A biographical sketch of grandson Joseph Murtaugh Moore was published in "Louisiana Biographical and Historical Memoirs" - "Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Louisiana", Vol. 2, 1892:i

The late Judge Joseph Murtaugh Moore, of Opelousas, La., was born in Opelousas, September 28, 1824. The Moores were an old Virginia family, and the ancestral residence still stands in Berkeley county, of that state. Judge Lewis Moore was a major in the Revolutionary war. He married a Virginia lady by the name of Henshaw. There were born to the marriage four sons, one of whom, J. Andrew, was the father of our subject. Judge Lewis Moore settled near Berwick's Bay, and there became a wealthy planter and property owner. J. Andrew Moore, father of our subject, was educated at the Transylvania school of medicine in Pennsylvania, but never practiced his profession. He became the father of fourteen children, twelve of whom grew to maturity. The late Judge Joseph Murtaugh Moore was the oldest of the family.
