McSwain, Moore, Rippy, Elmore

I am researching the McSwain, Moore, Rippy, and Elmore families of Orange County. I would love to communicate with those with these connections.

John Moore married Elizabeth Jones. David McSwain married Hannah Jones, sister to Elizabeth. David McSwain owned 190 acres at the Mouth of Cane Creek on Haw River when he received the land grant. He sold this 190 acres to John Moore recorded in deed dated January 13, 1787. I would like to learn what John Moore did with this 190 acres of land. If anyone can furnish me with an abstract of the deed where John sold this property, I will surely appreciate it.


Jean McSwain

John Moore and David McSwain were granted 300 acres on Haw River. When David left Orange County, he sold the 300 acres of land to John Moore. In 1792, John Moore deeded 150 acres to James Moore and 150 acres to John Moore.
