James Moore
Posted by: Noreen Shelton (ID *****6982) Date: May 28, 2009 at 06:20:17

My relative, James Moore seemed to be closely connected to the Chamberlains, Thompsons and Carmichaels in Grainger Co. TN. He lived in Grainger Co. TN. from the late 1780's until 1804.
I have a copy of a court record stating that Jeremiah Chamberlain and James Moore gave bond of one thousand dollars and James Moore was appointed guardian of the children of John Chamberlain ded'd. in 1796 in Grainger Co. TN.
James Moore named one of his sons Thompson Moore. James Moore's sister Martha sold property she inherited from her father to Alexander Thompson. James Moore and his son, John witnessed the will of James Thompson, father of Alexander.
I know there were two James Moores in Grainger Co. TN. at the same time, but mine lived on property north of the Holston river and on Buffalo Cr. I believe the other James Moore lived on the north side of Clinch mountain.
In 1804 James Moore moved to Preble Co. OH. where he died about twenty years later.
If you know of any connection between the Moores and Chamberlains, I would really appreciate your help.
