I'm looking for info on the families of Matthew Moore and Martha Mavity. Matthew was born abt 1791 in Kentucky and probably died between 1870 and 1880 in Edgington, Rock Island Co., IL. Martha was born 1784 in Virginia and died between 1850 and 1860 maybe in Fallen Timber Branch, Ripley/Ohio Co., IN. They married abt 1813 in Franklin Co., VA. At least some of their children were Elizabeth (m George Salyers and Hannibal Hillis), George (m Fanny Grinstead), John M. (m Mary A. Hizer), Jesse (1st wife name unknown, 2nd m Minerva Cole), William F. (m Parmelia Madox and Rachel Johns), and posibly Henry (m Martha Unk), and possibly David. I'm piecing these children and spouses together from old letters so possibly have some errors. Matthew and Martha raised their family mostly in Fallen Timber Branch, Ripley Co., IN, which was close to the Ohio Co., IN line.

I don't know Matthew's or Martha's parents or siblings and would like to.

If you know of this family, I'd love to correspond.
