Descendants of Jonathan Moore

Generation No. 1

1.  JONATHAN2 MOORE  (JAMES1) was born Abt. 1773 in <, Edgefield, SC>, and died Abt. March 11, 1811 in Edgefield County, SC.  He married SARAH GRIGSBY, daughter of ENOCH GRIGSBY and MARY BUTLER.  She was born Abt. 1777 in Edgefield County, SC.

Notes for JONATHAN MOORE:
Jonathan Moore and Sarah Grigsby were identified in an Internet search as the parents of "James Moore" who was born in "South Carolina" in "1808".  Since this is consistent with the birthdate and location for "James Lewellin Moore", I have tentatively identified them as his parents.  I am still searching for additional, independent verification of this parent-son relationship.

Likewise, the siblings are fruit of the same Internet connection.  There is a possibility that these are NOT the parents and siblings of "James Lewellin Moore".  If they are the correct parents and siblings, I have another collection of Moore descendents based on James' sister Nancy, who married a James Talley Dozier, who moved with Nancy (Moore) from North Carolina.[Sarah Sallie Grigsby.FTW]

Notes for REVEREND ANDREW GAILLARD MOORE:
Andrew's occupation was reported to be a Preacher on his gravestone and by John C. Moore, (as remembered by Thermon E. Moore).  However, in the History of Baker County reference, Andrew was never named as a preacher of the Notchaway Baptist Church, where he was a long-time member.  The Andrew Moore family was reported as one of the first families who were members of the Notchaway Baptist Church in 1863.  He was later reported as a male member of Notchaway Church in 1891.

Andrew Moore was also reported as a charter member of the County Line Baptist Church when it started in 1878.  Thermon Moore reported that the County Line Church may have been a mission of the Notchaway Church, and Andrew may have supported the new mission until it was established and then returned to his home church.  Thermon also reported that his father, John C. Moore was very close to both churches and attended both, even though he was a member of the Notchaway Church.

A. G. Moore served as a Justice of the Peace for Baker County in 1889.  He also served on the Baker County School Board of Education from 1894 to 1930 (Possible typo, since 36 years would be an extremely long time to serve on the board).  As a matter of some interest, his Great Grandson, John Henry Moore (son of Hilton, grandson of John Clifton) is still serving on the Baker County School Board of Education beginning in 1989 through (at least) 2000.  (ref. History of Baker County)
