MY DEAR WIFE AND CHILDREN, 

WHOSE ASSISTANCE AND ENCOURAGEMENT HAVE MATERIAI,I.Y 
AIDED ME IN THIS ARDUOUS LABOR, 

AND 

TO MY KINDRED OF THE "MOORE" LINE, 

this work is most respectfui,i.y dedicated 

By the Author. 



PREFACE. 



The author began collecting data for this work more 
than twenty years ago. His object was to obtain for him- 
self and family a record of his ancestors and present kins- 
folk. From his earliest boyhood he has always had a 
fondness for his relatives. Being deprived in very early 
life of his father, he never had the opportunity to obtain 
from him any information in reference to his ancestors. 
The author has often, however, heard his father speak 
with much tender affection of the latter's mother, whose 
death occurred when he was a mere boy, and which seemed 
to make a lasting impression on him. This led the author 
to inquire, as fully as he could, into the character and 
ancestry of this dear mother. In very earh- manhood lie 
became an interested student of heredity, and he is a great 
believer in inherited traits of character; and whilst he is 
willing to admit that inherited traits may be greatly modi- 
fied by environment, he is none the less convinced of the 
importance of a close study of heredity. 

The author was anxious to know from whence he in- 
herited certain traits of character of which he knew he was 
possessed, and which he felt were not transmitted from his 
mother's family or the ancestors of his surname. He had 
not proceeded far in this study until he discovered he w^as 
more of a Moore in disposition and character, in many 
respects, than Passmore, or Brown. 

The man who says he cares nothing for his ancestors, or 
from whence he sprang, whether they were moral or im- 
moral, intellectual or ignorant, cruel, crafty, miserly or 
otherwise, simply advertises himself as either an ignoramus 
or a blatant nonentity. Such a man frequently points to 
a person who has been successful, and as having attained 
eminence in the world, both for intelligence and goodness, 

(V) 



vi . PREFACE. 

whose parents were anything else but worthy. This only 
proves that such an one has inherited from some ancestor, 
near or remote, such traits of character that enabled him 
to overcome his environments. The advantage of parents 
studying this subject of heredity as far remote as possible, 
will be apparent to any thoughtful father or mother, that 
they may make strenuous efforts to protect their loved 
ones from any especial trait which might be developed in 
their child. 

Suppose a father has been very intemperate; his chil- 
dren may, by bitter experience, be led to be total abstain- 
ers. Would they not, however, be derelict in duty if they 
did not throw especial protection around their offspring in 
this particular direction? What is true of this inherited 
trait, is true of any others. If the author can arouse in 
you, his kinsfolk, a desire to study the subject of heredity, 
and induce you to make practical use of it, he has accom- 
plished a lasting good for your descendants. 

The more the author studied into the ancestry of his 
paternal grandmother, the more deeply he became inter- 
ested, and finally decided to publish the work, if the kins- 
folk felt sufficient interest to assist in the financial ex- 
penditure necessan,'. 

He has devoted much time and thought to the study of 
this subject; it has been a pleasure to him to do so. He 
is very desirous that all his kindred shall have the ad- 
vantage of this thought and study, v/ho care anything for 
their ancestors. 

He has no doubt but that there are many errors. 
Many correspondents were very careless in writing letters, 
many dates had to be changed, knowing they were not 
correct. 

That there is more said about certain members of the 
family than others, is simply because their immediate 
descendants gave the author the information he asked, 
whilst others declined or neglected to do so. It was no 
fault of the author. 

The author has given considerable space to the enuncia- 
tion of the principles of the Society of Friends, because he 



PREFACE. vii 

feels these truths will ever stand, and because so many of 
the descendants of "Andrew jMoore" know nothing of 
them. 

The author is under many obligations to hundreds of 
kinsfolk and others for assistance rendered during these 
many years, and to them he returns his sincere thanks. 
The author feels, however, it is only justice to refer espec- 
ially to Sarah M. Fell, Wilmington, Del.; Mary ]M. Ross, 
Charlotte, N. C. ; Emma W. T^IcCoy, late of Tyrone, Pa.; 
Deborah McAlpine, late of Welland, Canada; John ]Moore, 
of Burgessville, Canada, and his friend Gilbert Cope, of 
West Chester, Pa. 

To those who have neglected or declined to give him 
information, the author can only say he is sorry they were 
not willing to assist him in making this work complete. 

The sketch of the author was written by his friend 
Martin G. Brumbaugh, Ph. D., of the University of Penn- 
sylvania, who has know^n him intimately for many years. 

To those who are inclined to criticise, the author de- 
sires to call attention to the fact that nearly all the time 
given to this work was that which is usually devoted to 
rest and recreation. Those who knovv^ him know he is a 
busy man. 

Appeiidix. — This work is intended to give in detail the 
history of (i) Andrew Moore, his ancestors and descend- 
ants; but for the benefit of other kinsfolk, I have given all 
the information I could obtain concerning the descendants 
of Andrew's brothers, and a sketch of the ancestors of Dr. 
James W. Tvloore, of Eastou, Pa. 

Addenda. — The information under this heading was 
obtained after the IMS. was in the printers' hands — no fault 
of the author that it had to be placed here. 

Errata. — These are errors, mainly in numbers, discov- 
ered after the different generations were printed.

INTRODUCTION. 



" Name ! If a party had a voicp, 
What mortal would be a Bugg by choice?" — IhK'd. 

N. I. Bowditch in "Suffolks Surnames" says: 

"Surnames are known to have been assumed, in some- 
instances, before the Xorman Conquest; but they did not 
become general in England until two or three centuries- 
later. Even.- name, no doubt, originally had a meaning, 
or was at first assumed or imposed from its real or sup- 
posed fitness, from some accidental circumstance, or from 
mere caprice. 

"Each individual is distinguished from his fellows only 
by his name. 

"Christian names being given in infancy, by friends and 
relatives, cannot as a general rule have bad significations, 
or be associated with crime and misfortune. What child 
was ever christened Judas or Dido? It is otherwise with 
surnames. These will be found to be of all shades from 
the best to the worst, the most pleasing to the most 
ridiculous. 

"They originated later in life, after the character and 
habits of the individual had been formed, and after he had 
engaged in some prominent occupation, trade or pursuit. 
They were given by the community in w^hich he dwelt, 
by enemies as well as friends. 

" Fortunes are amassed and dissipated; dynasties rise and- 
pass away, but one's name (slightly changed and marred,, 
it may be by time) is yet safely transferred from father to 
son — an inheritance from a remote and otherwise unknown, 
ancestry."

j^{{ INTRODUCTION. 

In Edmunds' " Names of Places '' we find the following: 
"Moor, More, jMors, E., from mor, a tract of wild land. 
Ex.; moor-by (line) the Danish abode of the :Moor; Sedge- 
moor (Somers) the Sedgey or rushy moor; Mor-ton, 9 
places; more-ton, 12 places; Mor-peth (cumb) moor path. 
The word More is sometimes a corruption of Mere, a pool. 
Ex.; Blake-more (Heref) anciently Black-mere, a black 
pool. ]Mores-ton (norf 1 the town of the pool." 

Clifford Stanley Sims, in his work "On the Origin and 
Significance of Scottish Surnames," says: 
"MOORE, Great, Tall." 



Robert Ferguson, in his work, "Teutonic Name Sys- 
tem, applied to Family Names of France, England and 
■Germany," says: 

"A stem which may perhaps come in here in 'More' or 
■*Moor,' respecting which Forstmann remarks: 'An uncer- 
tain stem., for which I scarcely dare venture to think of the 
old high German Mor, .Ethrops.' 

Now, if there were names derived from the Huns I do 
not quite see why not from the Moors, which name must 
have been familiar to most of the German people; at the 
same time it will, perhaps, be safer to take the most gen- 
eral sense of dark or svvarthy complexion, though 'I do not 
feel quite sure that it may not in some cases be a degener- 
ate form of IVIord (258 as we find in the Diplomata of Par- 
dessus, the person variously called Mora, and Morta.) 

On the whole, however, I feel inclined to bring in the 
stem here. 

SIMPLE FORMS, 

Old German.— :Mor, Moor. Dark: Maur, Mauri, Mor, 
More, Mora, Moor, 6th century. 

English. — More, Morey, ^Maury, Alorrow, Moore. 

Modern German. — Mohr. 

French. — Maur, Maurey, More, Moreau." 



Charles Waring Bardsiey, in his work on "Our English 
Surnames, their source, and their significations," says: 



INTRODUCTION. xiii 

"Of those compounds which have become surnames, we 
cannot possibly recite alL The simple ]V[ore or Moore is 
very familiar; Atte ^vlore or De La More being older 
forms. It has ever been the favorite name of punning 
rhymes. In the 'Book of Days,' several pieces of this 
kind have been preserved." 



In Lower's "A Dictionary of the Family Names of the 
United Kingdom," we find: 

"Moore, from residence at the boggy heath or moor. 
The mediaeval forms are Atte Mor, or Zvlore, De ]Mora, ad 
Moram, at, ate, atte, atten. The common prefix to early 
surnames, to designate the locality of the bearer's resi- 
dence, for example, at-more, a moor." 



Anderson "On Surnames," says: 

"The English names Mcor or JNIoore, and the Scottish 
Muir, are from the Saxon word, meaning heathy ground. 
The surname of Westmoreland, from the county of that 
name, means the western heathy land; and that of Black- 
more is from the place in Dorshetshire, meaning the black 
heath. 

Morland, or Moorland, taken from the district of York- 
shire, and Elmore, is from the parish Glouscestershire, the 
moor which abounds in eels." 



Moore was evidently the very common name of the 
nomenclature of Scotland, as there are over 39,300 persons 
holding that surname in Scotland. 

In Jamieson's " Scottish Dictionary" we find: 

"More, heath." 



In Lower's "Essays on English," Vol. I., Surnames, 
we find: 

' ' Moore, Morris. The former may be and probably is 
derived from topographical expression, as it occurs in the 
form of atmoor, amoore, etc., q. d. at the Moor. 



xiv INTRODUCTION. 

*' Homes of Family Names," H. B. GnfFy: 
" Moore. This name is distributed all over England, 
excludinof the south coast, v,-here with the exce-otion of 
Devon and Kent, it is absent or singularly uncommon. 
Its principal homes are in East Anglia, in Norfolk, Suffolk 
and Cambridgeshire, in the north, in Cheshire and York- 
shire, in the western midlands, in Worcester and adjacent 
counties, and in the southwest of England, in Devonshire." 



When Dr. Manners Sutton succeeded Dr. Moore in the 
Arch-Episcopal chair of Canterbury, the following lines 
were written: 

"What say you? The arch-bishop's dead ? 
A loss indeed ! Oh on his head 

May Heaven its blessings pour ! 
But if, with such a heart and mind, 
In Manners we his equal iind, 
Whv should we wish for More." 



When Sir Thomas Moore was Chancellor, it is said, his 
g^eat attention to his duties caused all litigation to come 
to an end in the Court of Chancery. The following epi- 
gram bearing upon this fact was written: 

" When Moore some years had Chancellor been, 
No More suits did remain; 
The same shall never More be seen, 
Till Moore be there asrain." 



The following is found in Besse's "Sufferings of the 
Friends," Vol. II., page 461, Ireland: 

"In 1656, John Moore, a soldier in the army, for speak- 
ing to him called 'Dean Worth,' in the graveyard, was 
put into a hog-sty. After trial at a court-martial it was 
decided that he had broken no just law." 

Page 6^^ same volume, 'Robert Moore and others were 
'haled' out of the Meeting and committed to prison four 
days, without any examination, and then turned out again, 
some of them being first stript of their clothing under pre- 
tence of i^es.''^ 



INTRODUCTION. xv 

Same volume, page 475, A. D. 1667, "Joha Moore, Chris- 
topher Peuiiock and others were taken from their meetings 
in the city of Cork and committed to prison by Chris- 
topher Rye, Mayor." 



In Besse's "Sufferings of the Friends," Vol. I., page 52, 
A. D. 1683: 

"Edward Moore and others were sent to jail for refusing 
to pay tithes." 

Same volume, page 66, A. D. 1682, "Elizabeth Moore, 
widow, of Bristol, and others, were sent to Newgate, in 
Bristol."

THE MOORES 

IN SCOTLAND AND IRELAND, 



After the most careful research, the author is satisfied 
that the Ancestry of Andrew Moore (i) emigrated from 
Scotland. 

Andrew's (i) grandfather, John Moore, resided near 
Glasgow, Scotland. Sixth Month, 1612, he emigrated 
from Scotland to Ireland, locating with his family in the 
County of Antrim. 

James L, who ascended the throne in 1603, being the 
representative of both royal families of Scotland and Eng- 
land, united the crowns. He was the successor of Eliza- 
beth, sometimes spoken of by her subjects as "Good 
Queen Bess." 

The Catholics and Non-conformists both had great hopes 
from James, but he at once avowed himself as an earnest 
Episcopalian. He soon began to execute the laws against 
the Non-conformists with more rigor than even Elizabeth 

had done. 

At the Convocation of Episcopal and Puritan Divines 
held in 1604, to discuss religious questions, King James 
became very angry at what he called the obstinacy of the 
Puritans, who failed to be convinced by his arguments. 
He sought to conform them by threat. "I will make 
them conform," said he, as the Convocation closed, "or I 
will harry them out of the land," 

The persecution that followed forced many of the Non- 
conformists to seek in other lands a safety and protection 
they could not have in their own. 

