William Moore, b. in 1684, d. in Granby, Conn., May 9, 1780. His headstone calls him "Mr. Wm. Moor," and says he died in his 97ih year. He m. 1st, Elizabeth Case who d. in Granby (then Simsbury) Sept. 29, 1739. Her headstone says she was 49 years old. No record of this marriage has been found, but William Moore mentioned in his will a "piece of land he bought of his brother William Case." If by brother he means brother-in-law, then Elizabeth, dau. of William and Elizabeth (Holcomb) Case, b. Sept. 1689, was his wife. William Case was the son of John Windsor and Sarah (Spencer) Case of Hartford. Elizabeth had a brother William Case, b. March 22, 1691. William Moore m. 2d, Jan. 20, 1740, Damaris, dau. of Josiah Phelps, who m. Sarah, (dau. of Nathaniel and Sarah Porter) Winchell. Josiah was the son of Samuel, son of William Phelps the immigrant.

"The aged William Moore" made his will Nov. 7, 1773, and the distribution of the estate occurred Oct. 30, 1781. The inventory amounted to Ij^o. To "my beloved wife Damaris" he gave yi the dwelling house, 34^ the cellar and well, yl of the barn and of all his lands and movable estate as long as she remained his widow. As Damaris was 81 years old at the time of Williams death, it is not likely that she lost her property by another sacrifice on the altar of cupid.
