MOORE, CALEB 1760 - 1821 WAYNE (County, GA)
CALEB MOORE, an early settler of Wayne County, was born in Pitt County, North Carolina about 1760 and was a son of JOHN MOORE, R.S. of that county. He married UNITY*, daugher of SOLOMON BRALEY of Pitt County (NC). They had five children.
CALEB MOORE and family re-moved from North Carolina to Wayne County (GA) about 1805-1810, and CALEB died there intestate in 1821. Record is found in Wayne County deed records of an affidavit executed by the widow October 7, 1822, certifying that she and the above five children were the only heirs of her deceased husband CALEB MOORE. The affidavit was attached to Power of Attorney to REDDIC KNOX, authorizing him to proceed to Pitt County, NC and to collect and receive the share of the estate coming to CALEB MOORE from the estate of his deceased father, JOHN MOORE, in the hands of MOSES MOORE, Administrator (Deed Book "B", page 268, Wayne County).
JOHN MOORE, son of the subject, later moved from Wayne County to Lowndes County, GA where he died and left a large family of children.

MY NOTES ABOUT THE ABOVE DOCUMENTS: Sometimes the name was spelled "More" and other's it's spelled "Moor". Most times I just spelled it with the modern "Moore" to save argument. It's still the same folks. (X) means 'made his/her mark here' per notes on the document.