(I) 



2 THE MOORES IN SCOTLAND AND IRELAND. 

The ^Nloores in Scotland vrere sturd}', unyielding Non- 
conformists, who under no circumstances would yield 
either to the cajolery or threats of Kinj: James; hence 
their removal to Ireland in Sixth }*Ionth, i6i.^, nine years 
after the union of the Scottish and Eng:Iivh thrones by 
the accession of James I., and one year (,i6ii) after the 
translation of the Bible now mostly used by Protestants, 
called "King James's Version." 

It was seven years after the famous "Gunpowder Plot" 
was discovered, eight years before the "Pilgrim Fathers" 
located at Plymouth Rock (1620), twelve years before the 
birth of George Fox (1624), ^"^ thirty-six years before 
George Fox began his ministry in Manchester, England 
(1648). 

The Friends in Ireland, as elsewhere, were cruelly per- 
secuted until 1696, when by an Act of Parliament, P'riends 
were relieved of many of the penalties that had been pro- 
scribed against them by law. 

John Moore, the Emigrant from Scotland, may have 
had a number of children. The only one amongst them 
of whom we liave any accurate account, was a son James, 
who early joined the "Society of Friends." At his house 
in Ireland, Friends frequently held meetings. 

The author regrets exceedingly that he has thus far 
been unable to get the records of these meetings; they 
seem to have been mislaid or destroyed. 

The author has had considerable search made with 
reference to Andrew Moore and his ancestry in Great 
Britain and Ireland, but it has been rather barren of re- 
sults. He submits some letters and records to show from 
whom he has tried to get this information.

In reply to tliiiie of 2d 3Io. 16, 1S7S, thou art wrongly informed as to 
my having: possession of the records of Friends of Ireland, which are 
all kept there. 

I have those for Great Britain, or rather a Digest from them, of all

Births, Marriages and Burials, but not Ireland. I have, ho'wever, vrrit- 
tcn to Dublin for the iuformation asked, and the reply is — 

'" I have caret'uiiy searched the transcripts of all the northern meeting 
records which are here in Dublin, and can find no reference to Andrew 
Moore. There are some persons of the name of Moore, about 1700, but 
there is uo means of tracing the relationship, if any, to A. M., not hav- 
ing any particulars about him."

Friends' Meeting House, 
12 BisHOPGATE Street Without, 
London, E. C, 4th Mo., i6th, 1S7S. 
Respected friend, 

John A. M. Passmore : 

I duly received thine of the 3d Mo. iSth, and shortly after, a dollar 
through the Post Office. 

I have, as uished, written again to Dublin and search has been care- 
fully made in all their books for the information, but without success in 
finding the Andrew iloore reqiiired. Enclosed is all the information 
that can be found, for Vy-hich I have paid 10 s. Sterling. It is not im- 
probable that some of the births or marriages may have occurred before 
the parties became Friends. 

I annex also Extracts from the Scotch books, which seem to supplv 
some of the information required, and the two together may perhaps 
help somewhat in thy researches, but there are often links wanting 
which we cannot supply, some having been Friends and some not, and 
in a few cases the early books having been quite lost beyond all hope of 
recovery. 

The Society's records only commence about 1650, and icr some dis- 
tricts later than that. I am sorry we cannot find all thou wants, not- 
withstanding all the search made, which has been considerable, and 
occupied much time. 

Thou mayest send me 3 or 4 dollars more for same, including the ten 
shillings I am out of pocket for the Irish ones. 

Thine truly, Chas. Hoyland.

My dear friend ; 

Joseph Radley and I have made search of all the early books of Antrim 
and Lisbum and can find no such name as Moore. See by a letter from 
J. B. Beale that inquiry was made before. We have dates 1721 Lisbum 
and about 1723 in Antrim.

ANDREW MOORE 

AND HIS DESCEiNDAiNTS 



jFitst (&fnerat(oiu 

1. Andrew Moore, son of James and grandson of John 
Moore, who emigrated to Ireland from near Glasgow, 
Scotland, 6tli ^lo., 1612, was born 6tli 3,[o. — 16S8, in 
County Antrim, Ireland. Married in 1715 to Margaret, 
daughtei of Guyon and I\Iargaret (Henderson) iMiller. * 

I have been unable to find date of Margaret jSIoore's 
death. It is more than probable that she died before An- 
drew (i) left Ireland. " Tradition has it she died on the 
passage to America, but I can find no authority for that. 
She was living in 1722, for her son Thomas was born in 
that year. If she were living when Andrew left Ireland, 
it is most like'.}- her name would have appeared on the 
certificate from Ballynacree Monthly Meeting, 

Andrew determined in 1723 to emigrate to America. 
He landed at New Castle, Del., 8-3-1723. "At a IMonthly 
Meeting held at New Garden, Chester Co., Pa., 6-8-1724, 
Andrew ]\Ioore produced to this Meeting a certificate from 
a Meeting held at Ballanacree in the County of Antrim in 
the north of Ireland. " (See New Garden Monthly Meeting 
Records.) Andrew was married a second time, 4-24-1725 
to Rachel, daughter of William Holliday. He settled on a 
tract of land on both sides of the Octoraro Creek, now 

* There has been some discussion as to whether Andrew Moore (i) 
tn;irried MpTearet ililler : but the weight of proof is in favor of it. 
Oiiyon llill,.'r and his wife left Co. .\rmagh, Ireland, in 1702, settled in 
Keuuett Twp , Che.--.er Co., Pa.

partly in Sadsbury, Chester Co., and partly in Sadsbury, 
Lane. Co., Pa. He erected a Tub i\[ill near the present 
town of Atgien, Chester Co., Pa., the ruins of which can 
still be seen. Henry Ivloore (371) resides on a part of the 
old tract which has been in the family since 1736. There 
has never been a vendue or a mortgage upon it, or a judg- 
ment against it. Andrew was engaged in milling and 
farming, took a \'ery active part in the business and other 
Meetings of the Society of Friends, was largely instru- 
mental in establishing Sadsbury Friends' Meeting and in 
erecting the first Meeting House there. In 1724, Andrew 
Moore (i) and Samuel Miller on behalf of themselves and 
Friends settled about Sadsbury, asked for liberty to build 
a Meeting House, which being granted by the ^vieeting, 
built one in 1725. 

Andrew Moore had considerable literary talent, wrote 
both prose and poetry. I regret the following is the only 
emanation I have from his pen. It is given just as writ- 
ten by him: 

"These I wrote to a Friend's daughter, a little girl -Aho I was told was 
fond of Meter and wished to have some of Andrew Moore's makin;^, 
although she was a stranger to me. 

" The reason why those lines I pen, 
Was love to thee my little friend, 
As I am now a man in years. 
That has partook of joys and fears. 
I find that in the bloom of youth 
We ought to love and seek the truth, 
And not like some put away 
Far out of sight the evil day, 
Saying it's time enough for me 
I wish more pleasures for to see, 
But don't consider how that death, 
IMay in a moment stop their breath 
And to this wourld m.ust bid adieu, 
Then fearful judgment must insue 
Or if the sentance t'nen be past, 
Into the lake let them be cast. 
That doth with flaming sulpher flow- 
Forever to remaiu.iu woe. 
Therefore my dear let us prepare, 

While time to us is given ; 
And strive for to obtain a share, 
With the blest saints in Heaven.

-of his father's estate were written by James ^Ioore (2), as

yt we luid best Comply with the Payment of the ]\Ioney 
Agreeable to the old award & Sighned by a Friend which 
advice we Complyed with uutill John Got uneasy Again 
and would have his Mother's Part as well as the Real 
Estate overhailed; & got a Power of Attorney from her 
on that Acct. 

Year 84, nth Mo, 26th, Brother John Came to my 
house and told me he was Come to make a Proposal to 
Settle the Estate & at his Request I got 'My 4 sons to hear 
it, and he told me he v/as willing to have the >\Iatter 
Reconsidered and settled ageeable to the will, as the Law 
Directs and seemed very earnest for a re-settlement and 
after Some More Conversation we left it under Considera- 
tion. 

Shortly after He Came again To My House w^th. brother 
Andrew S: Still insisted for a Resettlement but Desired yt 
his Mother's Part might be resettled also which Both 
brother Andrew and I Disalowed of, but I Queried with 
him If we would allow^ of it whether he w^^uld m^ake up 
her Defeciencys, If she fell short he s'd he would and 
should Bind his Estate for it, however we were Not willing 
and So Parted. (Soon after he came again the Third Time 
and brother Andrew Also and Still he insisted for a settle- 
ment but was not willing then to Make up an difficiencys 
If his Mother should fall Short as he s'd. He had con- 
sulted his Father-in-law who advised him Not to bind 
himself and v/ould settle on no other Terms than to have 
his Mother's Part overhall'd wth the Real Estate} With 
which brother Andrew and I at last Condesended, and 
wath the Company and advice of a Number of Friends on 
the 31st of 8th Mo, 17S5 We Entered into agreement, to 
leave the Settlement To arbitrations and each of us choose 
three men and bound ourselves to stand and abide by their 
Judgement So that it was ]Made a Rule of Court & all 
Former obligations To be Made void on Eotli sides & of

Referring to their first acquaintance, and subsequent 
married life, the author quotes the testimony of James, as 
written by himself. 

"When I was in the 24th year of my age, I h.ad some 
thoughts (if it was the Lord's will) to alter my condition 
into a married state, and having heard of Ann Starr, 
daughter of Jeremiah and Rebecca Starr, I went to see 
her. I stayed but a short time, yet, observing her modest, 
innocent deportment, my affections seemed, in some de- 
cree, drawn towards her. After my return home, the 



among others att the solemnizing of their said marriage and subscription 
in manner aforesaid, as witnesses hereunto have also to these presents 
subscribed our names the day and year above written.

tliougbts of entering into a married state, were brought 
deeplv under my consideration, having seen and heard of 
so mauv miscarriages by people being rashly and incon- 
siderately joir.ed together. The thoughts of their unbe- 
coming manner of living, bowed my mind with awful 
desires to the Lord, that if it was consistent with his will, 
that I should alter nu' condition, he might be pleased to 
provide me a suitable companion. As I spread my cause 
before him uuder a deep exercise, so I was willing to wait 
his time. The consideration of such a weighty under- 
taking, which I apprehended was one of the greatest in 
this life, often engaged my desires to know the Divine 
will, whether to proceed any further on that account or 
not. So after about three months remaining at hom.e, 
he was pleased to open my way, and I found a freedom to 
acquaint her with my proposals. And from that time 
forth we proceeded in an orderly manner, until we were 
joined together in marriage. 

''Ever blessed be the name of the Most High, who was 
pleased to hear my petitions, and to answer my request in 
this matter far be_\ond my expectation, or what I could 
ask for. She has since told me, that it was much after 
the same manner with her, that she had desired she might 
never alter her Condition, unless it was the Lord's will to 
provide a suitable helpmeet. And I have a full assurance 
that the Lord will hear the petitions of those that truly 
look unto liim for counsel, and whether they be joined in 
that weigh. ty affair of marriage or not, he will be their 
director. As my dear wife and I catne together in love, 
so we remained and lived in love until the day of her 
death, which was upwards of twenty years, and the Al- 
mighty blessed our endeavors both spiritually and tem- 
porally. She was a dutiful and loving v/ife, tenderly 
sym.pathizing with me in times of prol}ation, aliiiction, or 
distress, cither inv.-ardly or outwardly, often giving me a 
word of comfort in the i-:eedful time. To her offspring, 
she was a ter.der hearted mother, and their eternal happi- 
ness was often her request. She loved all, would do good 
to all, and her charity abounded to all, but in a particular 



SECOND GENERATION. 25 

manner to the household of faith. Her affections seemed 
to be bound in love, and nearly united to her friends. 

"She was very serviceable in the neighborhood, not 
thinking hard at any time, if health permitted, to go to any 
who were in distress, if she could be of any service, and 
her endeavours under Providence, often proved successful, 
for she often made use of many things, which v.-ere help- 
ful to the relief of her fellow-creatures. When at home, 
she was very industrious, and careful about her lawful 
business, both of her own and of my concerns, that noth- 
ing might go to loss. She was a diligent attender of 
meetings, both on first and other days of the week, as also 
monthly. Quarterly, and Yearly IMeetings, when she was 
of ability; being of a deep, weighty, and grave deportment 
when there, and often, in reverent fear, concerned in pub- 
lic for the v.-elfare and prosperity, of the Church and peo- 
ple of God. She was also active in the discipline, having 
a godly care tliat nothing might be wanting, through her 
neglect, in order for the cleansing of the Church and pro- 
moting the Glorv of God. Slie was likewise a lover of 
the unity of the brethren in the bond of peace. 

