Recently had C. C. Moore's DNA done at Ancestry and connected Joseph G.(1797) Moore's two sons--Henry W. (1825) and Patrick (1828). Both moved to TX before Civil War. I am new to this group through an earlier DNA test with family tree DNA. That the Moore's came from Moore County, NC is new to me, so I'm anxious to explore this new information. The whole family moved to Itawamba, MS about 1838. Help is appreciated

I have several families that were part of Moore and later on (when formed from Moore) Lee Counties. Surnames are: Cox, Morris, Thomas, Avent, Gunter, Vaughn. Anyone else recognize these?

Hello I recently joined the group. My husband, Michael Cheek, descends from a Thomas Peyton (1760-1765), who only lived in Moore Co., NC for a brief period of time (1816-1820). I don't think his children left any descendants in this county, but I can't be sure. He had two daughters. One daughter was Sarah Peyton Kimble and I know she moved with him to Morgan Co., AL in 1820, but I have been unable to trace his other daughter Nancy Peyton Stuart Johnson. Although I think she also moved with him to Morgan Co., AL, I am not sure and I have not been able to figure out who her husband was (Stuart or Johnson or both). She was born between 1790 and 1800. My name is Jessie (solvinghistorymysteries). Feel free to write if you have any clues as to this situation. Thanks.

Thomas Peyton was probably born in Amherst Co., VA...married in Granville Co., NC, then lived in Cumberland Co., NC for a time...lived briefly in Moore Co., NC, then moved to Morgan Co., AL, where he died. His will included the following names: Witnesses: Isaac Lane Hardy Burt Henry Ausley Note: Both John Garth and Nancy Peyton declined to adminster the estate. John Burt was named Executor on the recommendation of Nancy Peyton."

Oops again..I don't know if any of the above names left records in Moore Co., NC and I don't know how these folks may have been related to Thomas Peyton...I just know that the Lane and Burt families were related to each other. I haven't managed to learn anything about this John Garth. We are still trying to figure out who Thomas Peyton's parents were.

Not to tread on any toes, but since we are all looking for connections and if you have Scottish ancestry and your folks settled in the Argyll Colony (Cross Creek - Current day Fayetteville/Cape Fear River area of NC from Wilmington up and westward) then you can come join this group: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/argyll-colony-north-carolina/about
