Looking for information about BURRESS MOORE. Below is what we know.
A Loudoun County Virginia courthouse search and information from Pat Duncan via Genforum produced 5 tithable records, which indicate that Burress lived with Elnathan Moore in Loudoun County for 3-4 years. [Relationship unknown. Was Burres a son of Elnathan who reached tithable age in 1767?] 1765: More, Elnathan - 1 tithable 1767: Moore, Elnathen; Moore, Burres - 2 tithables in one household 1768: More, Elnathan; More, Buris - 2 tithables in one household 1769: More, Elether; Moor, Bures - 2 tithabless in one household 1770: Moore, Buress and Moore, Elithan in separate households
Burress enlisted in April 1776 and died August 1777 in New York. He served in Captain Gabriel Long's Company of Rifle Men belonging to Col. Hugh Stephenson's Regiment, which afterwards was annexed to the Eleventh Virginia Continental Regiment commanded by Col. Daniel Morgan. His service was attested to by (former) Captain Gabriel Long on 16 September 1811. [We do not know where Burress was between 1770 and his enlistment. Nor do we know where he enlisted. However Wikipedia indicates that Captain Long was from Culpeper County — where Elnathan Moore later resided.]
The Library of Virginia Bounty Land Records provides Captain Long's (untranscribed) attestation of Burress Moore's service; documents showing that bounty land was awarded; and an (unreadable) affidavit from Mary Crewser [Who is she?].
Fold3 provided 2 muster rolls on which Burress is listed.
We do not know if Burress married or had children and whether any descendants have applied for membership in the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution). However Ancestry's database of SAR applications thru 1970 does not include his name.
We note that Genforum has several people with the name Burress Moore [variant spellings] and hope that providing this information will add to our collective knowledge of Burress and Elnathan Moore.