" Towards her latter end she Vv'ould often give me hints, 
that she tliought her time here would not be long, but as 
she saw it so nearly affected me, she seldom said much; 
yet it vv-as, in some measure, a weaning time to me. For 
some months, she appeared to ha^•e had a clear sight of 
her dissolution being at hand, by her making all necessary 
provisions, and giving directions to her sister what should 
be done; as likewise by a writing under her own hand, b\' 
way of a will, of which she informed me, about two or 
three days before her last illness, and that she tliought she 
could not get over it, but said she was resigned to the will 
of God, whether life or death. She continued satisfied 
and cheerful, until she was taken ill on fifth day afternoon, 
the 6th of the Sth month 1761. She remained in a weak, 
low condition, until third day evening following, when 
the fever seemed to affect her head, so that she became 
somewhat delirious; yet, through the mercy of God, I do 
not remember chat any unbecoming expressions dropped 



26 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



from her lips; but the tenor of her discourse, even when 
her natural understanding was thus somewhat impaired, j 

was in a great degree tending towards b.er future happi- ? 

ness, and the salvation of mankind generallv. A short *; 

time after she seemed to get some ease, and fell into a 
sleep, till near three o'clock, when she quietly departed 
without sigh or groan; and I have no doubt she has entered 
into endless joy and peace with God, 'where the wicked 
cease from troubling, and the weary be at rest.' 'Blessed 
are the dead which die in the Lord, from henceforth; vea, 
saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labours, and 
their works do follow them.' 1 

"She departed this life the 12th of the Sth month 1761, I 

and was buried on the evening of the day following, in 1 

Friends' burying ground at Sadsbury, aged forty three j 

years and a half. | 

"I have particularly mentioned the manner of our com- } 

ing together, principally, that if this account should fall | 

into the hands of any that are, or may be about to engage | 

in that weighty affair of marriage, they may not rashly, ' 

or inconsiderately join together: but when anything of 
that nature is in view, that they may maturely and weight- 
ily consider it, and lay it before the Almighty, while it is 
yet in the bud. And to such, whether male or female, I 
may say, let not thy affections be drawn away, until thou 
hast the mind of Truth uniting with thee in thy proceed- ; 

ings. As thou art careful thus to put thy Confidence and ! 

trust in God, T am persuaded he will open thy way, and 
enlighten thy understanding, to see whether thy under- 
taking is agreeable to his will or not, then it will be more 
easy to nip the bud, than to break off a strong branch. 
But if the Almighty approves of thy undertaking, and 
thou art sensible in thy mind, that it is consistent with 
his will for thee to proceed, then, in the next place, see 
that thou hast consent of parents or guardiaiis; and if it 
is the Lord's will to join you together, the consent of 
godly parents or guardians, will be readily granted, which 
may be to you a great comfort in times of exercises, or 
trials that mav afterwards attend von. \ 



SECOND GENERATION. 27 

*'In the next place, take care that thou proceeds orderly 
in the fear and counsel of God, in the accomplishment of 
thy undertaking, agreeable to the good rules and order of 
the Church; that so thy marriage may not be in or by the 
will of man only, but of the Lord that hath joined you 
together. So may your last days be your most comforta- 
ble and best days; that, when you are summoned home, 
being clothed with the robes of righteousness, your souls 
may ever live to praise the Lord God and the Lamb, ever 
all blessed for ever and ever more. So be it saith the soul 
of one who wisheth for the salvation of mankind uni- 
versally. 

*'8th mo. 24th 1 76 1." 

James further adds: 

"The following letter was sent me by my loving wife, 
when I was on a religious visit to Friends, in Virginia and 
Maryland, to wit: 

"My Dear Heart, In the bowels of unfeigned love and 
tender affection, I at this time salute thee, and hereby 
give thee to understand, that, through Divine Providence, 
I have hitherto been preserved in health beyond expecta- 
tion, and likewise our Children have had their health; for 
wdiich I have reason to be humbly thankful to Almighty 
God. Therefore, my dear husband, I hope these may find 
thee in the same condition; but, my dear, through Divine 
Assistance, I have resigned thee up as much as possible; 
so I hope the Lord, who is ever merciful to his obedient 
children, will keep thee near to himself, and preserve thee 
in every needful time; for we have an unwearied adversary 
to war with. Hoping this may be satisfactory to thee to 
liear of my welfare, I conclude, and remain as I have 
reason to be, thy affectionate wife, 

"Sadsbury, 2d of 5th mo. 1758." 



28 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

The following- beantiful exliortatioii to her children is 
taken from the latter part of her last will: 

" My dear Cln'ldren, fear the Lord, and love your ten- 
der father: be willinji^ always to take his counsel, and, to 
honour him in his old age, that the blessing of honouring 
a father and a mother may be your portion, and that you 
may live long in the land." 

James m. 2nd time in 1765 to IMary, -widow of 

Thomas Atkinson, of Bucks Co., Pa., and dau. of Joseph 
and Sarah Wiidman. I^.Iary d. 7-13-1766, interred in 
F. B. G. at Sadsbury, Lane. Co., Pa. 

Speaking of this marriage, James says: 

"This I may say, that the way of our first acquaintance, 
and coming together, was to me, remarkable; and I verily 
believe, as I have often thought, that it was the Lord's 
doings, and marvellous in my eyes. And since kind Prov- 
idence hath been pleased to favour me with such an help- 
meet, in gratitude for the favour, and for the tender affec- 
tion she manifested to me and mine, I can do no less than 
leave a brief account of her virtuous qualifications, with 
which the Lord in mercy was pleased to adorn her. 

"It is said, 'the righteous are taken away, and no man 
layeth it to lieart,' yet they 'shall be had in everlasting 
remembrance,' with him, before whom we m.ust all ap- 
pear. Of my dear wife, I may truly say, her tender Care 
over me and mine liath been great. 

"Her solid deportment and exemplary Conduct, both at 
home and abroad, were edifying; her words being few and 
Savoury, sea.soned with the salt of the kingdom. She 
was of a cheerful, sweet disposition, although her Counte- 
nance was grave and solid. 

"Pier moderation appeared in all things, both in respect 
to eating, drinking, apparel and whatsoever else she was 
concerned in. Being largely favoured with the ornament 
of a meek and quiet spirit, she was well esteemed b\' most, 
if not all, who were acqtiainted with her. Her mind was 
not easily moved, either with prosperity or adversity. In 
regard to a livelihood here, s!ie was industrious, when of 



SECOND GENERATION. 29 

ability, not spending- her time in idleness; but more es- 
pecially was slie diligent to gain an inheritance hereafter. 
And the Lord in his infinite mercy was pleased to commit 
to her charge, a gift in tlie ministry, which, I often thought 
she kept too much from shining, so as to give light to the 
whole house, and family of God's church and people. 
But, she was deeply concerned and dwelt under a reverent 
fear (as she often told me) lest she should be too forward, 
but when she gave up to the requirings of the holy witness 
of Truth, she generally spoke as one liaving authority, 
and like the good, house-holder, brought forth out of the 
treasury, things new and old. I verily believe her secret 
travail and labors of love both at home and abroad will be 
to some like bread cast upon the waters that will return 
again after many days. 

"I may safely say, she had the true marks and qualifica- 
tions of a minister, for she was in a great degree, blame- 
less, sober, and of good behaviour; no striker for the 
greatest fault, but generally bore it with patience and 
meekness. She was not greedy of Slthy lucre (as she 
termed it) in comparison of that eternal weight of glory, 
or heavenly treasure. She v;as no brawler, nor lifted up 
with pride, but one that ruled well her own house, having 
her children and household under subjection with gravity. 
Her prudent conduct and wholesome advice, seasonabh/ 
given, often kept her children both in subjection and fear; 
for she abhorred deceit and hypocrisy, and with a double- 
tongue, she had no unity. 

"She was a diligent attender of meetings, both for wor- 
ship and discipline, at home and abroad, when of ability, 
being remarkable for humble waiting therein. 

"The evening before her departure, being first day, there 
came many friends to see her, and she, earnestly beholding 
them, requested that they might sit dov;n together, and 
wait in God's fear, in true silence. After a season of wait- 
ing and holy awe, notwithstanding she had been scarcely 
able to speak above a breath, but being divinely favored at 
that time, her tongue was loosed, so as to leave her last 
testimony and dvinsf words after this manner: 'Friends 



30 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

if you love God, he will love you, but if you do not love 
God, how can you expect to be loved of Him. If you 
would gather your families more frequently, and sit down 
in his fear, drawing your minds from this world to wait 
in true silence, then you would grow in the Truth.' 

"She said more to the same effect, in a tender, awful 
manner, desiring that they might remember her words; 
which I believe made a deep impression on many minds. 

"After this seasonable and edifying time, she desired 
friends might withdraw, for she found she was growing 
weaker and thought her dissolution was near; yet lay in a 
quiet, composed frame of mind, being resigned to the will 
of God, and not afraid to die; the terrors of death (as she 
often said) being taken away; she also said she found 
nothing as a hindrance to obstruct her entrance into the 
glorious kingdom of rest and peace. 

" She had often requested that Imight freely give her up, 
and not mourn for her, saying I had but a few days to stay 
.behind her, and encouraged me to faithfulness. She like- 
wise desired friends might be still and quiet, until her de- 
parture, being sensible to the last moment; and thus quietly 
finished her course, and ended her day's work in the day- 
time. 

"Let me never forget the hand that brought us together, 
and the favour that Heaven bestowed upon me, and let me 
leave these few lines in remembrance of thee, that thou 
wast dear to me in this life. Let me now condole my 
present situation, for thou art gone; O! thou hast paid the 
debt of nature; thou that I much preferred before myself 
in piety and virtue; thou that wast my help and comfort, 
my counselor and near friend, thou that wast often con- 
cerned for my everlasting peace, and wast my chief delight 
in this world, my bosom friend, and one that I preferred 
before all transitory enjoyments whatever. For I may 
truly say that her chief Concern seemed to be, to meditate 
on the law of the Lord, day and night; and although she 
was taken away as in the prime of her days, yet she seemed 
like a shock of corn, cut down in its season, or like fruit 
fully ripe for the kingdom. And I have good reason to 



SECOND GENERATION. 31 

believe that she has entered into full fruition of eternal 
joy and felicity; into the holy City of the New Jerusalem 
whose builder and maker is God, there to praise, worship, 
and adore him forever, and there let her rest, saith my 
soul. Amen." 

James m. a 3d time, 5-4-1769, to Ann, widow of Nich- 
olas Newlin, of Concord, Chester (now Delaware) Co., Pa. 
Prior to her marriage with Nicholas Newlin, she was the 
widow of James Walter and dau. of Caleb and Hannah 
(Bennet) Jackson. Ann d. TO-19-17S9, in the 70th year 
of her age; interred in F. B. G., at Old Sadsbury, Lane. 
Co., Pa. James pays this tribute to her memory: 

"She was a plain, \-irtuous, religious and sober woman, 
hating pride and superfluity, and not greedy of filthy lucre. 
She loved the Truth and the friends of it, and was a dili- 
gent attender of our meetings when health permitted." 

James m. a 4th time to Ann, widow of James Williams, 
of Sadsbury Twp., Chester Co., Pa., and dau. of John and 
Hannah (Saunders) ]Minshal. Ann d. 9-21-iSor, in the 
73d year of her age. Interred in F. B. G. at Old Sadsbury. 
In concluding his testimony, concerning his last wife, he 
says : 

"I believe she endeavoured to live at peace with God, and 
with all men. She loved plainness, and had a testimony 
against superfluities, pride, and high-mindedness. In a 
few words, she was a religious, virtuous woman, and a 
tender companion to me, in my advanced age." 

James was a very remarkable man, considering the op- 
portunities of advancement in those early days, especially 
when we remember his occupation, that of a miller, which 
he followed diligently, and which prevented him from 
having the hours of leisure and reflection, that less exact- 
ing and laborious avocations would have aff"orded. He was 
considered a most excellent business man. He was care-

satisfied the other members of the family were, with the 
manner in which he executed his trust. He was a re- 
markable man physically, and it is related of him, that 
he could carry 9 bushels of corn at one time up the mill 
steps into the mill; also that he could take a 56 ft. weight 
on each little finger, and tip them together, at the back of 
his head. He was a friend of the down- trodden and the 
poor, as is evidenced by the fact, that in his will, he be- 
queathed a considerable sum of money, in care of the 
Society of Friends for the education of the children of 
those members of the Society who were unable to give 
their children such an education as they desired; but if 
not required in the Societ}', for the purpose intended, it 
should be appropriated to educate those not in member- 
ship, irrespective of co/or. This money remains as a 
School fund in the hands of the Society. He contributed 
freely toward the erection of the present F. M. H. at Sads- 
bury. Lane. Co., Pa., about the year 1760. Although a 
man exacting in his requirements for the performance of 
every duty, he was withal exceedingly fond of innocent 
sports and amusements, and his rich vein of Irish humor, 
he has, in a great degree, transmitted to many of the de- 
scendants in the present generation. He was a man of 
great piety, and appears to have been greatly concerned 
for the promotion of righteousness and truth, as well by ': 

the use of his pen as by his public labours in the Society. ! 

