope to do just that. Thanks again for your help!

With regards to John Moor:

Looks like it should be fine to merge the profiles, then. Here is the entirety of the info that I currently have listed in a file that my great aunt sent me.

  • Name: Major John Moor(e)
  • Married to Margaret Goffe on 6 Sept 1754 in Bedford NH. Married to Eunice Weston in 1779
  • [Source: Louise Helen Coburn and other Residents, Skowhegan on the Kennebec The Independent-Reporter Press 1941, John W. Marchi, Bookbinder, Appendix II/ pg 1001.]
  • Son of Samuel and Deborah (Butterfield) Moor. Born 28 of Oct 1731 in Litchfield NH.
  • Was a Major in the Revolutionary War in the New Hamshire regiment at Bunker Hill
  • Had two children with Margaret, Benjaman and Goff

It looks like none of the info contradicts what is already listed, except for his second wife's last name...
