A distant cousin kindly provided me with a brief history of the Bud Mathis Moore family of Greenville, SC written by Bud Mathis and Martha Brown Coulter Moore’s grandson, James Furman Moore. The history indicates that Martha Brown Coulter was orphaned as a child and was given a home by one of John Peden’s sons; James Furman Moore believed that it must have been Samuel or Alexander because her oldest son was named Samuel Alexander Moore (although I believe the Samuel was for Bud Mathis Moore’s father, Samuel Moore). According to the family Bible, Martha Brown Coulter was born in 1793 in Northern Ireland, although the censuses indicate South Carolina. She married Bud Mathis Moore on 29 Nov. 1826 and died 11 Dec. 1887.
I understand that a new “Pedens in America” book is coming out in a few years and that family researchers are working on it now. Perhaps this information might help in accounting for an extra young female in one of the Peden families in one of the early censuses. If any of the family researchers has any information on this family, or if there is any information in previous editions of the book on the Pedens – any connections to the Samuel Moore family, Bud Mathis Moore family, or the Coulter family - I would love to hear from you and provide any additional information that would be helpful.