In the spring of 1751, James being engaged on a Com- ^• 

mittee with other Friends in visiting families, "his mouth 
was first opened in public, for the cause and honor of God 
and his Truth." ^ 

While engaged in writing on the subject of war, he says 
there was a proclamation issued by the Governor of Penn- 
sylvania, for a general fast to be observed by all societies, 
which deeply affected his mind; and, letting drop the con- 
cern he v/as engaged in, he collected a large number of 
paragraphs out of the writings of the prophets and other 
parts ot the Scriptures concerning fasts, circumcision, 
offerings, and set days — to which he briefly added some of

his own sentiments on those subjects. Th.e closing para- 
graph of this essay may be considered an epitome or sum- 
mary of the whole, being as follows: 

"This is our faith, that the outward ordinances and cer- 
emonial performances of the law, are ceased, and that the 
spiritual performance of them ought to be observed in each 
of our hearts and souls, now in this gospel day." 

"Therefore, let all professing Christianity, be awakened, 
and consider whether their faith be in Christ, yea or nay, 
and whether they prefer the new Jerusalem above their 
chiefest joy, and Sion's prosperity before any worldly de- 
light. As we thus come individually to have our sincere 
desires and breathings to God, for the promotion of his 
glory, we shall be as bright lights in the world, and as a 
lamp that burneth whicli can not be extinguished. That 
the brightness and glory of this most excellent gospel day 
may, more and more, break forth, and the comeliness and 
beauty thereof appear, and shine forth among the children 
of men universally, is the sincere desire and breathings of 
one who wisheth the salvation of every soul. 

"JAMES MOORE." 

It appears that he traveled in the service of Truth, as a 
minister, but how extensively the author is not informed, 
as he has seen or lieard of no Journal of his life and travels, 
nor any memorial or testimony concerning him; but the 
following memorandum shows the continued concern of 
his mind to be usefully employed in doing good: 

"In the w'inter season of the year 1770, I being weakly 
in body, and not of ability for exercise as formerly; also, 
being mostly confined in my chamber, and the time seem- 
ing tedious, I betook myself to reading, and carefully read 
over the Old and New Testaments. Having my pen in a 
trembling hand, I took out some particular passages 
through the whole for my own comfort and satisfaction, 
and to have both mind and body employed in some agree- 
able exercise. At times, I made some small additions and 
remarks, on the prophecies of Ezekiel and Joel, which I 
thought seemed to point out, in some degree, the sorrow-

fill distressed state of North Aijierica, with ^lamentation 
for Pennsylvania in particular, and likewise some advice 
to my beloved children.'' 

The Scripture quotations or selections, occupy more than 
five slieets of paper, closely written. 

SOME ADVICE TO MY DEAR AND AFFECTIOIn ATR 
CHILDREN. 

"I feel a concern to rest upon my mind for you, m.y dearly 
beloved children, to put yon in remembrance, and encour- 
age you in your spiritual travel Sion-ward. 

"You know it hath been my lot, for some years past, to 
tread in the path of affliction and bodily weakness, yet I 
have this testimony to bear for the honour of Israel's 
King; — that in all the several stages and dispensations of 
my life, I never had such clear ideas and bright discoveries 
of the joys of heaven, and of that never fading crown of 
glory which is laid up for the righteous, as at such times, 
when uuder affliction and bodily-weakness; so that I have 
remembered the saying of the psalmist, 'Before I was 
afflicted I went astray;' and also of the inspired apostle, 
that 'All things work together for good to tliem that love 
•God.' And I do believe it has been through mercy, that 
I have been visited with afHiction, in order to draw my 
mind from the too anxious pursuit of the perishing things 
•of this world. 

"And now my dear children, according to the course of 
nature, in all probability I must leave you shortly; there- 
fore my earnest desire and prayer to Almighty God is for 
you, and in tender love, I warn, exhort, and caution vou, 
to keep your eye single to the Lord; and, above all things, 
•endeavor to promote the exaltation of his ever-blessed 
Truth upon the earth, in your day, age, and generation. 
Be as valiant soldiers for his great cause, and turn not 
your backs in times of trial, for the Lord will be your 
leader. 

"I have often thought it is through the goodness of 
heaven that these outward temporal losses and crosses do 
come upon us, in order to draw our minds and affections

from these lower enjoyments, and place them upon things 
divine, and of a more sublime nature. 

'*In bowels of love, as a tender parent, my mind is con- 
cerned for you earnestly desiring that you may give up 
your names, and have them recorded in the book of life. 
Be willing to be searched to the very bottom of the wound 
by the word of God's eternal fire, for it will destroy noth- 
ing but what is corrupt and of a poisonous nature to the 
spiritual life. It will only destroy the dross and the super- 
fluous part; therefore give up all as a free-will Offering, 
that is contrary to his holy will; that is for the fire, let it 
be consumed by the fire; and that that is for the sword, let 
it be slain by the sword of his mouth; and that that is for 
the famine, let it be famished, that God over all may be 
glorified in and by you. Thus, nothing will remain but 
that which is pure, and without mixture, and which will 
stand you in stead at that awful moment, when all the 
enjoyments of this perishing world will be but as dross. 

"As you come to enjoy this quiet habitation in the Truth, 
Oh! how will you shine in this dark and gloomy age, like 
stars in the firmament of God's power! My heart rejoices 
to think there is a remnant that are bowed in their spirits, 
willing to put their shoulders to the work, and to stand as 

pillars in our Sion, and that vou mav be of that number 

• 'i i,^ fc iT* *" Q A 

IS what I greatly desire. XoOOOoL? 

"I seem like a vessel wanting vent, while I unbosom my- 
self to you, in giving you a hint of what presseth upon 
my spirit; my eyes are ready to run down with water, and 
my poor trembling hand can scarcely write what comes in 
my heart, in order to set forth the tender love and regard 
that I feel towards you in relation to your everlasting wel- 
fare, with desires, that when our concluding moments shall 
come, and we must bid adieu to all things here below, we 
may meet again in that glorious habitation, where he that 
can not lie, hath promised by the mouth of his prophet, to 
give "beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the 
garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;" where the 
wicked will cease from trouLlinsf, and the wearv will be 
at rest; all tears of sorrow will be wiped from our eyes,

and nothing Vv'ill remain but joy and gladness, and that 
forevermore. — This is the lot of the righteous through all 
ages and generations of the world. Amen. 

"Therefore my dearly beloved children, whatever you do, 
whether you eat or drink, marry or are given in marriage; 
whether you may be about your lawful callings, and in an 
especial manner, when you are gathered in }our religious 
assemblies to perform divine worship — let all be done in the 
fear of God and to the honour of his glorious name. Then 
will your words be few and savoury, accompanied with a 
stead V decorum in your families; your actions and deport- 
ment being as way-marks to your offspring through your 
pilgrimage in this troublesome world. 

"This will be the way to surmount the present afflictions 
and trials which m.ay be permitted to come upon you, 
whether inwardly or outwardly, for the trial of your faith ; — 
ever looking as through a prospective glass, to that joy un- 
speakable and never fading crown of glory in the end and 
conclusion of your days. That this may be your happy 
lot, and that your last days may be your best days, is my 
earnest desire and prayer for you." 

— This long and useful life came to a close, 8-1-1809, 
having attained the ripe age of 93 years, 2 months and 14 
days. His remains were interred in the F. B. G. at Old 
Sadsbury, Lane. Co., Pa.

Item. I order and direct that my Executors do pay out 
of my personal estate into the hands of John Truman 
and Robert ]\Ioore the sum of 100 £.^ to be put out by 
them in interest with sufficient security for the same 
and to remain under that circumstance as a fund, and 
the interest arising therefrom to be applied to the school 
education of Friends' children who may be in low circum- 
stances at the discretion of the trustees in conjunction with 
the Committee of Sadsbury preparative meeting or any 
poor without distinction as to color or religious profession 
within the limits of said meeting; and if there do not ap- 
pear any immediate use for said interest, that it may be 
added to the principal until it doubles itself and after that, 
if no necessity appears as aforesaid, I allow such interest 
to be applied to any charitable use within the limits of the 
monthly meeting of Sadsbury or of the Quarterly I\Ieeting 
of Cain — except necessity do not appear, then that the 
interest be applied to the assistance of families that may 
be in low circumstances, always looking upon Sadsbury 
preparative meeting to have the prior right, and at the 
decease of John Truman and Robert jNIoore that the said 
monthly meeting at Sadsbury appoint suitable friends to 
have the care of said fund. 

And further, as there was something of a religious con- 
cern took hold of my mind in my younger years I thought 
it my place to leave in manuscript for the promotion, as I 
apprehended, of truth and the peaceable Christian Testi- 
mony that we as a people hold forth to the world, there-

fore I have left three small books on sundry heads and 
occasions as it opened in my view, with an account of 
several little visits at several times and places and sundry 
copies of letters on different occasions, and after inspec- 
tion of friends they apprehend it may be of use to society 
by publishing- them with such abridgments or alterations 
as they may think proper, then I order that my Executors 
pay out of my personal estate the sum of $70 for printing 
and binding the worth thereof in books to be disposed in 
manner following — 

4 to the children of my deceased son Andrew ^loore. 

4 to each of my other children.

Grove, Sadsbury, York, Warrington, Newberry, ^Menallen, 
Pipe Creek, Goose Creek, Fairfax, Hopewell and Pelham 
in Upper Canada — if any books remain to be distributed 
at discretion of my Executors. 

Likewise my will is that no interest on any of my bonds 
for the space of three months after my decease be col- 
lected — as a small legacy to my debtors. And also that 
my Executors give sufficient reasonable time lor the pay- 
ment of those bonds, as it is not my desire to distress any. 
And when bonds are paid, my Executors to pay off all 
legacies and donations as before mentioned, and if any 
money should come in shortly, to be put to use of my 
children till the settlement of my estate. 

I appoint my son John Moore and my son-in-law Asahel 
Walker Executors.

Rebecca b. 4-23-1737. Andrew had learned the trade of 
a miller, but after marriage, settled on a farm inherited 
from his father, in Sadsbury, Lane. Co., where he resided 
until the spring of 1801. L'nable, on account of the high 
price for land, to secure comfortable homes for all of his 
children, several of whom had gone as far west as Half 
Moon Valley, Centre Co., Pa., and purchased homes there, 
he concluded, with his wife and younger children, to tollow 
them. Having settled his business affairs and disposed of 
his property, he started for his new home with two four- 
horse wagons laden with household goods, and two cows 
tied behind them. They journeyed to Harrisburg, Pa., 
intending to remain that night. Upon entering the (then) 
village, Andrew, standing on the front of one of the wagons, 
exclaimed, '''I have come here to lay my bofiesf'' During 
the night he was taken seriously ill, and after about nine 
days' sickness, he died 5- -iSoi. His remains were 
taken to Middletown, Dauphin Co., for interment in the

THIRD GENERATION. 49 

Andrew in. a second time, i-r-1799, to Sarah, widow 
of James Worstall and dau. of Arnold and ^largery Warner, 
of Blockley Twp., Pliila. Co., Pa. Andrew resided near 
the site of the present town of Christiana, Lane. Co., Pa., 
upon property now (1S97) owned by Joseph D. C. Pownall. 
In addition to farming extensively for those early days, he 
entered into the iron business, at Doe Rnn Forge, with 
his son-in-law, Ellis Passmore, Andrew furnishing- stock 
and cash to the amount of ^244, 13s. 3><d. The name 
of the firm was Moore & Passmore. 6-1 8-1 793, they 
bought land of Robert Barnes on Doe Run in Chester 
County, and erected upon it a new forge, Andrew again 
furnishing ^94, 17s. 6d. 

They ran both the forges at the same time and did a 
large business, acquiring considerable wealth. The part- 
nership seems to have been dissolved 1-6-1797, by the 
withdrawal of Andrew Moore. 

Andrew Vs-as a man of considerable ability as a writer 
of both prose and poetry, and it is a matter of regret that 
none of his productions could be found to insert in this 
volume. He was an active member of the Society of 
Friends, and zealous in doing works of charity. He was 
very fond of innocent amusements, and rather disposed to 
playing practical jokes, a trait inherited by some of his 
descendants. It is related of him that on one occasion he 
missed hay from one of his stacks, v/hicli had evidently 
been stolen, but no idea could be formed as to the thief. 
He, however, concluded to watch for him one bright moon- 
light night. Presently a man came, took a considerable 
quantity of hay from one stack, tied it up in a bundle, and 
started oflf with it. Andrew, who had been an interested 
spectator from behind another stack, slipped up behind 
him, set the hay on fire, and retreated to his hiding place 
to watch the result. The hay was soon in a blaze, and the 
thief, with an unearthly scream, dropped the blazing load 
and ran as for his life. The next morning one of Andrew's 

daughters told him that John wanted to see him in 

the ofiace; her father told her to say to him that he could 
not go to the oiiice until after breakfast, and that he should

come into the room. After some hesitancy, John came in. 
"Ruthie," said Andrew to his wife, "put on a plate for 
John." John protested, but Andrew insisting, he came to 
the table, trying doubtless to eat a breakfast which had no 
relish for him. After breakfast they retired to the office, 
where John with tears told Andrew how wicked he had 
been, that he had been in the habit of stealing hay from 
his stacks, and that on the previous evening while carry- 
ing away a bundle of hay, although the weather was cool 
and clear, a thunderbolt from Heaven had struck it and 
set it on fire. He begged piteously for forgiveness, which 
Andrew readily granted, impressing upon him the im- 
portance of honesty, saying, "the next time the bolt may 
hit thee, John." After John's death Andrew told the 
story, adding that John was never afterward known to do 
a dishonest act. 

