Thanks for the reply, Eric.The main line is as follows: Rev. James A. d. c.1704 -> Joseph (the tanner) A, b.1660N. Ireland d.1730 in New Munster, Cecil Cty MD -> James ("the carpenter") A. b. 1690 New Castle DE d. 1779(Cecil County MD) -> Theophilus A. b. 1714d. 1768 in Cecil County MD, m. Catherine Wallace d. 1775 -> Keziah (Kesiah, Kizia) A.b. ?d. c.1819 m. Joseph Young b. c.1741d. 1817 -> Margaret Young b.1769 d. 1835 Derita NC m. Matthew Wallace b. 1767 d. 1841 -> Eveline Catherine Wallace b. 1800 d. 1857m. Samuel McEwen Moore b. 1804 in NC d. 1858in NC -> John Wilson Moore b. 1842d. 1923 (NC) m. Margaret Gibbon b. 1840 d. 1886 -> John Wallace Moore b. 1866 Derita NC d. 1943 Clearwater FLm. Kate Thomp- son Boude b. 1871 MO d. 1955 (L.A. CA) -- Pres. missionaries to Japan -> James Erskine Moore b. 1906 Osaka d. 1989Memphis TNm. Nancy Phillips b.1914 Balto. Mdd. 1938 Balto. MD -> David McIlwaine Moore b. 1938 Balto. MD m. Grace Emily Cutler b. 1943, with six children and 15 grandchildren(32 years missionary in Japan, now in Orlando FL)
But there is another parallel line going back to the same Alexanders, as follows (dates abbreviated), in the opposite order: David Moore -> James E. Moore -> John Wallace Moore -> John Wilson Moore-> Eveline Wall. Moore (Mrs Sam. Moore) -> Matthew Wallace -> Alexander Wallace (1723-1808) -> Matthew Wallace m. Jane Alexander (b. c. 1690-1700) .This Jane Alexander is supposed to be the daughter of Rev. James A., but it appears to me that another generation intervenes.
There is a further Ann Alexander of Charlotte NC, reputed to be the descendant of Rev. James A., who appears in Samuel McEwen Moore's lineage:Samuel M. Moore (1804-1858) -> James Moore (1772-1834) -> Moses Moore (1731-1782) m. Ann Alexander (1737-1802) -> James (the carpenter") A. (1690-1779) -> Joseph ("the tanner") A. (1660-1730) -> Rev. James A. (1632-1704), etc.However, the Ann-> James -> Joseph connection is tenuous, with the only evidence (from Moses Moore's will) that her brother's name was Ezekiel.
