Looking for any connection in Amherst Co. with the William and Nancy Moore family below who settled in Franklin Co., VA where William and presumably Nancy are buried.
More info if needed, happy to share.

WILLIAM M. MOORE , b. ca. 1802/7 at Amherst Co., VA, d. 8 January 1884 at Franklin Co., VA

    Father: JOHN1 MOORE
    Mother: Doda (?) Moore, b. ca. 1790

    Birthdate derived from 1850 census, lists Wm. as 48 yrs.
    (see Citation for 1870/80 age discrepancies)
    Death Record Franklin Co. VA lists parents as John and Doda MOORE.
    The marriage in Amherst Co. is only one that fits with birth of Alexander.

    Name: Moore, WILLIAM

    Name: Moore, THOMAS
    Census: p.263 1810 Census for Amherst Co., VA

    Wm bought 15 acres from Jas. A. Thomas 20 Oct 1859. (Frn Co VA Deed Bk 26, p 209--Citation).

Spouse: Nancy Taylor, b. ca. 1814 at Amherst Co., VA, d. 4 April 1889 at Franklin Co., VA

    Birthdate derived from 1850 census, lists Nancy as 36 yrs. Perhaps Nancy Taylor. Living in Wm. Moore's hse 1860 census is Elizabeth Taylor age 85--probably m/o Nancy Moore?