Andrew died in 1S05, interred in F. B. G. at Sadsbun.', 
Lane. Co., Pa. His widow, Sarah, removed to Phila., 
where she d. 12-1S-1S13. 

The following items from Andrew's will may be of in- 
terest — the will being executed 2- -1S05, and probated 
4-9-1805: 

"Item. To my daughters Elizabeth and Cassandra each 
^^150 of money of Penna., at the age of 18 years, and 
should said daughters be unmarried at the time of ray 
death, then at the age of 18 years they are each to have 
;^20 as a v.-edding outfit, in lieu of what their married sis- 
ters received. I direct the plantation on which I live to 
be sold, also the wood-land on Valley Mountain, and the 
proceeds to be equally divided among my children, except 
Sarah Hall — to her only 4 pounds, for reasons best known 
to myself. The share of my daughter Ann Williams to be 
put on interest, the income of which to be paid to her dur- 
ing life and at her death to be at her disposal to and among 
her children. To my son-in-law Ellis Passmore one-ninth 
of all my estate, after deducting special bequests, 

"Igiveand bequeath unto my well beloved friends of Sads- 
bury Preparative Meeting, the sum of thirty pounds, to be

fn^\^^D m&^T;^ /u.n3i^' 



He mentions an ante-nuptial agreement with his wife as 
the reason for no provision for her in his will. 

17. Rebecca, b. 2-16-1744, m. 10-24-1764, at F. M. H., 
at Sadsbury, Lane. Co., Pa., to John, son of Calvin Cooper, 
of Sadsbury Twp., where John resided all his life. He was 
a farmer, and was also engaged in the manufacture of cloth. 
He was born 12-9-1739, and d. 2-15-1811. Rebecca d. 3-1S- 
1813. Both interred in F. B. G., at Sadsbury, Lane. Co., Pa. 

18. Jeremiah, b. 4-22-1745, m. in 1766, to Mary, dan. 
of Jacob and Elizabeth (Yates) Wildman, of Loudon Co., 
Va.* Jeremiah learned blacksmithing; he was a skilled 
and ingenious mechanic. He also followed silversmithing. 
He seems to have prospered, and to have amassed consid- 
erable means for the times in which he lived; but upon 
the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, being a Friend, 
he had strong religious scruples against war, and would 
not in any way aid those who were struggling to throw 
off the oppressor's yoke. He seems to have become very 
obnoxious to the patriots, amongst whom he resided; but 
after the most diligent and patient research, the author has 
failed to find any overt act of his, or of his sons, inconsistent 
with the principles of Peace, as inculcated by the Society 
to which they belonged. 'Tis true there were some Royal- 
ists in the section in which he lived, and the author pre- 
sumes he gave shelter and food to them as well as to the 
Loyalists, who came to his abode seeking it. 

* On 3-19-1766, he was complained of for out-going in marriage, but 
making the necessary acknowledgments, he was not disowned. See 
Sadsburv M. M. Records. 



52 ANDREW I^rOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

He and his sons, Solomon and Jacob, have been charged 
with harboring ''The Doanes and Other Refugees," but 
the author is convinced this statement is false, as his sons 
(Solomon and Jacob) were not old enough, even at the close 
of the Revolution, to take any part in it, and the following 
Certificate shows Jeremiah to have retained his member- 
ship among the Friends: 

"Whereas, Jeremiah Moore, late of this tovvnshipof Sads- 
bur}', county of Lancaster in Pennsylvania, moved with 
his family in the lotli month, last past, in order to travel 
to Niagara, with a viev/ to settle there, and he having re- 
quested a Certificate from our monthly meeting, but we, 
understanding that there is no established meeting of peo- 
ple called Quakers there, thought it was not according to 
our order to give him one, these may certify that he and 
his family are worthy members of our meeting. 

"Subscribed by us as members of Sadsbury particular 
meeting in a private capacity, the 7th of the 6th month, 
1789.

Rachel Truman. George Cooper. Samuel Downing, 

James !Moore. Asahel Walker. John William Farr. 

Elizabeth Moore. John Moore. Joseph IMoore (Joseph's 

Son.)" 
It is evident Jeremiah had verv' tr\'ing times, and suffered 
greatly at the hands of the Patriot army. His property 
was confiscated, and it is related that, on one occasion, 
some soldiers came to his house, and carried off all their 
silverware, dishes, etc., even taking the cup from which 
the baby drank its milk; drove off his cows, horses and 
sheep, in fact stripped him of everything, so that he had 
to depend upon the charity of his neighbors and friends. 
After struggling for a few years in a vain effort to regain 
his position in the community, he decided to remove with 
his family to Canada. In the fall of 17S8, he started, with 



THIRD GENERATION. 53 

his wife and children, on this lono^ trip, most of it through 
an unbroken wilderness, beset with all kinds of danger. 
The only means of conveyance was one horse, on which 
the wife and mother rode, carrying by turns the younger 
children. After about two months of toilsome, weary 
traveling, they reached Canada, 1 1-3-1 7SS. He settled in 
Stamford, County Welland, District of Niagara, Canada. 
Great as had been their trials in Penna., and on their 
tedious journey, they were destined to undergo still greater 
ones in their new home. The winter of 1788-9 was un- 
usually severe, and in mid-winter their stock of provisions 
was reduced to three pounds of flour for the entire family. 
Solomon and Jacob went out in search of food, and finding 
some, started for home. When within about three miles 
of their cabin, Jacob, from sheer exhaustion, gave out, and 
Solomon took him on his back, and carried him to their 
house, where, after great exertion, he was restored to con- 
sciousness. Their main sustenance was obtained by boil- 
ing the bark of spruce, beech, and other trees, and drink- 
ing it. 

The New York Tract Association of Friends published 
the following tract. No. xxv. Jeremiah's family is the 
particular one alluded to in it: 

"god's care of his children. 

"In the early settlement of Canada, a few families re- 
moved from Pennsylvania and passing through a wilderness 
of considerable extent, settled nearly thirty miles west of 
Buffalo. They cleared a small tract of land and raised 
some grain. In the autumn some more families joined 
them, depending upon their crops, but in consequence of 
so larcre an addition to their settlement their provisions 
failed, and the weather being very cold, and the snow 
deep, they could not go in search of food. They lived for 
some time on slippery elm and basswood, of which they 
made a kind of jelly; but this soon failed, for when the 
sap began to rise in the trees it made them sick. There 
now seemed no resource but to die, but Pie who careth for 
the sparrows and provideth food for the young ravens, re-

membered them. One morning, when they were ahnost 
discouraged, a pigeon was seen sitting on a tree near the 
door. It was taken by one of the family, and being cooked 
by the mother, was eaten with thankfulness. 

"For fourteen days a pigeon was seen in the same place, 
and supplied them with food for each day. On the fifteenth, 
the pigeon did not come, and one of the little boys, who 
was ill, and lying in bed, was looking for the daily visitant, 
asked his mother if she thought God was offended with 
them that He did not send another pigeon. On that morn- 
ing, the father, going to a stream of water, found the ice 
was melting, and caught several fish, which, with the sap 
which soon began to flow from the maple trees, preserved 
their lives." 

The following summer of 1789, v/as long remembered 
as the "Scarce-Season." After suffering untold hardships 
for a few years, he became, by industry and economy, 
enabled to not only comfortably support his family, but 
even acquired a fair competency, and attained a position 
in society, honored and respected throughout that entire 
section. Some years afterward, he and his wife paid a 
pleasant visit to his relatives and friends in Pennsylvania, 
coming the whole distance on horseback.

an honorable standing in his profession, continuing in

29. Rachel, b. , m. , to Francis Ross, a native 

of Virginia. When quite young, his parents emigrated 
to North Carolina, and settled in Mecklenburg County, 
between Coddle Creek and Rocky River. Before the Rev- 
olutionary War he came to the "New Acquisition," now 
York County, S. C, and located about two miles from where 
Yorkville is now situated. From his high sense of honor,

wealth, and uncommon grace of manner and person, he 
acquired in the settlement the title of ''Gentleman." In 
all the old land papers of Ross, though signed with a 
cross, he is styled "Gentleman" Frank Ross. He was a 
planter, and owned a mill property long known as Ross's 
Mill. After the battle of King's ^Mountain, during the 
Revolutionary War, Col. Tarleton, of the British army, 
encamped for some days at Ross's Mill to recruit his forces. 
At the beginning of the Revolution, Francis espoused the 
cause of the Whig party, and was an active partisan leader 
to the time of his death. His first service was in the 
"Snow Campaign," in the winter of 1775 and 1776. In 
the summer of 1776 he commanded a battalion from York, 
which was in the " Keowee Expedition," and in the 
spring of 1779, in command of a battalion of cavalry, 
joined Col. Hammond and his "light horse," near 
Augusta, Ga. On the morning of the 29th of ^larch, 1779, 
five miles east of Rocky Comfort, they attacked a party of 
Cherokees. Nine Indians were killed, and some white 
men who were dressed as savages, three Cherokees and 
three whites captured. The rest fled and saved them- 
selves. Here Maj. Ross received a mortal wound in the 
abdomen. From a ]MS. journal of Gen. Joseph Graham 
of N. C, we make the following extract: "The brave 
Major Frank Ross died of his wounds the 31st of March 
and was buried with military honors the ist of April, in 
sight of and opposite Augusta on the Carolina side (near 
where the present town of Hamburg, S. C, is located). 
Major Frank Ross was more than six feet in height, of a 
muscular frame, and weighed above two hundred pounds, 
had dark hair, eyes and complexion, of noble presence and 
commanding port. He was cut off in the meridian of life, 
being only about thirty-five years of age at the time of 
his death. He left three sons, little lads, James, Alex- 
ander and William. A faithful negro belonging to their 
father from boyhood, going always under the sobriquet 
of 'Cracker Tom,' managed their plantation after his 
master's death, working himself as well as making others 
do it, and during the minority of Major Ross's sons,

making the finest crops, keeping everything in order on 
the premises, and proving himself worthy tlie confidence 
reposed in him. When Alexander and William removed 
from the homestead of their father, 'Cracker Tom,' now 
verging toward old age, begged to stay in his 'old cabin- 
home.' They indnlged him, and every year sent abundant 
supplies for his support. At last the decrepitude of years 
made him willing to go to 'Mar's Alex's' to be taken care 
of till he died. Rachel was a rather remarkable woman. 
The night before her husband was killed, she dreamt that 
he had been killed, and was so impressed with her dream 
that she was not surprised when his death was announced 
to her. She d. 4-26-1790. Interred in Turkey Creek 
Presbyterian Cemetery, York Co., S. C. 

30. Andrew, b. 9-12-1747, m. 3-22-1770, to Anna Lat- 
imore. Andrew was a planter. He was a very active 
Whig, and when the Revolutionary war broke out, he 
was one of the first to take up arms in the cause of his 
country. Served with General Sumter, He rose to the 
rank of Colonel, and was wounded at the battle of 'King's 
Mountain.' He was, in common with the rest of the 
Americans of Scotch-Irish ancestry, particularly severe on 
those who remained loyal to the British Crown, and were 
termed by their neighbors, 'Tories.' One of Col. Love's 
sisters married a Loyalist. It was reported to Col. Love 
that there was to be a meeting of Loyalists at his brother- 
in-law's house on a certain evening. W^ith a portion of 
his command, he surrounded the building, and ordered 
the inmates to surrender. This of course they refused to 
do. Col. Love then notified them he would shoot the first 
one who came out. His sister, no doubt thinking she 
could appease her brother, appeared at the door and came 
out, unfortunately wearing a hat. One of the soldiers, 
mistaking: her for a man, fired and killed her. This was 
of course a great cause of regret to all parties. Col. Love 
was a daring officer, and being a man of great physical 
power, was beloved by his men and equally as much hated 
by his enemies. After the close of the war, he returned

to his plantation on Fishing Creek, York Co., S. C, where 
he resided until 1805, wlien he removed to Livingston, 
(now Crittenden) Co., Ky., where some of his children had 
previously removed. He represented York Co., S. C, for 
several years in the Legislature. Col. Love had that rich 
vein of humor for which so many of our Irish ancestors 
were noted. He is said to have been full of jokes, and 
very fond of practicing them on his friends. He was a very 
industrious man; even in his old age, he could not beaV 
to be idle. For many years after removing to Kentucky, 
he was actively engaged in farming. 3-26-1S21, he went 
out to work on his farm; not returning when he was ex- 
pected, search was made for him, and he was found in one 
of his fields, dead. In the " Legend of Ford's Ferry," it 
is stated, that, "Col. Love was the only witness for the Plff. 
in a case against the notorious Major James Ford, proprie- 
tor of Ford's Ferry. This Ferry was located about fifty- 
four miles from Paducah, Xy., on the Ohio river, and is 
still known by that name. On the day before the trial 
was to come off, Col. Love, bearing marks of violence, 
was found dead on his own farm, no doubt the victim of 
some of Ford's outlaws. " James Ford was afterwards shot 
on the veranda of his own house, whilst in the custody of 
officers, by some one unknown, though it was vaguely 
hinted it was Col. Love's son, Robert. Col. Love was 
buried on his farm, about fourteen miles from :\Iarion, 
Crittenden Co., Ky. Anna d. 5-18-1814.

