  • 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. 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. Mr. Moore enlisted in a volunteer company of infantry during the War of 1812, and was assigned to guard duty at New Castle, Del. He was a Republican, and afterward a Democrat, in his political views. James Moore married Martha Kennett, born in York County, Pa., a daughter of a soldier of the Revolution. They had children: I. Jane (Mrs. James R. Reynolds), died in Cecil county, Md.; II. Ann (Mrs. Washington Woodward), deceased; III. Eliza (Mrs. E. Lamborn), of Lancaster, Pa.; IV. John, deceased; V. Robert, deceased; VI. William M., deceased; VII. Sarah (Mrs. William W. Bowers), of Wilmington, widow; VIII. George W.; IX. James T., of Cumberland, Md. Mr. Moore died in Newark; his widow died in Cecil county, Md.; both were buried in Sharp's gravevard in Cecil county, Md.
