Notes for James Moore II:
At age 16, when he was old enough to fight in the Revolutionary War, he joined a Privateer schooner called the "Hannah."

From Nettie Griffin Turner's scrapbook, the following is a letter written from Elizabeth Vernon Moore's Great-Grandfather, James Moore II, about his service in the Revolutionary War:

"I was born on the 7th day of January, 1765, in Southampton Co., Va., about 50 miles from the Southampton Courthouse, now Jerusalem. I was the second son of James Moore and his wife, Sheila Williams, of Southampton Co., Va. My father died in 1778 in the midst of the Revolutionary War and was a firm and fervent man in the Cause.

In 1775 and 1776 I was anxiously concerned, because I was not of the age required for a soldier (16). At this time, I was only 10 or 11, ...but as soon as I was 16, which was in 1781 (the year in which Cornwallis was taken), I entered on board a Privateer schooner called the Hannah, which sailed out of Edenton, N.C., on an 8 week cruise....We cruised and sailed off Charleston, S.C., and took four prisoners and condemned them. ...We took a schooner called the Lord Cornwallis along with Governor Martin's effects. He was Governor of South Carolina and became a traitor. ..I wanted to cross over to Little York where Cornwallis as to be there at the surrender but finding I could not I went down to Hog Island and was at Petersburg, Va., when Cornwallis surrendered."

OBITUARY (Raleigh Register, Jan. 25, 1851)

From Raleigh Register January 25, 1851

Died, on the 1st instant, at his residence in the County of Halifax, James Moore in the 87th year of
his age. He was born in 1764 and, when but sixteen years old, chose the enterprising and adventurous
life of a sailor an entered a Privateer during the year 1780. In 179_ he settled in the county of Halifax, at the place where he died, and where he reared a large family of children, to all of whom, by his industry
and perseverance, he was enabled to give a good education. He was actively engaged in the business of a farmer and merchant, and amongst those who knew him, was remarkable as well for energy,promptitude and fidelity in his intercourse and dealings, as for hospitality and public spirit. Though he lived to follow to the grave, all his daughters, and a number of his sons, yet it was permitted him to die, in the midst of descendants and friends, full of years and surrounded by blessings, in the possession of his mental faculties, and in the enjoyment of that hope of happiness hereafter, which rests on a firm and unchanging faith in the promises of the Redeemer! in all the varied relations of life, as parent, husband, neighbor and citizen, he won esteem whilst living, and dying, has left a pure example to those who survive, enhanced and brightened by those virtues which were illustrated by sixty years of christian piety. He was for that length of time a member of the Methodist Church. Unto the dust from whence they sprung are committed the mortal remains f the good, but their virtues are ever fresh in the remembrance of those who feel that "this not all of life, to live, nor all of death to die!"

      107. Mary ?, born 1774 in South Carolina.

Notes for Michael Purtle, Jr.:
[Fleet.ged] Census of 1840 of Ouachita Co., AR lists Michael with wife.
Deed Book "E":Greenville Co., SC,:Deed by Michael Purkle, not joined by his wife Mary, is dated November 30, 1791, and was witnessed by John Cammack and William Owens, John Cammack's son-in-law.(1)-Greenville Co., S.C., Deed Bk. E, p. 49.) This deed recites: "I Michael Purtle of the State of Kentucky but formerly of Greenville County"... and indicates that some of the Purtle family may have preceded the Cammack family to Kentucky by a short time.

"Pirtle Families of Hardeman Co., The" By James Riley Pirtle:They had rather close contact in Alabama. For example, in the 1830 U.S. Census for Perry Co., AL. Jacob Purtle and John Purtle were enumerated as heads of family as well as John and Margaret (Pirtle) Cammack's son Michael Cammack, who was in the Old Town area not far removed from the Bibb Co., AL line. In Bibb County, Michael Purtle and George Purtle were enumerated as heads of family only a few pages removed from John and Margaret's son Lewis Cammack, who owned land in the southern part of Bibb Co., AL adjoining Perry County on the south. In the 1840 Bibb County census, Michael Purtle and Lewis Cammack were enumerated on the same page.

However it is believed that Samuel Pirtle, who traveled with the Michael Purtle family when they moved from South Carolina to Kentucky, and who lived in the Michael Pirtle household in Kentucky, was a nephew - the son of John Purtle (Pirkle) of Rockingham Co., N.C. Records indicate that in 1815 he moved. Michael Pirtle's Kentucky home was located about six miles southwest of present day Pinceton, Ky.

The Pirtle's of Hardeman Co., Tenn., are descendants of Michael Pirtle. Michael Pirtle and his sons, Jacob and Martin Pirtle, were listed in the First U.S. Census 1790, Ninety Six District, Greenville Co., S.C. We know that the Michael Pirtle family lived in South Carolina as early as 1771 because Michael Pirtle, Jr. (1771-1850) always gave his place of birth as South Carolina.

THE DESCENDANTS AND PROBABLE ANCESTRY OF ALBERT J. PIRTLE (with notes on others of the surname) by Sharon J. Doliante Printed in Vol 3. No.1 Summer 1964 of THE ARKANSAS FAMILY HISTORIAN
... The last son of Michael Sr. was Michael Jr. who m. Mary _____ and appeared in the 1850 census for Ouachita Co. Ark., listing his age as 79 and his state of birth as S.C. The courthouse in Ouachita Co. and its records were destroyed by fire many years ago, so we don't know whether Michael, Jr. left a will, or the names of his children; but the 1850 census lists some four "Purtells" in his household (undoubtedly grandchildren) who were born in MS., as well as a Jas. M. Purtell, Physician, nearby and an Isaac and a George, the last three of whom appear to have been his sons, born in Ky. between 1800 and 1815...
