Martin Morefield was on the Halifax Co, VA Personal Property Tax List 1814 and 1815. He married Sarah Weaver 3 sep 1813 Person Co, NC (which borders Halifax, VA). He married Mary "Polly" Weaver 24 sep 1817 Blount, TN. In 1829 he was mentioned in the will of William Thomas in Blount, TN.

I havent' found him in 1830, but in 1840 and 1850, he was in Smith, TN. In 1860 he was in Williamson, IL.

Walter's brothers Thomas and Johnson also moved to IL. Their oldest brother James Mofield stayed in Smith Co, TN, where he had 6 sons, accounting for most, if not all, of the Mofields in that region of TN.
