I hope you're still at this e-mail address. Overall, the Moore family appears to be one that immigrated to Ohio and Illinois with my gmother's Beresford family from County Antrim Northern Ireland. Search the site for Jefferson Co., OH and I think you'll find Moores; also google the 1796 Ulster Flax Trust listing in N. Ireland and you may find Moores listed there.
I also feature a John Moore who was the 100th man to enlist in the 83rd ILL first call up in the spring of 1861 in my book South Under a Prairie Sky. He was a Monmouth College student and had a brother, I think (unless I made him up, can't remember). Check with the Monmouth College historian, Jeff Rankin.
