Just posting to clarify
The Elizabeth Moore estate records above refer to Elizabeth, the wife of Edward Moore (sometimes callled Jr or "little" Edward Moore) who died in 1783 leaving a will.
Their son James acted as Extr for both his father and Mother.
I am not sure of the realtionship between the 2 Edwards as my Edwards will was witnessed by the Sr Edward, but neither he or any of his children was mentioned in the will of Edward Senior whose wife was Mary.
What the men did have in common was Wilson Taylor.

daughter of little Edward Moore deced and is appd guardian to her 6 children
He enters bond of L200 for admr and L300 for guardianship with Drury Taylor

Tho I am not sure just why Wilson would have to be named guardian of his own children.
I have not seen the orignals of these cites.
Edward's Daughter Elizabeth was married to Noah Strickland and son William to Rahab Strickland dau of Mark.
