      Note:
      2nd Great Granddaughter of Jarvis Cane Moore.

      Message board posts, emails, family search submissions and others' online files citing her. She desends from Susan Carrico and Daniel Boyles.

      "My grandmother (nearly 104 years old) lived near her grandfather, Jarvis C. Moore. He was born in 1840something and died when he was 94. My grandmother was his first grandchild. He lived for many years after she was born. He used to talk about the family a lot. Jarvis was a grandson of Lewis Moore, son of Isaac and Sally. Nimrod lived in the area (Ohio), too. My grandmother said they were definitely brothers, so I am sure she knows what she is talking about."
      6 Mar 03 email.

      "According to my grandmother, Rena Melvina MOORE LYND who was born in 1899 and is still living (1999), Nimrod and Isaac were brothers. She said that her grandfather, Jarvis C. MOORE (who was born in 1845 and old enough to know both Nimrod and Isaac before they died), used to sit her on his lap and tell her tales about the past and family connections. She was rather certain of the fact that Nimrod and Isaac were brothers. Although I have not found a record of Isaac's baptism in Maryland, I did find Nimrod's and Priscilla's (I do not have Priscilla's entered on the database but I do have it), I am listing him as a child of Benjamin & Margere. Nimrod and Isaac (and possibly Benjamin) migrated from Maryland to Rockingham County, NC then to Grayson Co., VA, where Nimrod died. Nimrod's widow and Isaac & his wife, Sally, all then migrated to Lawrence County, OH where all three died."

      !MILITARY: Is he the Benjamin MOORE who was in the Rev. War from North Carolina?

      !RESEARCH: Recommend trying to find baptismal record of Isaac in the same parish to prove connection and to further research the Dorchester County MOOREs who went to North Carolina.
