The family of Ann Moore and John Anderson is one I would love to know more about, as they were living in the vicinity of my ancestor, Sterling Moore (bc 1765) in the Hawfields area of old Orange.I don't have much on Ann, except that possible children include the daughter Charity who m. Thomas Lapsley and a couple of possible sons (not proved). A Wm Anderson may have m Jennet Mebane and a James Anderson may have married Elizabeth (possibly Mebane).Do you have any information on Ann Moore and John Anderson's children besides Charity?
A second reason for my interest in this Moore group is through the Lapsley/Lashley (?) connection.I have heard that Lapsley is sometimes also written as Lashley, and another Moore group who lived a little to the south or east of Sterling Moore, but also in the Hawfields area had close connections to Lashleys there.A James Moore seems to have had two sons, a James Jr. and a son Valentine, each of whom married Lashley sisters, Nancy and Elizabeth, believed to have been daughters of a Barnabas Lashley, who had land adjoining.There is also a Thomas Lashley or Laspsley nearby, but I do not know the relationship, if any. Do any of these sound familiar?Have you ever heard of a Barnabas Lashley? I have completely undocumented and unconfirmed information that Ann Moore who m. John Anderson may have been the daughter of a Margaret Moore who was supposedly married to a British soldier and came to America with daughter Ann to claim land in NC. I have NO evidence to back this up and can't support it with any information I've ever seen. Do you have anything more on Ann?
