In Reply to: Re: MOOREFIELD by BILL MOOREFIELD of 1495

The detail of your posting leads me to ask about another group of Moorefields.

A marriage is shown for 31 Oct 1827 between Leroy Moorefield and Susannah Throckmorton. From the census and some marriage records, the children appear to have been:

Nancy G. (b 1830-31), m. 1859 William T. Watts
Harriet R. (b 1835-36)
Elisha ) twins -- Elisha m 1869 Martha Ragsdale
Elijah ) b 1838-39
Susan H., b 1839-40
Martha T., b 1840-41
Margaret C., b 1842-43

Leroy Moorefield appears in the 1840 census, but not 1850.

There is an estate in 1879 for Susan Moorefield, who normally would be expected to be the mother, but that is not certain without examining the estate record.

A marriage is shown in 1860 for Susan Moorefield and James D. Conner. I have not found them in 1870 and in 1880, James D. Conner reappears as a widower whose youngest child was Sallie A., age 1.

Perhaps you could shed some light on this family.
