Moore Family Sketch
An American Adventure
Augusta County, Virginia - "Peter Mohr (Moore) of nearby Falling Springs land" has been identified as the father of Jacob Moore and Rebecca Moore or Mohr. Rebecca married Adam Patterson in 1805. Both Moore children removed to Licking County, Ohio around 1810. Other researchers have determined that Peter Moore had two other children: John, born about 1779 and Polly, born about 1874. John Moore or Mohr may have married Mary Patterson, a sister of Adam, and moved to Licking County. Further research into the Moore or Mohr family in both Augusta County, Virginia and Licking County, Ohio is needed.

Licking County, Ohio - Jacob and Rebecca Moore relocated to Licking County, Ohio around 1810 with their families.
Johnson County, Iowa - Philip and Lydia and their five children were joined by Lydia's sister Elizabeth Patterson and her son Cyrus Patterson in moving westward to English River Township, Washington County, Iowa. By 1850 Philip B. and Lydia Moore brought their family of five children (John or Jacob, Calvin, David, Elisha, and daughter Sophia and husband William Billingsley) to Iowa. They were joined by other members of the extended Patterson and Morey families over the next two decades.
