MOSES MOORE OF LAUREL CO KENTUCKY
(May 25, 2004)

Census research on Moses Moore of Laurel County Kentucky has been completed but the GEDCOM file will not be published until further verification can be obtained.  However, I feel quite confident about the connections made as a result of this census analysis so I'm posting it here for others to see - hoping to hear from someone who might have more information.  Please use caution because the only source for the sons of Moses are connections made from analyzing census records.  See the Lemuel Moore Narrative for further details about this analysis.  If you have any information about these people please contact me by email.

MOSES MOORE, born about 1762 in Virginia and was married to Unknown (could be Elizabeth Davis).  It is believed that he was in Greene County TN in 1805 and in Laurel County KY by 1808. 

Moses had the following children (unverified):
