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

only heirs of her deceased husband CALEB MOORE. The affidavit was
attached to Power of Attorney to REDDIC KNOX, authorizing him to proceed

in the hands of MOSES MOORE, Administrator (Deed Book "B", page 268,
