I am seeking information on the family of Charles & Mary Moore who lived in the 10th District of Smyth Co., Va. as listed in the 1850 Federal Census.Charles was 27 years old, born in Va.Mary was 25 years old, born in North Carolina. Also in the house was James A. Moore age 4 b. Va., Albert S. Moore, age 1, b. Va. & Emanuel Slaughter. age 13, born Va.
I have some suspicion that Mary Moore was formerly Mary Pritchard, daughter of Alfred (aka Albert) Pritchard of N.C. She may have been the sister of Malinda Pritchard Slaughter, who married 1st William Slaughter & 2nd John Caudill (Coddle,etc) of Smyth Co., Va. Malinda had a son named Emanuel Slaughter born around the time of the Emanuel Slaughter listed in the Moore household in 1850.
If you have any information, please contact me at jpfannin[AT]hotmail.com.
