MOORE FAMILY LINE

.pdf of the Moore Family Register Report
.pdf of the Moore Family Descendant Chart



As with the Mower family, the variations on the name "Moore" include More, Moor, Moors, Moore, Moores, Mooers, Mowre, Mowear, Mower and even Mare. I am deeply indebted to Carolyn Depp who provided the research you see below. She also cites the work of Norma Karram.

Indian Raids were a well-founded fear and hazard of living in the wilderness. Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, in her book Good Wives... points out that "...[b]etween 1689 and 1730 nearly three hundred women, men and children were taken captive from northern New England..." thus lending "...an augmented fear of going to the well after dark or of sending children to a nearby wooded fringe to gather berries..." (p. 202). Thus the fate of two of William Moore's children William, Jr. & Mary -- illustrate the fact that in the 1600s and early 1700s, what is now the state of Maine was very much the "wilderness frontier" of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Both William, Jr. & Mary were captured during an Indian Raid in 1694. William was later found living in Canada, Mary was never heard from again.
