Moore family of McHerrin Parish

I have a Moore line from Meherrin Parish, Brunswick County, VA. I don't know if they are related to your Moores or not as I don't know anything about their ancestors and am anxious to learn. My ancestor was Turner Moore; he married Rebecca Moss and they had several daughters in Brunswick County before leaving for Franklin County, OH where my next ancestor was born, their only son, William Turner Moore, in 1850. The family moved to Owen County, IN before 1860 where grandmother Rebecca has remarried; so Turner died sometime between 1850-1860.

The Moss family also lived in Brunswick County. I don't know the father's name but Holly Moss is listed in the census and she and at least one brother-in-law, one son, and three daughters including grandmother were living in Owen County, IN before Grandmother Rebecca moved there.

Nancy married a Wray/Ray from Brunswick County, VA. Ann married in IN.

Turner Moore is said to have had another family before he married Rebecca Moss so I assume he has children who stayed in Brunswick County, VA although our family knew nothing of his first family.

Any assistance any of you Moore researchers can provide would be appreciated.
