Conn., is the record of his marriage, which is as follows: "Andrew Moore & fara Phelpes yt was Dafter of famuell Phelpes ware married by capten Newberry, february. 15. 1671." Samuel Phelps was the son of William, the emigrant who came to Dorchester, Mass., in 1630. Samuel married Sarah (daughter of Edward) Griswold in Windsor, Conn., Nov. 10, 1650. Sarah (Phelps) Moore was born March 16, 1653-4. Andrew had a grant of land in Simsbury, Conn., in 1680, but he lived in Windsor where the birth of all his children is recorded, except that of his son William. He died there Nov. 29, 1719. and the inventory of his estate was made on the 17th of December following. The distribution of the property took place on the 5th of April, 1720. The estate was appraised at L320. Each of his nine children took his share of the property. The widow, Sarah Moore, was appointed administrator of the estate.

Must of been married also to William Lowry, (some confusion here also) Listed in The Tabb Family, The William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. 7, July 1, 1898. Link - https://www.myheritage.com/research/record-90100-349103006/the-tabb-family-the-william-and-mary-quarterly-vol-7#fullscreen.

Confusion on which Lowry they are talking about because we have William Lowry and his father was also named William in the Link above:

William Lowry married probably twice, as John Moore in his will (dated 1715) Names Uncle William Lowry & Aunt Rachel Lowry and Cozen John Lowry. I think we found the answer and why their is confusion, in this section they had the two William father & son mixed up and thought the Father William also married Rachel Moore but the birth and death dates put her to be the wife of the son William Lowry, unless we find other documents that show otherwise. I have put her as being the wife of William Lowry Jr.
