About Myer Moses

A Patriot of the American Revolution for SOUTH CAROLINA. DAR Ancestor #: A082103

Myer Moses was an Englishman who settled in Charleston about the middle of the eighteenth century. He became a successful merchant in that city, and during the Revolutionary War lent his personal aid and resources generously in behalf of the wounded and prisoners and the cause of the colonists in general. Letters written by Gen. Thomas Sumter testify to the important aid he rendered. During the siege of Charleston in 1780, he suffered severely from the enemy's shells. His infant child was killed in its nurse's arms and his home was burned. His first wife (Unknown Frangipani) died before he came to America, and their only daughter Rebecca was married to Solomon Harby of Charleston in 1787. Myer Moses' second wife was Rachel Andrews of Boston. She and seven children survived his death on February 15, 1787. She afterwards became the wife of Solomon Woolf and lived to be eighty-two years of age and to see her one hundred sixty-third descendant.
