In Reply to: Joseph R. Moorefield Children by William Bartlett of 264

I have tried to reconstruct the family of Joseph R. & Sarah (Wade) Moorefield from marriage and census records.

Eliza K. b. @1819 (not proved)
Thomas J. 27 jun 1821-11 aug 1884 (not proved)
Henry b. @1824 (not proved)
James Hampton @1828-21 apr 1900
Sarah @1837
Rhoda E. @1842

The 1840 census also indicates another male born 1835-1840 in Joseph's household.

Sarah had died before 1850, and it's impossible to know how early she died and how many of these children were hers. It's certainly possible that all of those were her children.

Eliza K. Morefield m. Jacob J. Parnell 11 aug 1839 Muscogee Co, GA

Thomas J. Moorefield m. Frances Isabel Gerard 20 jun 1846 Macon Co, AL
and (2) Frances A. Wimberly 28 oct 1866 Chattahoochee Co, GA; she was the widow of George Washington Fisher.

Henry (Melchesidec?) Moorefield m. Malinda Johnston 29 nov 1846 Macon Co, AL. They were living in TX by 1860.

James Hampton Morefield m. Frances Wilter 1 sep 1857 Chambers Co, AL

Amanda Morefield m. Reuben R. shell 21 dec 1851 Montgomery Co, AL

Sarah Morefield m. George Baltzer (Balcer?) 23 jun 1853 Montgomery Co, AL

Rhoda E. Morefield m. William Henry Richardson 1 mar 1860 Montgomery Co, AL

I have much more information on this family and on other Morefield/Moorefield families in AL, GA and TX.
