About Margaret Berringer Moore

James Moore married Margaret Berringer, daughter of Lady Margaret Yeamans (by a previous marriage).[5] Their daughter, Mary Moore, married Job Howe, another of the "Goose Creek Men".[5] Altogether James and Margaret had ten children, many of whom moved to the Lower Cape Fear region, where they and their descendants became known as "The Family", the most powerful family in the region.[6] Moore was the great-grandfather of American Revolutionary War General Robert Howe.

The Moore family imported over 4,000 slaves into the Carolinas, mostly for its own extensive plantations and farms in and about Cape Fear area of what later became North Carolina.

James Moore also had a Charleston house and a house in the Goose Creek area nearby to Charleston.
