I certainly would like to know how the Daniel Moore in the Herrod document is related to the Sara Moore who was married to John Herrod.

I know how Daniel Moore is related to the Herrods. He was married to Mary Jane McCarty, daughter of Joseph McCarty and a unnamed daughter of George and Mary Boyd of Stewart Co., TN.

Joseph is the son of Jacob and Catherine Standley McCarty of Stewart Co., TN. Recent disooveries have proven that Catherine is the daughter of David and Hannah Stanley/Standley of Anson/Tryon/Mecklenburg Co, NC, and Jacob is the son of Daniel & Agnes McCarty of Tryon/Lincoln Co., NC. This certainly explains where the name of Daniel McCarty Herrod comes from!

John Tagert, the sheriff of Tryon Co., NC is the father of James Tagert who was married to Sarah McCarty, and John's daughter Esther Tagert was married to David Standley/Standlee Jr, Catherine McCarty's brother. They were the parents of Abraham Standlee who married Elizabeth Parchment, daughter of John Parchment of Stewart Co., TN. I mention this only because Gerry Parchmen also commented on this original thread.

Daniel Moore was the son of James and Sarah Moore of Madison Co., MS, and James was the son of Gulley Moore of Montgomery Co., TN. The McCartys, Moores, Herrods and other families left TN to settle in Washington Co., MS Territory, which became Washington Co., AL and surrounding counties, including Marengo. From there a good bit of them settled in and around Madison Co., MS.

We believe that Elizabeth McCarty who married James Herrod was one of Jacob and Catherine Standley McCarty's daughters. Although she was never mentioned in his will, she may have already been provided for before his will was ever written.

My husband descends through two of Daniel & Mary Jane McCarty's children.
