I'm trying to find a connection to the Moores of Brunswick Co.VA with my GGgrandmother Sarah Elizabeth Moore (b.1835)

William, Sterling, Allen and Drury Moore came to Lawrence Co.,Arkansas abt.1851 along with some Borahs, Nannys and Howards from Brunswick Co. Sarah Elizabeth came at about the same time from VA at age 16 or 17.The other Brunswick families founded the New Hope Baptist Church and she was a member there as well. In 1860, she was still in Lawrence Co. living with the William Howard family of VA.

I'm sure she has some connection to these Moores, but I don't know if she was a niece, cousin or what. Did the Moores have a brother who perhaps died abt.1850ish? I think they had a brother Richard and one named John that I have no info on and she may belong to one of them.

I'd really appreciate any information that may tie Sarah into these Moore families. This is a major roadblock for me!

Thanks,