Co., Miss. In 17S0, John was elected a ruling elder in 
Bethesda Presbyterian church, York Co., S. C. He be- 
came a prominent and useful member thereof. He was the 
leader of the music in worship.

of the Revolution, and was engaged to be married to Mar- 
garet McDowell. After the close of the war, he was so 
an.xious to see his affianced that he walked seventy-two 
miles in a day and part of a night to visit her; the exer- 
tion was too much, he was taken sick with a fever, and 
died suddenly. Margaret afterward married Robert's 
brother, William.

ersham : 

Endeavor my dearest and learn to obey, 
Let not volatile mirth come too much in thy way; 
May the Guardian of Heaven be surrounding thee near 
In thy youth, and nhen older, grand-parents to cheer. 
Remember, we're pilgrims to Him still drawing near, 
And if He says "Well done," we have nothing to fear. 
We are all well at present, and hoping that these 
Increasing blessings will give us true peace. 
Consider the value of health as I do, 
Keep near to the Fountain, religion pursue; 
Endeared Elmira, now do not forget, 
Riches and pleasures do often beset; 
Snares and traps are oft laid to entangle our feet. 
How needful to watch them to keep the mind straight. 
And now I conclude that an end must be made, 
Mav the Author of oeace aluavs loud thee His aid.

trade of a weaver, but soon quit this, and became a teacher. 
In his earlier life he was not religiously inclined, but, one 
night after retiring to rest, there appeared to his mental 
vision, what seemed like a bright light in the room. This 
appeared three times, each time fainter than before, and 
was accompanied with the warning words, that if he did 
not attend to the light given, it would be taken from him. 
Agitated by tl;e sirange and startling impressions thus 
made, he lay tremblingly until morning, when he arose a 
changed man; and afterward became an eminent minister 
in the Society of Friends. He died in his 34th year, and 
was interred in the F. B. G., at West Grove, Harrison

93. Joseph, b. 7-16-1773, ni. 11-24-1802, at Sadsbury 
F. M. H., to Jane, dan. of Ephraim and Rachel (Hartly) 
Smith, of Sadsbury, Lane. Co., Pa. Joseph owned a farm 
and saw-mill in Cecil Co., Md., where he resided. He was 
a deaf mute, but was apt in making- himself understood by 
signs, and in understanding^ others in the same way. It 
was related by a contemporary of his, that he dreamed 
where to go to find a wife, and going by his dream, found 
the place and the \-oung woman he had seen in the vision; 
which resulted in a suitable companionship for life. 

Their children all had their hearing and speech, and in his 
anxious desire to know if they could hear he would some- 
times make a loud noise, and then intently watch if they 
would notice it. He kept bees, and at one time had some 
stolen, and early next morning went to one of the neigh- 
bors, tapped one of the thieves on the shoulder, and by 
signs charged him and some others with the theft; which 
proved to be correct, and all of whom Joseph pointed out. 

He was a member of the Society of Friends, and would 
gaze intently at the minister, as if he gathered something 
of what was delivered. Various instances might be men- 
tioned of his finding out circumstances, and of his pointing 
upward, intimating that he had great faith and confidence 
in the way of truth and right.

M. H., to Elizabeth, dau. of Gaius and Mary (Newliu) 
Dickinson, of Sadsbnry, Lane. Co., Pa. James was a 



Chester Co. John married Margaret Parke. Charles was in his twelfth 
year when he came to America. He took part in the struggles of the 
Revolution for Independence, and on one occasion, when returning 
home (after beir-g out for several months with a scouting' party to pre- 
vent the British from plundering the inhabitants of Bucks, Chester, and 
Montgomery counties;— his time having expired January, 1778— he, with 
his father and several companions, were overtaken by British horsemen, 
and all taken prisoners. His father was barbarously wounded for not 
yielding readily, haviug made a desperate struggle to escape. 

This occurred near Spring House Tavern, Montgomery Cc, Pa. They 
were taken to Philadelphia, and kept in the Old Jail for five months; the 
father i^Thomas) dying in jail eight days after their capture, from severe 
wounds and want of attention. His son (Charles) was obliged to drive 
him in a rough wagon, at a rapid rate, with the blood trickliug through 
the crevices, and the horsemen swearing at him for not driving faster. 
When the jail was reached, they were separated, and never again saw- 
each other on earth. It is said he is interred at Montgomery Square, 
Mont. Co., Pa. 

In the fall of 17S0, Charles was at Stony Point, in General Anthony 
Wayne's command, when Arnold's conspiracy was discovered, and he 
with his companions marched all night along the Hudson River, to pre- 
vent the enemy from landing. 

Next day, they began a march for West Point, through a cold, heavy 
rain, so penetrating and chilling as to oblige them to seek shelter in the 
woods, where they nearly perished from the cold and wet ; some creep- 
ing under rocks, others under logs, where thej' remained until morning, 
when they resumed their march, reaching West Point at five o'clock 
that evening. They were at once detailed for duty, and it fell to his lot, 
with others, to go to "Britain's Defiance," a half mile beyond the Point, 
over the mountain. Already spent with fatigue and hunger, and ready 
to faint from weakness, they thought they could not possibly climb the 
mountain; but youth and ambition conquered, and at a little after dark, 
they reached the Fort, and he was one of the first sentinels placed on 
guard that evening. 

When relieved, he found his companions cooking and baking cakes, 
having broken open stores. It was long before his turn came to cook, 
and as he was almost starved (having had nothing to eat for three days 
but some wild cherries they found in a hollow along the Hudson), he 
searched until he found a barrel of shad, and voraciously fell to eating 
them raw, thinking them the best he had ever eaten. 

This is all that is left of an account of his war experience, written by 
himself, the other pages having disappeared, to our intense regret.

from home much of his time. The author has often heard

long vears after she had been laid to rest. Ellis m. 2d 
time 10-6-1S13, to Sarah, the widow of William Hall, and 
sister of his first wife. Ellis learned the blacksmith's 
trade with his father, after whose death he became the 
owner of tlie forges, and also the farm on Doe Run. He 
was a man of great energy and superior business qualifica- 
tions. About 1803 he bought a tract of land on Big Elk 
Creek, in New London Twp., and erected thereon what

was long famous under the name of the Pleasant Garden 
Iron Works. The hills on either side of the creek were 
densely covered with timber and laurel, and wild turkeys 
and other game svere abundant. He was also interested in 
other iron works situate on the same creek, near Turkey- 
town, Cecil Co., Md. In 1814, he moved back to his 
property on Doe Run, and in 1S16, in conjunction with 
his brother-in-law, Benjamin Jones, of Philadelphia, pur- 
chased 4.000 acres of land on the Potomac River, in St. 
Mary's Co., Tsld., at $8.00 per acre, and moved thereon 
with his family in May, 1S17. In September of that year 
(the sickly season), he sent his children to Chester Co., 
Pa., and he v/ith his wife also started for the same destina- 
tion, stopping on his way, in Loudon Co., Va. , to visit 
some relatives, where he was taken violently ill with a 
fever, and after a brief illness, died at the residence of 
Whitson Birdsall, who was his cousin, 10-5-1817. In- 
terred in F. B. G., at Goose Creek, Loudon Co., Va. 
Ellis was noted for his physical strength and activity. It 
is said he was never throv.m in a fair wrestle, and that, 
with the use of a pole, he could jump entirely over a cov- 
ered wagon on its wheels. The late Hon. William Wil- 
liamson, of West Chester, Pa., often related the following 
incident conceruiug him: "At the raising of a barn at Doe 
Run village, and when Ellis was about 19 years of age, 
after the labor was over they amused themselves, as was the 
custom in those days, by engaging in wrestling and other 
athletic sports, in which no one could throw him; but some 
carpenters were present from Lancaster, Pa., and said they 
knew a man who could do it. Some time afterward, 
while Ellis was repairing fence along the roadside, a 
stranger rode up and inquired for "Doe Run Tavern." 
He said also that he had never been thrown, and had come 
on to have a trial with Ellis Passmore of that neighbor- 
hood. Our fence-maker told him he knew the young man 
he was inquiring for, quite well, and suggested that he go 
over into the field and try him, when he could determine 
whether it would be worth while to seek Ellis. Entering 
into a mutual agreement that neither should eet out of

humor, they ''took holds," and the stranger was thrown 
several times in succession. Ellis then made himself 
knowm, invited the Lancaster man to his home, where he 
took dinner with him, and had his horse cared for; after 
which he went on his way, very clearly satisfied that he 
had met a man who was his superior in physical power 
and agilitv. Ellis was an ingenious mechanic, skilled and 
successful, and could make two horse-shoe nails "atone 
heat." /O.

loO. Solomon, b. in 1766, m. in 1792, to Mary, dau. of 
Joseph and Rebecca (Griffa) Wildman, of Loudon Co., Va. 
Mary died in 1S06. Solomon m. 2d time, 11-14-1806, to 
Elinor, dau. of Col. Francis Stevenson of the English 
Army, who received wounds at the battle of Lexington, 
Mass., from the effects of which he died. 

Solomon had, in 178S, emigrated with his parents to 
Canada. In a few years afterward he returned, on a visit 
to his relatives and friends in Pennsylvania, and remain- 
ing longer than the family thought he should, and as they 
had heard nothing from him after his leaving home, his 
brother Jacob was sent for him. Upon reaching Penna., 
he found that Solomon had left there to visit his uncle — 
Joseph Wildman — and family, in Loudon Co., Va. On 
arriving there, he learned of Solomon's marriage to Mary, 
the dau. of his Uncle Joseph. Jacob remained but a short 
time, when he also married a dau. of his Uncle Joseph. 
Thus we see two brothers marrying two sisters who were 
their cousins. Soon after, Solomon and Jacob, with their 
young wives, went to Canada, and settled in the Township 
of Pelham, County Welland, Province of Ontario. Solo- 
mon was a man of great physical strength and agility, and 
marvelous stories are told of his feats in jumping and 
wrestling. During the War of 1S12, he was captain of a 
company, serving under the British General Isaac Brock. 
After the burning of Ft. George, in 1S14, Capt. Moore 
asked for and obtained permission to go over to Buffalo,

brother, Solomon. Soon after marriage, he with his young 
wife, returned to the wilds of his northern home. They 
accomplished the entire distance from Loudon Co., Va., 
on horseback. They settled on a farm in the township of 
Pelham, County Welland, Out., where they spent a long 
and peaceful life, useful in the community, and honored

Benjamin and Barbara (Bullock) Wilson, of Woodford Co., 
Ky. Ann d. 4-21-1839, in Lexington, Ky. When quite 
young, Benj. was sent to school at Mt. Airy Seminary, near 
Philadelpliia, but whilst there a desire to go to sea so fas- 
cinated him that he left school and embarked on a sailing 
vessel. The vessel was wrecked during a storm, the cap- 
tain and mate, with a few of the men, escaped, but the 
majority of the crew, Benjamin among them, were left to 
their fate. IMost of them escaped to the shore which 
proved to be a barren one. Benjamin's knowledge of 
astronomy aided by such instruments as he obtained from 
the wreck, enabled him to ascertain that they were on the 
coast of Labrador. Going farther inland, they met some 
Esquimaux. The baud becoming separated, Benjamin 
spent the wanter in a snow-hut with a hermit. In the 
spring he made his way into Canada, but here a new 
trouble awaited him. The war between the United States 
and England was in progress (1812) and he was arrested 
by the British as an American spy and confined in a block- 
house until the place was taken by the Americans, when 
he was released. He then went to visit his mother's 
brother, Benjamin Canby, who had settled some years 
before in Canada. His uncle was wealthy and offered him 
a home and property if he would take the oath of allegiance 
to the British Government. The young American refused 
to do this and returned to his father's home in Penna. 
The following is furnished by his daughter Barbara. 
"At one time, in a storm at sea, the captain ordered a 
boy to climb the mast, and furl the sail. The storm was 
furious, and the boy, very naturally, was afraid to try it.

ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



My father prepared to go in his place. He secured his 
bible next his hearty feeling the need of Divine protection^ 
and began to climb the mast. The furious gale bent the 
mast over the sea, and it seemed as if he must fall into the 
foaming depths below. But at last he gained the top, ac- 
complished his work, and descending reached the deck 
with his precious bible in safety. In relating this anecdote 
afterwards he would (to the amusement of his hearers) 
stop in the middle of the story and remark ' And Bab 
(meaning me) lost that bible at last' " In 1816 he re- 
moved with the rest of his father's family to Ohio, and in 
a few years later to Mercer Co., Ky., where he resided for 
some years, teaching and farming. In May, 1S35, he was 
unanimously chosen Professor of ^Mathematics in Morrison 
College of Transylvania University, Lexington, Ky., at a 
salary of 3S00 per annum, a position which his fine mathe- 
matical ability enabled him to fill with credit to himself 
and profit to his students. He relinquished his position 
after some years and purchased property in Illinois, near 
Springfield, removing to it. He there spent the remainder 
of his days. From numerous letters and other writings of 
his which the author has examined, it is evident he was a

The following extract is taken from a Memorial con- 
cerning him, published in the Minutes of the Baltimore 
Yearly Meeting of the Society of Friends for 1875: 

" In the year 1796, Jeremiah removed with his family, and 
settled in Centre County, then nearly a wilderness. The 
advantages of education were, at that early day, limited, yet 
amid these privations, they earnestly endeavored to train 
up their children, to habits of honesty, industry, and tem- 
perance, which characteristics distinguished them during 
life. In 1810, they crossed the Alleghanies, and settled in 
Cle?irfield County, where they were the pioneers in the es- 
tablishment of West Branch Monthly ^Meeting in 1833, 
an indulged meeting having been held at their house for 
several years previously. The subject of this memoir was 
early impressed with a sense of the Divine Presence, stim- 
ulating him to obedience to its requirings, and showing 
him that this alone would give him peace. He was a reg- 
ular and faithful attender of all his religious meetings, in 
which his ministry was profitable and edifying. His com- 
munications were generally brief, yet in the authority of 



FOURTH GENERATION. 109 

the Gospel of Christ; aud his gift having been early ac- 
knowledged by his Monthly Meeting, he traveled in the 
service of truth within the limits of other Yearly Meet- 
ings. In the year 1S57, he attended Ohio Yearly Meeting, 
and most of the meetings composing it; and on his return, 
expressed the satisfaction and peace of mind he felt in the 
accomplishment of this service. In 1S64, he was taken 
ill, and during his prostration, he felt the overshadowing 
of Divine Love, and he was made sensible that he would 
be accepted if he continued faithful to the end; he often 
referred to this season as a foretaste of joys to come. He 
was much inclined to reading and meditation, and as age 
advanced, spent much of his time in retirement. The fol- 
lowing extract from a letter written to one of his daugh- 
ters, then at a distance from home, will give evidence of 
the state of his mind: 

" 'As thou art absent from thy friends with whom thou 
didst love to mingle, and from our meetings where strength 
is to be obtained, hold on thy way in the path of virtue; 
for in every place we shall be preserved if we keep inward 
and watchful, for the Scripture saith, "Greater is he that 
is in you, than he that is in the world," and again, "Hold 
fast to tliose things whicli thou hast learned," and "Have 
no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but 
rather reprove them.'' I sometimes feel lonely, but have 
many kind friends, and the love I feel for them tends to 
make life happy; and above all, as my time in this world 
is fast coming to a close, I have an unshaken confidence 
that when it comes, I shall pass to a purer state of happi- 
ness, to meet with many who are gone before to their ever- 
lasting rest.' 

"He was an attentive peruser of the Holy Scriptures, to 
the truth of which he could bear testimony by living ex- 
perience. On being told that some of his friends were 
coming to hold a meeting in his room, he replied that it 
'rejoiced his heart.' When no longer able to read, he re- 
quested to have the Scriptures read to him, until frail 
nature gave way. Almost the last words that were audi- 
ble were, 'We. know not in what watch of the ni^ht the 



no ANDREW MOORE AND' HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Son of Man cometh.' His remains were followed by a 
very large concourse of Friends and others, and a solemn 
meeting was held on the occasion, in which testimonies 
were borne to the purity of his life and peaceful close."

Bucks Co., Pa. They settled in Half Moon Valley, but 
removed to Clinton Co., O., in the fall of 1S25. Her 
daughter, Hannah S., furnishes the following interesting 
account of the journey: 

"They traveled with their household goods in a wagon 
to Pittsburg, Pa., where they bought a flat-boat, and set out 
on their voyage down the Ohio river. The crew, all told, 
consisted of husband, wife, and a one year old son, ac- 
companied by their faithful dog. Drifting by day with 
the current, and at night mooring their boat, sometimes 
sleeping by a fire on the shore, and sometimes in the boat 
— having anchored it at cable's length out in the river, 
that they might be safe from the wild beasts of the forest, 
in having it easy of access. They continued on their 
perilous journey, and at last reached Cincinnati, O., where 
they sold the boat, and proceeded by conveyance to 
Waynesville, Warren Co., O. , where Isaiah secured employ- 
ment and a home for the winter. Afterward they located 
more permanently at a point six miles from Wilmington, 
Clinton Co., where he set up a blacksmith's forge, and fol- 
lowed the trade for some years, when he bought a farm in 
the same county and located on it in 1S39, and continued 
to live there, where Elizabeth d. 12-23-1S5S. She was a

was editor of a paper, and also frequently taught school. 
He was also interested in flouring and woolen mills from 
1835 to 1S40, and was part ov.nier. In 1840 he took an 
active part in the anti-slavery movement, and undertook 
to promote free-labor ideas, in establishing a store at 
Stormstown, Pa., where no slave-labor products were al- 
lowed to be sold, but it failed to receive the requisite 
patronage. From 1840 to 1S44, he owned and worked a 
farm some three miles from Stormstown, when he re- 
moved to Stark Co., O., where he lived one year, and then 
went to Gnrneysville, O., 6 miles from Wilmington, and 
settled dov.-n to blacksmithing until 1855, about which 
time he moved to Cincinnati, O., hoping to secure better

He d. in Charleston, W. Va. , 6-1-1876, in which place he 
was interred in the "Spring Hill Cemetery." The fol- 
lowing peculiar statement concerning him, is furnished us 
by his son: "In about 1S40, on account of his claimed 
'liberal views,' he joined the 'Progressive Friends.' He 
afterwards adopted spiritualism, in which belief he con- 
tinued until his death. He had particularly declared to 
the wife of one of his sons, that (after death) if opportunity

accordin.^ to the accepted tests of spiritualism, he has 
done, but lol his message to his children is, ' Believe on 
the Lord Jesus Christ!' and declaring that spiritualism 
and Christianity do not go together. He wauts them to

*' Helpless infant, couldst thou whisper 

To inquirers a reply, 
Wouldst thou of parental kindness 

Not feel bound to testify? 
Food and raiment, fond caresses, 

Faithful watching, anxious care. 
Are among the many favours 

Which have fallen to thv share.

" Poor an>l hungry thin-clad mortal, ' 

Without kindred, without home, j 

Destined amid scorn and sorrow, |

Whose abundance thou dost share, -x 
Duty bids thee to be thankful 

For that stranger's aid and care. 

" Erring and degraded being, -, 

Blest in youth witli Christian care, '.;

ily grace is sufficient for thee, j 

Trust his word in every need. 

"Oh ! thou sick afflicted mourner. 

Of some wonted powers bereft, 
Cast thy spirit's eye around thee, 

And behold the blessings left; 
Think how many acts of kindness 

Thou receivest on thy way, 
Soothing words, and looks of pity, 

Have been proffered day by day. 

" Aged and sorrow-stricken toiler. 

Bowed and weary 'ueath the weight 
Of misfortune's wrongs and crosses, 

WTiich have marked thy pilgrim state; 
Often has thy wounded spirit 

Been made strong by holy strength, 
To calmly endure life's trials, 

And hope to find rest at length.

At the sight revealed to thee, 
In clear outlines while approaching

devoted to his God, marked by his pure and humble liv- 
ing, loved for his uprightness of soul, admired for his char- 
acter and revered for his benevolence; meek and forgiving, 
his name is entwined imperishably in the memory of all 
that knew him. His life was one of marked usefulness

dau. of Thomas and Mary Peart, of Columbia, Pa. Re- 
becca was b. 3-19-1789. The following extract is from the 
Lancaster, Pa., New Era : 

"Israel Cooper, a prominent citizen of Columbia thirty 
or more years ago, died at the residence of his son, Jere- 
miah, in Glen Hope, Clearfield County, on the i6th day 
of April, 187S, aged about eighty-five years. For thirty 
years he was the most extensive builder in Lancaster 
County. He erected all the public buildings along the 
line of the Columbia and Philadelphia Railroad, and a 
number of the bridges also along the line. He erected all 
the lock-houses and offices along the Tide Water Canal, 
and some of the locks. 

"He was a person endowed with wonderful energy and 
endurance. It was no unusual occurrence for him to walk 



164 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

from Columbia to this city, and return to the former place 
in the same manner, and walk perhaps ten or fifteen miles 
further to inspect his work and instruct those employed by 
him. He was the first person to enter his shop in Colum- 
bia, at daylight, and see that every one had his proper 
work assigned him, and that all were properly at work as 
soon as daylight appeared. He always had several ap- 
prentices, and he was careful that they did not run out of 
•work should he be accidentally away from home one or 
two days, for he gave them at least a week's work in ad- 
vance. It was always his custom to send his apprentices 
to school during the three winter months, for three, four 
and five years. He was taciturn, and very strict with his 
boys, and never permitted them to be out of his house 
after nine o'clock in the evening. He had uncommon 
courage and ner\-e and self-possession. 

"Although a Quaker, and opposed from principle to the 
use of force against force, we have seen him stand before 
a crowd of men, who undertook to bull-doze and cow him 
into measures, and even threatened his life; unmoved, he 
would look a man through and through. He was waylaid 
and attacked by robbers at night, two or three times, and 
never lost his presence of mind. His quick wit and nerve 
saved him. An incident occurred in Columbia about the 
year 1841, which will illustrate one of these traits. While 
on his way to Friends' Meeting-House on Cherry Street, 
on Fifth-day (Thursday ), he observed the roof of his shop, 
a few hundred yards distant, to be on fire. He did not 
hesitate a moment, but went straight to meeting, and after 
it was out leisurely walked to his shop. But little damage 
was done. He asked no questions, but pursued his busi- 
ness as if nothing unusual had taken place. 

"He married Rebecca Peart, daughter of Thomas Peart, 
who w^as taken prisoner by the Indians, with the Gilbert 
family, ninety years ago. She was an amiable, intelligent 
and Christian woman. She died a few years ago, over 
eighty years of age."

with L'ncle Ab'm Bell, at Bayside, Long Island, and in

near the Gap, Lane. Co., Pa., up to July, 1S27. Then I 
entered the service of the State of Pennsylvania, as Sub. 
Ass't Engineer under IMaj. Jno. Wilson, Chief Engineer. 
Mr. Haynes, Principal Ass't; Robt. Petti t, Ass't Rodman; 
Jno. Edgar Thompson (since the President of the famous 
'Pennsylvania Railroad') and myself as Sub. Ass't Chain- 
bearers; Joshua Scott, Topographer; and a INIr. Dawson as 
Axe-man. This party, at the summit of Mine Ridge, 
Lane. Co., Pa., commenced the _^rs^ survey for a railroad 
in Pennsylvania, if not the very first in the United States, 
excepting the gravity power railroad at Mauch Chunk; 
and I am now, I believe, since the demise of J. Edgar 
Thompson, the oldest civil engineer in the United States 
living. I continued in the service of the State as civil 
engineer until ^larch, 1833, a period of five years and nine 
months. Then, after surveying and locating the Philadel- 
phia and Columbia Railroad, first at Lancaster, and then 
at the Gap the latter half of the time, a singular circum- 
stance occurred: I was then a Sub. Ass't, and had entire 
control of the Gap division (10 miles), the most difficult

and intricate to locate of the whole So miles of the road, 
in localing my section I had departed from the original 
lines of snrvey, and was censured for so doing; but in pass- 
ing over that road in 1S76, on my way to the Centennial 
Exposition at Philadelphia, it was a source of no little 
satisfaction and gratification to my pride to see and know 
that my location of the "Gap Division" was the only ten 
miles of the whole road that had not been improved upon 
or altered; and that after a test of more than forty years 
the ideas and v.-ork of those inexperienced days had not 
been substituted by anything of the scientists of the pres- 
ent advanced day. In ]\Iarch, 1833, I left the service of 
the State, and afterward became Resident Engineer of the 
Little Schuylkill R. R. and Coal Co. (Edw. Keating, 
President), and was stationed at Tamaqua, Schuylkill Co., 
Pa., and remained until Oct. i, 1S34 (1^-2 years). While 
in their employ I dispensed with all the horse-power on 
the road, but continued to do the same amount of trans- 
portation by the steam-power already on that road. They 
had previously worked thirty horses or more. This greatly 
reduced the company's current expenses. On Oct. i, 1834, 
on account of failing health, I obtained leave of absence 
for the winter (the company refusing to accept my resigna- 
tion), and went to Philadelphia in search of superior med- 
ical aid. Finding no relief, I soon sailed for Charleston, 
S. C. In the month of November I took passage in the 
Brig Cronstadt, Capt. Hatch, and after a severe and tem- 
pestuous journey of seven weeks at sea, we arrived safely 
at Marseilles, France. After spending the winter there, I 
visited the naval city of Toulon, then traveled over the 
mountains of Sardinia, and on to the beautiful lake and 
city of Geneva, .Switzerland. Returning again on my 
way to France, I visited the ancient Roman cities of Aosta 
and Nimes, the silk-manufacturing city of Lyons, and be- 
sides other places of less repute, and finally reached the 
fascinating city of Paris. After a most pleasant and agree- 
able sojourn in this bewitching centre of modes and fash- 
ions, I left the attractive scenes of France, by way of 
Kouen and the port of Havre, crossing the British Channel

to Portsmouth and Southampton, thence to London, Bir- 
mingiiam, 2\Ianchester, Sheffield, York, and other notable 
places in England. Then I went to Edinburgh, and 
Glasgow, and the Highlands of "Auld Scotia," after 
which crossed St. George's Channel, to Belfast, Dublin, 
the Giant's Causeway so famed in the Emerald Isle. 
Leaving this hospitable and humorous people, I visited 
Wales, and proceeded thence to Liverpool. After sojourn- 
ing awhile with my distant relatives (the Bells), I sailed 
from that port in one of my Uncle Ab'm Bell's ships, the 
bark Nashua, Capt, Pollard, and after a long but not un- 
pleasant voyage arrived safely at Mobile, Ala,, on the day 
of the winter solstice in 1835. I resided there until May, 
1837, during which time I made a preliminary survey, and 
then located and had constructed nine miles, and put on a 
locomotive and train of cars on the Mobile and Cedar 
Point R. R., which extended a distance of 275-3 miles 
toward New Orleans, after May, 1837, the time when 
nearly all the banks and most of the commercial business 
men of the whole country either suspended or failed alto- 
gether. By this time my health had become so impaired 
that I was compelled to desist from further business, and 
went to Mobile, and by way of New Orleans I sailed for 
the island of Cuba, arriving there early in January. I 
spent the winter on the island, but most of the time in bed 
in the city of Havana. In April, 1839, I returned to Ala- 
bama, so reduced in strength as to be entirely confined to 
mv bed, and in August following was conveved on a mat- 
tress to White Sulphur Springs, Talladega Co., Ala., 
where I remained confined to my bed until April iSth, 
1840, when I was able to arise, walk out and set foot on 
the ground, a feat I had been unable to perform for four- 
teen or fifteen months before. During all this time I con- 
tinued to study the French ''Le Roy Pelgas" system of 
medicine, under which treatment I was raised from my 
bed of languishing. 

