About Adam Moffitt

Revolutionary War Patriot Randolph County NC Patriotic Service Supplied Sundries to the Militia DAR # 765842.

Excerpts from "Moffit Family" page 382 and 383 of "The Heritage of Randolph County North Carolina Volume 1 1993" LDS call number 975.661 H2h v. 1

"Adam, William, Hugh, James, Charles, John, Robert, Margaret, and Mary came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from Ireland sometime before 1750. The record is unclear as to whether the parents, Robert and Margaret, came with them or not. They stayed in the Philadelphia area for several years and then five of the brothers moved to the southeast section of what is now Randolph county and the western part of Chatham County, N.C.

William and Charles settled on the waters of Richland Creek in the area where Moffitt's Mill was developed. Moffitt's Mill was for many years a very prosperous and influential area of Randolph County, and many Moffitts from this line became industrialists, mill owners, and successful business people. "
