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

      George W. Moore, father of Mrs. Anna Tibbitt, was born in Mill Creek hundred, New Castle county, December 1, 1822. His 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. James Moore was a millwright until his marriage, when he turned his attention to farming, in which he was engaged in New Castle county, Del., and Cecil county, Md., until within a few years before his death, when he removed to Newark, Del., and made his home with his son, George W.
      George W. Moore attended public schools in Mill Creek hundred, New Castle county, Del., and in Cecil county, Md. In the former county he learned shoemaking with his brother, William M., and carried on that trade in Mill Creek hundred, Christiana and Newark, until 1876. In that year he removed to Wilmington, where he worked as a shoemaker until 1890, and then retired. In his seventy-seventh year he is still robust in constitution and genial in disposition. He has always supported the Democratic party but has never held nor sought office. In Wilmington, in 1852, George W. Moore married Susan Ann, daughter of Tobias and Maria (Tyson) McKensey, born in Cecil county, Md., and of ScotchIrish descent. Their children are: I. James, of Wilmington, engaged in railroad service; II. Ella (Mrs. George W. Tyson), of Wilmington; III. Anna Belle (Mrs. James Tibbitt); IV. Lavinia Jane (Mrs. William Derrickson), of New Haven, Conn.; V. Charles, barber, of Wilmington; VI. George L., died young. Mr. and Mrs. Moore, with their family, attend the Presbyterian church.
