John Lafayette Puett & Elvira H. Robinson family

Looking for descendants of John Lafayette Puett and Elvira H Roberson.

Jerry A. Taylor
P. O. Box 101
Young Harris, GA 30582


1. William "Billy" ROBINSON was born in 1822 in North Carolina.

He was married to Harriett E. GREEN (daughter of Thomas GREENE and Amy HILL) about 1847. Harriett E. GREEN was born in 1828 in North Carolina.
One Harriet E. Roberson was enumerated in the 1880 census of Beaufort, Carteret County, NC. She was living in the household of William and Elizabeth (age 32) Dill. She was listed as a widow and mother-in-law. Is this indeed the same Harriett E. Greene?

The 1880 census of Carteret County, NC lists the Wm. Dills family as follows:
William 41 (liquor dealer)
Elizabeth 32
Lissett 11
William 6
Samuel 3
Ellen 11/12

Also living in the household were three black servants all born in NC:

Julia Bryan 18
Lettice Chadwick 17
Augustus Dudley 13

in the NC marriage records I found Samuel Dill marrying Elizabeth A Roberson Aug 29, 1833 in Carteret, NC. These are the parents of William Dill who I did find in the 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880 census for Carteret, NC. Guess he didn't leave the state for very long. I did not find a marriage record for William Dill.
Do you have any info on Hayesville, NC.? My grandfather wrote a C.C. DeWitt there in 1916. Supposed to be his aunt Carrie. Have no idea where she fits in the picture.

4. Margaret Araminta "Maggie" ROBERSON was born on 1 September 1852 in Union (Towns) County, Georgia. She died on 28 March 1882 in Pawnee City, Nebraska. She was buried in Pawnee City Cemetery, Pawnee, Nebraska.

She was married to Sanford Vandiver MOORE on 2 March 1871 in Towns County, Georgia. Sanford Vandiver MOORE was born on 10 October 1832 in Seneca, Oconee County, South Carolina. He died on 24 June 1897 in Pawnee City, Nebraska. He was buried in Pawnee City Cemetery, Pawnee, Nebraska.

CAPT. SANFORD V. MOORE. The career of this prominent and well-to-do citizen of Pawnee Precinct is of that class regarded with unalloyed interest by every intelligent individual, for it presents a forcible illustration of the results of industry, economy and good management. From a modest beginning in life Mr. Moore has attained to a good position socially and financially, chiefly signalizing himself as an agriculturist of more than ordinary success, and making a specialty of the breeding of Short-horn cattle. His operations are carried on at a fine farm of 200 acres, pleasantly located on section 8, and forming one of the most valuable tracts of land in this section of country.
Capt. Moore is of Southern birth, his native place having been in Oconee County, S. C., and his natal day Oct. 10, 1832. His father, James O. Moore, was also born in South Carolina, Feb. 7, 1810, in what was then known as the Pendleton District. He learned the blacksmith trade when approaching manhood, and followed it for many years. He spent the closing years of his life in this county. The mother was the daughter of James Sanders, also of South Carolina, and of Scotch-Irish descent. She was born in August, 1809, and the parental family included six children, two sons and four daughters, of whom our subject was the third in order of birth, and three of whom are still living.
The Moore family, about 1842, removed first to Georgia, and then to Tennessee. Sanford V. acquired a limited education in the imperfect schools of that day, attending probably not to exceed a period of three months in his whole life. He attained to manhood under the parental roof, assisting his father in the blacksmith-shop, and at the same time occupying himself considerably at farming. He worked at the forge more or less until twenty-nine years old. At the age of nineteen he was married to Miss Sarah Gibson, daughter of Robert Gibson, of Tennessee, and in 1858 removed with his family to Webster County. Mo.
Mr. Moore now opened up a blacksmith-shop at High Prairie, and worked at his trade until after the outbreak of the Civil War. In the meantime he served in the Home Guards, and in 1862 enlisted in Company B, 8th Missouri Cavalry, under command of W. F. Geiger. They sojourned in Missouri until July, 1863, and were then sent South on the Little Rock campaign, taking part in many of the important battles which followed. Mr. Moore distinguished himself as a brave and efficient soldier, and was four times promoted, finally reaching the rank of First Lieutenant. He was soon transferred to Company F, of which he took command, and was afterward given a Captain's commission. He served thus until resigning, in February, 1865.
Upon leaving the army Capt. Moore returned to Missouri, settling in Marshfield, and in June, 1865, came to this county and took up a homestead claim of 160 acres. He lived upon this, improving it until he secured a warrantee deed, and added gradually to his landed estate until he is now the owner of 360 broad acres. The farm residence and other buildings are substantially constructed and in good order, and in his live-stock operations Mr. Moore has shipped some of the best swine ever seat from Pawnee County. One carload comprised animals eleven months old, with an average weight of 309 pounds, for which he received Philadelphia prices. The grasshopper plague, which proved such a detriment to this region, was a harvest for pigs, as they ate them ravenously and fattened upon them.
Mrs. Sarah (Gibson) Moore, the first wife of our subject, became the mother of five children--Robert, John, Jennie, Clara and Mary. His second wife was Miss Maggie, daughter of William Robinson, of Towns County, Georgia, and of this union there were also born five children--Roy, Clay, Dee, Edna and Lamay. The mother of these died in 1882. Mr. Moore contracted a third marriage, with Mrs. Merica Foster Nichols, in June, 1883. This lady was born in Towns County, Georgia, in 1860, and is the daughter of F. C. and Malinda (Osborn) Foster. The father is living in Georgia, and the mother is deceased.
Our subject during the Centennial at Philadelphia, in 1876, was solicited to visit the exposition as a representative from this county, but declined. In political matters he votes the Republican ticket, and socially, is a member of the G. A. R. He began at the foot of the ladder in life, without means or other resources than his strong muscles and willing hands, and has made for himself an admirable record.
