the following is from The History of Raymond, N. H.

By Joseph Fullonton

« Moulton Family Moody Family » Moore Family

June 1, 2008 by lwoodman28

John and Charles Moore came from Ireland. The former married Jane Morrison in Ireland. He bought land in Londonderry, and perhaps lived there, but afterwards in Chester. His children were, James, John, Henry and Charles, and perhaps others. The family here is in the line of James, who married Mary Todd, and in 1764, the year Raymond was incorporated, moved to what is still the Moore place, in the Branch district. Children:

1. John, b. Dec. 3, 1760, in Chester.

2. William, b. Oct. 13, 1762, in Chester.

3. Robert, b. April 23, 1764, was brought to this town when about three weeks old. He died Jan. 5, 1804.

4. Henry, b. Feb. 8, 1766.

5. James, b. Jan. 21, 1768, lived in Freeport, Me., died in 1797.

6. Mary A., b. March 5, 1770.

James Moore, father of these children, died in 1770. His widow married Robert Wallace of Londonderry, and the late John Wallace, in the Branch district, was a son by this marriage.

Robert Moore, son of James, married Mary, daughter of William Todd, Jr. Children:

1. Lydia, b. June 20, 1790.

2. John, b. Jan. 21, 1792. He lived on the home place at the Branch, married Abigail Locke of Chester, was an energetic, spirit-stirring citizen, captain of the Cavalry, one of the Selectmen, and died by an accidental fall, as will be found in the Chapter on Casualties.

3. Mary, b. April 3, 1795.

4. James, b. Feb. 27, 1799.

Children of Captain John Moore, son of Robert, and Abigail: One died young ; Lavinia, Eleanor, both live at the home place ; Henry, a trader in Chester, has been one of the Selectmen, Town Clerk, and Representative of that town ; John L., died May 12, 1851 ; William J., in Sandown ; Mary married Mr. Smith, and lives in Winchendon, Mass. ; Melvin B. lives in Michigan ; Elbridge G. in Milford, Mass., Franklin at home ; Catharine married Mr. Griffis, and lives in Michigan.
