About Captain William Moore

DAR Ancestor #: A080015

William Hamilton Moore, born in Northern Ireland, came to America at the age of 15, in 1739. His Mother came over two years later with her youngest son. His Father and Grandfather had died fighting in the Irish War between Catholics and Protestants.

He was a Captain, serving in the Revolutionary War, (Rowan County, North Carolina Militia in Indian skirmishes). He served under General Rutherford, his brother-in-law.

Pension application S-183 and DAR service record #114,327. William Moore to Margaret Patton, his second wife, August 4, 1774 signed by Daniel Little.

Daughters of America Colonists have erected a sign on Sand Hill Road in Buncombe County, North Carolina "Home Place of Captain William Hamilton Moore". Here on land grant #1031 granted in 1787, he erected the first blockhouse-fort of white settlers west of the Blue Ridge. Captain Moore and his troops camped on an expedition against Cherokee Indians.

The Marker was erected by William Hamilton Moore, ggg grandson, Daniel Killian Moore, who served as Governor of North Carolina from 1965 - 1969.

Undoubtedly born in Northern Ireland, he is presumably the Captain William Moore who served in Revolutionary War, and presumably the one who married 1st Ann Cathey, and said to be the one who married 2nd Margaret Patton. That is, if you can justify that his youngest child with his 2nd wife, Charles A. Moore, was born when William was 65 years of age.

Some call him Capt. William Hamilton Moore, but as far as this reseracher is concerned there is no documented proof that William had a middle name.
