Capt. Moorer owned a plantation located off the Belleville Road near the Orangeburg and Calhoun County line. Capt. Moorer had several children by Negro slaves one of them was Alice Moorer born December 1860, my great grandmother. As far as our family knows, Alice had one sister, Cornelia Moorer Jamison, brothers known to us are Capers Moorer born 1855, Dr. Daniel Moorer born 1866. Hercules Moorer was born 1897or 1898.
Here is a bit more of the family history as told to me by my father and his siblings and cousins as well as family documents.
Captain Moorer loved his children and took good care of them. They lived on the plantation in the house with him. They had chores on the farm and even worked in the store that was on the farm. Capers was given land to farm, he lived on the property and raised cotton. Alice married Moses Glover and moved to Orangeburg. Cornelia (Neely) married Henry Jamison and also moved to Orangeburg. In 1899 both Alice and Neely rode out to the farm to ask their father for help buying property to guild a house and have enough land to have a nice size garden that would help them feed their families. Captain Moorer agreed and retained the services of his attorney to inquire about property. He found 3 acre plots for both of them; Captain Moorer bought them and turned the property over to his daughters. My father has acquired copies of the original deed.
Captain Moorer helped Daniel attend Meharry Medical School. After graduation he returned to Orangeburg to set up practice.
