I am looking for any information on a MOORE-EARP connection that may have been
made around the late 1700's. It is possible that the woman's name is Nancy MOORE
and she may have married an EARP. His first name is unknown. They would later have
moved to Georgia were their three children were born in the early part of the 1800's. It
seems they were all born before the War of 1812. He may have died in the War.
Because she shows up in Bedford County, Tennessee in the 1830 Census. With the three children. The children's names are Jefferson, Mariah, and Jane (Possibly Nancy Jane). In one census it mention that Mariah may have been born in South Carolina (no proof).
Jefferson would later live in Coffee County till the end of his life.
Mariah married Levi Cooke Anderson and would move from Rutherford County , Tennessee to Obion County, Tennessee, possible on to Missouri. Jane would marry Peter Arnold in Rutherford County, Tennessee.

Any information on these families would be appreciated. Spelling of names may vary.
Thanks in advance.
