Lemuel Moore (b. ca. 1772 VA)

Communication has been established with a researcher who is very well versed on the Stubblefield ancestry.  This researcher seems to agree with the theory that Lemuel Moore was probably the one who married Anne Stubblefield, daughter of Robert Loxley Stubblefield and Sarah Easley.  Others who were allied with the Moores of Grainger, TN have been located in records of Knox, Laurel, Harlan and Whitley Counties, Kentucky.  Lemuel and Anne were living in Laurel, KY in 1840 and 1850.  Knox was the parent county of Laurel.  Harlan and Whitley are adjacent to Laurel and Knox.  These other families include Rice and Wyatt, both of whom are known to have married into the Moore and Stubblefield families.   Other allied families include Woolum, Johnson, Johnston, Burns, Broughton, Smallwood, Ward, Slusher, Howard, Prewitt/Pruitt and Ragan.

Other descendants of this family have found records in early Halifax, Amelia and Pittsylvania Counties from which they have learned that James Moore and Mary Rice had at least six children:  William Moore, Sarah "Sally" Moore, Rice Moore, Mackness Moore, Mary Moore and James Moore.  It is believed that William (married Lucy) was the father of Lemuel, William, Azariah, Nancy Ann, and possibly Thomas.  Nancy Ann Moore married John R. Estes.  Thomas married Rachel Wyatt. 

Lemuel Moore's wife, Anne Stubblefield, was the granddaughter of Robert Stubblefield and Anne Wyatt (?), so the Wyatt family was allied with the Stubblefields and the Moores in Virginia.  On the first recorded Tax List of Greene County, Tennessee, a Samuel Wyatt and a William Wyatt were listed along with several Moores and Prewitts.  In 1797 Rice Moore, the uncle of Lemuel, was listed in  Captain William White's Company in Greene, TN along with Darby Ragan.  Darby was the 2nd cousin of Owen Ragan who was in Knox, Kentucky by 1820 along with other families allied with Lemuel Moore. 

Samuel and William Wyatt were descendants of Francis Wyatt and Lucy Mary Rowe of Gloucester, Virginia.  It is known that Anne Wyatt who possibly married Robert Stubblefield was born in Gloucester, Virginia in 1703, so it is likely she was related to them.

David Prewitt, Martin Prewitt, William Prewitt, Samuel Wyatt, William Wyatt - and many others. (Lemuel's dau. Nancy married Joseph Prewitt/Pruitt - grandson of David Prewitt/Pruitt - in Laurel KY.)

Samuel and William Wyatt were also on the 1797 Greene Co, TN Tax List.  In 1799 William Wyatt was granted land in Pulaski Co, Kentucky on the Cumberland River.  This is near Knox and Laurel Counties.  Also granted land in the same location in the same year was James Wyatt.  Samuel Wyatt was granted land in Whitley County, KY (date unknown).

Owen Ragan seems to be closely aligned with the Moores, Rices and Stubblefields.  Not only was he in Greene Co, TN at near the same time as David Rice, Rice Moore and Samuel Wyatt, but he was also in Caswell, North Carolina in 1790 along with Wyatt Stubblefield, some of the Moores who went to Tennessee and Job Broughton.  Job was the grandfather of Elizabeth Broughton who was the mother-in-law of Lemuel Moore's daughter, Mary.  Owen Ragan may have been the step-father of Elizabeth Broughton's husband, Hezekiah Smallwood.  Owen married the widow of Jonathan "John" Smallwood in Surry Co, NC.  She was Mary Indes "India" Howard who was living with a younger Owen Ragan in 1850 Whitley County, Kentucky, not far from Hezekiah and Elizabeth.

In 1820 and 1830 Owen Ragan was in Knox Co, Kentucky along with several Rice families, some descendants of Samuel Wyatt, the Broughtons, and some Moore families.  These Moore families have been thoroughly researched but no connection has yet been found to link them to Lemuel Moore.

Rices in Kentucky
James and Charles Rice were in Madison Co, Kentucky in 1820 and 1830 along with other familiar names, including Eli McAnally.  The McAnally family was in Grainger and Hawkins, TN with the Moores.  David McAnally married Mary "Polly" Moore, daughter of Rice Moore and Elizabeth Madison.  Rice was Lemuel Moore's uncle.  It is not yet known who Eli McAnally was.

Also in Madison, KY in 1820 and 1830 were several Maupin families.  A Mary Ann Maupin married Russell C. Smallwood Feb. 13 1840 in Madison, KY.  Russell may have been the brother or son of Elijah C. Smallwood and Nancy Benton who married June 28, 1814 in Madison, KY.   Elijah C. Smallwood may have been the son of Elijah Smallwood b. ca. 1770 of Surry, NC, the son of Elijah Smallwood Sr. (b. 1735/1740 Charles MD).  Elijah Sr. was the son of William Smallwood and Ann Grant. 

A Russell C. Smallwood married Rhoda Hankins Sep. 11, 1824 in Grainger TN.   He died about 1841 in Grainger, TN.  He may be the uncle of the Russell who married Mary Ann Maupin in 1840. 

In 1820 there was also a Robert Ragen age 45+ in Madison, KY.  Owen Ragan who married Jonathan Smallwood's widow, had a 3rd cousin named Robert who was born 1788 in Tennessee.  He married Polly Bewley Nov 27 1810 in Greene, TN.  He could have been the Robert who was in Madison, KY in 1820, although he was also there in 1810 which may preclude him from being the same person.

Elijah Smallwood may have been in Smyth, Virginia in 1840 and 1850.

Phebe Winegar (Wininger)
Phebe Winegar/Wininger married a Hezekiah Smallwood b. ca. 1826 on Feb. 13, 1851 in Scott, Virginia.  Claiborne Co, Hancock Co, Hawkins Co, and Sullivan Co Tennessee are very close to Scott Co VA.  This Hezekiah may have been the brother of Elisha Smallwood who married Jane Green 1835 in Scott Co, Virginia and the brother of Elijah Smallwood who married Nancy McKinsey Dec. 13, 1832 in Scott, VA.  Their father may have been Elisha Smallwood who was in Sullivan, TN in 1830 and possibly in 1840.

Hezekiah Smallwood who married Phebe Winegar/Wininger died before 1870.  His widow was in Scott, VA in 1870.
