  • Notes 
    • from Biographical and genealogical history of the state of Delaware, Volume 1 by Runk, J.M. & Co

      His [George W. Moore's] grandfather, who was of Scotch-Irish parentage, was a soldier in the colonial army during the Revolutionary War, and his grandmother was so harassed by the British soldiers that she removed from her home in Delaware to a safer place across the state line in Pennsylvania. There James Moore, father of George W. Moore, was born. After peace was declared, Mrs. Moore returned to Delaware with her young son, and rejoined her husband.


      I wonder if the Moore family originally lived in Pennsylvania and during the war, Mrs. Moore (George W. Moore's grandmother) "removed from her home" in Pennsylvania "to a safer place across the state line in" Delaware (instead of the opposite as from the Runk book).

      The DAR applications with James Moore (Sr.) as the patriot, has him serving in the Chester County militia, 1st Battalion, 3rd Company, 7th Class (is this the "permanent billet roll" or the "active duty roll"; there is a difference).
      That particular company in 1780 consisted of males from Uwchlan Township.

      There is a James Moore in the Chester County, Pennsylvania census living in Uwchlan(d) Township with

      George W. Moore's father, James Moore, is listed as being born in Delaware, NOT Pennsylvania, on both the 1850 and 1860 censuses.
