- OBEDIAH1 MORE I was born in 1725 in England, near London, according to Rev. Cecil Little, whose grandmother held records of old More/Moor/Moore family histories carefully.
Rev. Little told this author and her son of these family histories back to England and down to the modern era on a long day of research on August 16 of 1998, concluded in his home in Clanton, Chilton County, Alabama. Rev. Little took us to the old Moore Cemetery, then to the Chestnut Creek Baptist Church Cemetery where many other Moore kin are buried, some distance away and adjacent to the Chestnut Creek Baptist Church where John Moore Esq., Cecil Little’s 3rd Great-Grandfather, was deacon. Rev. Little had access to all of the old records when he did his theology thesis on the Chestnut Creek Baptist Church. The land where the old Moore Cemetery is found was once the “homeplace” of Obadiah and Winney Moore’s son, John Moore Esq., Justice of the Peace and Deacon of the Chestnut Creek Baptist Church. Rev. Little hoped we would preserve the records of his family, and file with the NS DAR on Obadiah Moore, Pvt. North Carolina Continental Line’s patriot service. Later, that was done, submitted in 2003 and accepted three and one half years later in October of 2006. The lengthy approval was due to fact that it was a "supplemental patriot application" filed on a woman already a member of the NS DAR, not a new applicant to be a member. Many women file and the wait can be lengthy for “supplemental” patriot files, as new applicants for membership are reviewed first.
National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has, by October 23, of 2017, approved applicants to the society on the lines of several children of Obadiah and Winney Moore. Descendants of John, Dicey, and Levi have all been accepted. Descendants of Francis “Fannie” connect to Dicey’s line via marriage early on and are eligible on that descent. Only Jesse’s descendants have yet to file an application with the NS DAR. Approval for acceptance requires submission of legal proof of birth, marriage, death and link to the next generation for every generation back to the Revolutionary Patriot, which must be approved by licensed, professional genealogists employed by the NS DAR in their Washington D.C. headquarters. The couple have ONLY five known children, none of whom ever lived in Tennessee. Those down this More/Moor/Moore line migrated from England, to Princess Anne County, Virginia, then to Pitt County, North Carolina, then to Columbia County, then Jasper County Georgia, and then to old Autauga County, Alabama on Chestnut Creek. Later, this region became Baker County, then Chilton County. Obadiah and Winney Moore, and John and Amanda Maria/Mary called “Polly” Moore are buried on land owned on Chestnut Creek by John Moore is what became the old Moore Cemetery, a Historic Alabama Cemetery, closed to modern graves. This old historic cemetery contains the graves of a total of 37 people according to old records, about 18 graves are identified by name. Download the file below for a record of descendants, as this author has them in her files, as of October 24, 2017.
