Complete book on the ancestry and descendants of Joseph Moore and Rebecca Foster.

Joseph Moore was bom on 9 June 1754 in the colony of New Jersey, probably in or

around the town of Salem, Salem County, New Jersey (Moore 1978, No page). In a

biography of his son Joseph Moore, Jr., (the History ofthe Lower Scioto Valley, Ohio; InterState 1884:43 5), it is noted that Joseph is of English descent and that Rebecca, his future wife is of Scotch descent. Joseph's religious background is not known, but it is possible that he is a Quaker, due to the location of Salem in a heavily Quaker-populated area. There, Joseph becomes a young man, but not much is recorded of his early life. He was more than likely a farmer, as much of New Jersey was farmland, or he may have been a carpenter due to the close proximity to the Delaware River and the sea where the carpentry trade was thriving. In 1773 he married Rebecca Foster (bom 1 June 1755) originally from Cape May, New Jersey. She was the daughter of Nathaniel Foster (bom 29 July 1730 and died 6 June 1763) and Mary Elderge (bom 3 January 1737 and died 7 November 1764) who were wed on 19 March 1754.
