I do not have any proof on this. The connection might be through the Moore family. John Herod, father of William Herod (1748 - 1836), was married to Mary Devane in Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co. VA in 1748. She was first married to Edward Devane. Edward Devane and Mary, his wife, are identified as administrators of Richard Moore in 1738 in Stafford Co. court records. John Herod's 1760 will is witnessed by an Ann Moore and there are a few other Moore connections to the family in Stafford Co. (if I am remembering correctly). I know John Herod (who is said to have married Caroline Downey) was supposed to have married Sarah Moore "on Shenandoah" in 1734 per some manuscripts I have seen. I have not done a lot of early manuscript research but have seen Bernice Swainson's work.
