They must be brothers or cousins. "My" John born @1795 (from census' age 1850 in USA. )In Edentenny, a townland just a couple of miles from Ballinamore , according to an old family Bible. But it said just what I quoted in my Message. Just that he left Ireland and landed in Maine.My Mother, in her 90s, said that she thought he may have had a wife in Ireland. ? We know he marries Sarah Jones in Allegheny (Pittsburgh) Ohio in home of John Hazelton in 1823. They have 8 children. They are:
Edward Hazelton 1824, Beaver . Penn, William,1826, Columbiana, Ohio, John 1828, Youngstown, Trumball cty, Ohio, Susan,1831 Hubbard, Trumball cty., Ohio (died young). Margaret, 1833, Coitsville, Trumball cty., Ohio. Thomas, 1835 Coitsville, Trumball cty. Ohio ( I have extensive correspondence with his descendents). Charles,1838 Coitsville, Trumball Cty, Robert 1840, Mt Pleasant, Jackson cty , Ohio.
1850 census he is listed stone mason, age 55
Eldest son,Edward was my GGGrandfather. My husband and I traveled to Ireland Sept 2001. We visited Ballinamore just after 9/11. When I visited the Heritage center to look up my "Irish " ancestor based on that bible inscription I discovered that the Researcher thought we were" English". So I paid $50 (US) for an investigation by the Leitrim Genealogical Center in Ballinamore. When it arrived in California some weeks later there was only a bit of information such as anyone can find on internet. We decided it was not worth the additional $150.00 we were asked to submit for a print out of the data and a map.
The report stated : “Edentenny was not an official town land name and by 1857 was known as Killaneen. The Parish is Outeragh.(Outeragh) ,Barony of Carrigallen , County Leitrim, Province of Conaught .” According to the researcher The Moores were a Church of Ireland family.(protestant). Griffith’s evaluation of 1833 said Edentinney townland was there with families of Thomas moore and Hugh moore. I don't know if they are related to our Moores ..
So now it looks like the Lady in Ballinamoore was right. I do vaguely remember my Grandfather James P Moore in the 1940s once saying he was "Norman English" but I was so little I'd forgotten it until Ballinamore.
I will try to leave my email on yours so we can continue this off line.I want to read the family Records. I hope this helps future Moore reseachers.
