my grandfather is related to Eli moore who was a brother to Pinkney. Pinkney had a son, William whom we know to have been killed in the Civil War. They are all from Long Creek, Walhalla area. James Perry who married Laura Thrift was William's younger brother. One of my cousins has done extensive research.

We are trying to find out if William was possibly know as William Riley Moore.

Pinkney's parents were Jordon Moore and Mary Woodall. Pinkey married a Mary Swofford, while Elii married Emily Shedd. Their daughter Emily had a son Archelaus, he was my great grandfather. Eli also died as a result of the civil war and we have been able to obtained a marker for him. He is believed to be buried at Kennesaw, GA.