"In November, 1840, in company with my preceptor, Dr. 
P. B. Raynal, I went back to Mobile, where we practiced 
together until ist Monday in August, 1841, when I re-

moved alone Lo Marion, Perry Co., Ala., and practiced 
medicine until the close of the year 1S56. During these 
17 years, I cured many cases of chronic and long standing 
diseases, which had been given up as incurable by many 
other physicians. Some of my patients came from far-ofif 
States. From constant practice and exposed to the un- 
healthfulness of the sick-room, I became completely broken 
down again in health, and after being confined to my bed 
most of the winter, I returned the next summer to my old 
quarters at Talladega Springs, and remained without any 
perceptible improvement until the stormy season of the 
autumnal equinox, at which time my extreme suffering 
greatly distressed me in mind, for I felt persuaded that I 
should be unable to withstand the severity of the ap- 
proaching winter, if I remained anywhere within the 
bounds of my native United States, Knowing that the 
Spanish language (which I could not then speak) was 
spoken in all the warmer climates to which I could readily 
resort in my extreme condition, and believing the current 
reports of the bloodthirstiness of the race, who would not 
hesitate to take human life for the sake of a few gold dol- 
lars, I was greatly distressed, and had become, as I thought, 
entirely sleepless; but this must have been somewhat il- 
lusory, for, whether sleeping or waking, I had a very 
remarkable dream. And as this was not the first strange 
dream I had, and all of which had come to pass in after 
years, I did not hesitate to follow the course my present 
dream seemed to point out, 

"Consequently, as soon as the day came, assistance was 
procured, and I was placed in my buggy in a recumbent 
position (^being unable to sit upright), and in this low con- 
dition I traveled alone 80 miles, through much of a wilder- 
ness country, to the town of Marion, Ala. ]My health 
improving but little, and still keeping in view the impres- 
sions of my dream, I made the necessary preparations for 
niy prospective journey, and on the 6th of November, 1852 
(Presidential Election-day), I left Marion, and, taking a 
steamer of the Vanderbilt Line from New Orleans, sailed 
for Juan del Norte, Nicaragua. I visited the British settle-

inent in the Mosquito country, and several of the Centrr.l 
American States. In Costa Rica, I stood upon the brink 
of the crater of Cartago volcano, ii, loo feet above the level 
of the sea. With my feet fixed upon the ground, without 
moving them, I looked over one shoulder and plainly saw 
away out into the vast blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean; 
then over the other shoulder I looked down, apparentlv 
almost under my feet, and beheld the agitated waters of 
the Atlantic in the Caribbean Sea. Mr. Stephens, the 
New York writer of travels, was the only American — 
prior to my visit — who ever beheld at once, standing on 
the land, this m.agnificent view, and was able to look away 
oflf, apparently into m.id-ocean, of the two greatest waters 
on the face of the globe. 

"I realized in that country the complete fulfillment of 
my late dream, for as I had dreamed, our boat really be- 
came unmanageable, and dashing down the greatly swollen 
and rapid current of the river Sarapitei, the lives of our 
party were all endangered; but, finally, after great exer- 
tion and extraordinary skill of some of the natives — one 
man taking a line in his mouth, dived into the rushing 
current more than 20 feet deep, down to the bottom of the 
river, then crawled out and up the bank on shore, and 
made the line fast to a tree — we eventually were safely 
landed on terra firma. In the excitement and dangers of 
the moment, I cried out, 'I've got safe on shore without 
even wetting my feetl' when I immediately recollected 
that these were the words which I had used in my dream 
some months before at the Springs; and I ought to have 
said too that I was very thankful to God for His great 
preservation. The other incidents of my dream (and they 
were numerous) were all either literally or symbolically 
fulfilled. But to return from this episode, I will repeat 
that I made my home either in ^Mobile or Marion, Ala., 
from the last of December, 1S35, until the first of the year 
1857, being 21 full years. In the month of ^larch of that 
year, I arrived for the first time in Texas, so that I have 
now lived here over 21 years also. Upon my first arrival 
here, I engaged in the stock business, and traveled over 



FIFTH GENERATION. 



193 



many portions of the vast territory of this great State. 
In 185S, with a friend, I went across the plains and into 
Mexico, and purchased a large herd (4,000) of sheep; we 
drove them up into the north-western part of the State, on 
the upper waters of the Brazos River, where we intended 
to make our homes, but in tlie latter part of that year, the 
Camanche Indians broke in upon the frontier settlement; 
and having no protection from the general government 
against these hostile savages, we were obliged to abandon 
our enterprise and fall back to the older settlements. In 
1859, I purchased the place of my present abode on Doe 
Run Creek, near the historic town of Washington, on the 
Brazos, in Washington County, Texas, which has been my 
constant home since February, i860. 

"Thus have I given you some of the incidents and 
checkered scenes of my life, scarcely relating more than 
bare facts; leaving out some singular occurrences, espe- 
cially one very uncommon one, which I shall here relate. 
It is the remarkable dream which I have already referred 
to. When I was 17 or 18 years old, residing on the farm 
with my Uncle Robert, one Saturday night I dreamed 
that I was in the 'barn-field,' and that it was then in 
'corn-stock ground,' and I had with me a strange-looking 
instrument, which stood upon three legs^ with a handle to 
it, by which I could turn the zvorld. I thought the world 
was not properly fixed up, or at least was not in the right 
position; accordingly I placed the instrument firmly on its 
three legs, then laid hold of the handle, and proceeded, as 
I thought, to make the necessary alteration, and correctly 
adjust the position of this world. As if to aid me in my 
undertaking, toward the south there appeared in the heav- 
ens a very peculiar-looking cloud, having a perfectly 
straight line on top, which I perceived in after years as 
seeming to represent a certain railroad embankment, and 
the cloud not being fixed solidly to the earth, answered 
for an object as a guide, to enable me to determine with ac- 
curacy. I thought I ought to bring this sublunary prob- 
lem, which seemed very much out of place, to a properly 
adjusted position, and succeeded in accomplishing the 

13 



194 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

object in view to my' entire satisfaction, and thus ended 
my dream. 

"Next morning, soon after arising, I walked out on the 
front porch, the sun being about a half hour high; away 
out on the southern horizon I beheld a peculiar-looking 
cloud, having a straight top. My first thought was, 'Why, 
I have seen that cloud before!' Then again I bethought 
myself, 'No! that is impossible, for I have just arisen, and 
only finished rubbing my eyes after the night's sleep!' In 
a moment the incidents of my dream flashed across my 
mind; the real cloud bore the exact resemblance of the 
one I had seen in my dream. At the breakfast table I re- 
lated to my mother and the rest of the family the incidents 
of my dream. 

*'vSome seven or eight years after this period, when I 

had become an assistant engineer on the Col. and Phila. 

R. R., and stationed on the 'Gap' division (in which was 

included my Uncle Robert's 'barn-field'), my chief, Major 

Wilson, Iia\ing gone to the Island of Cuba in search of 

better health, and Mr. H. R. Campbell, second in rank, 

lying disabled at Downingtown, having a pistol-ball shot 

in his leg, I was left in command, and had full control of 

the operations of this division, and was master of my own 

, actions — I took my three-legged transit instrument, went 

.into my Uncle Robert's 'barn-field,' it being then in 

'corn-stock ground,' just as I had seen it in my dream 7 

> or 8 years before. I placed my instrument and laid hold 

• of the handle, and if I did not then turn the seeming 

■ corporeity of this mundane sphere, I certainly did then 
and there turn all the many 'ins and outs,' up and down 

■ deflections of the most sinuous location of the Phila. and 
^ Columbia R. R., into one grand, straight, tangent line, 

from the 'Gap' summit, over all the intricacies of the face 
of that section of the county down to Moore's mill-dam, 
near the outlet of the line into the great Chester Valley. 
This insubordinate, and I might say, somewhat inUiitive 
act of mine, was, it may be safely said, the original of what 
were afterward called 'Air-Line Railroads.' It was a great 
innovation on the ideas of that day, and I was severely

censured for my boldness; but it could not be revoked, for 
before any of my superiors arrived on the ground, the 
construction and work were too far advanced to make any 
change without unreasonable expense and loss to the 
State."

Catharine M. b. 5-13-1817, d. 5-13-1894. James is a civil 
engineer by profession, and commenced as rodman in an 
Engineer Corps, Pennsylvania R. R., when he was about 
15 years old, since which time he has been ardently de- 
voted to his calling. In 1828 he was assistant engineer in 
the construction of the Philadelphia and Columbia R. R. 
(the first attempt of the construction of a passenger rail- 
way in the United States). In 1830 he was engaged on 
the Minehill and Schuylkill Haven R. R., and in 1832 we 
find him completing the Phila. and Germantown R. R. 
(the first road engaged in actual passenger traffic); in 
1833, as Asst. Engineer on the Phila. and Trenton R. R. ; 
in 1834 on the Rensselaer and Saratoga road, at which 
time they also constructed the bridge across the Hudson at 
Troy. In 1S35 '^^^ became Chief Engineer of the Eliza- 
bethtown and Somerville R. R., and in 1838 built a bridge 
over the Brandywine River in Delaware, remaining on the 
Elizabeth and Somerville until 1845, when he was engaged 
as Chief Engineer in widening the Morris Canal. In

1846 he was called to locate the Vermont Central R. R., 
and subsequently became its Chief Engineer and Superin- 
tendent, building in the meantime, the Vermont and 
Canada road, the Sullivan branch, and other roads. 

In 1S54 he was called as Superintendent of the Michigan 
Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad, where he re- 
mained with his headquarters at Adrian, Mich., bringing 
order out of chaos, until 1856, when he returned East, 
and contracted to build the East Pennsylvania road from 
Allentown to Reading, thus completing the last link in 
the great chain now known as the Allentown route to the 
West, which he had always predicted would be the result 
of the construction of the Elizabethtown and Somerville 
road, commenced in 1835. 

In i860 he was called once more to his old field of labor, 
as Chief Engineer of the New Jersey Central R. R. The 
South Branch road, from Somerville to Flemington, then 
the extension from Elizabeth to Communipaw, with the 
famous bridge two miles long over Newark Bay, which 
was completed in 1864, then the Newark and New York 
road with a series of bridges over the streets, and pene- 
trating to the very heart of the city of Newark, have all 
been completed under his direction and supervision. He 
was also engaged in constructing the Elizabeth and Perth 
Amboy, and the New York and Long Branch roads, as 
well as the connecting bridge across the Raritan river, 
4,400 feet long, with six iron spans, and with a draw 472 
feet in length, the largest in the world. 

He was appointed by President U. S. Grant as one of 
the Commissioners to re-examine the entire main line of 
the Union Pacific R. R. from Omaha to Ogden, with the 
view to ascertain if it was in all respects finished in ac- 
cordance with the provisions of the Acts of Congress, by 
which the company was to receive its full and complete 
grants of the public lands. Associated with him was a 
member of Congress, and the son of the Secretary of the 
Interior, Mr. John S. Delano, and accompanying them w^ere 
the Prest. of the Union Pacific R. R. and some of the Di- 
rectors. Prest. Grant, in appointing Col. Moore to this

position of great trust and responsibility under the Gov- 
ernmeut, made a wise selection of an engineer at once 
scientific, practical, and of great experience.

he was identified, we have the names of the following: 
Coburg and Peterboro; Grand Trunk or Great Western; 
Champlain and St. Lawrence; Toronto and Guelph;

"To faithfully write the history of his life would be to 
record the leading events of the history of our Church. 
He believed himself to have been a true believer from the 
age of ten years, at which age he entered the Sabbath- 
school as a scholar, and from that time until his death, 75 
years later, he never ceased to attend upon and enjoy this 
part of the Church's work. 

"He was for many years Clerk of the Waynesboro 
Church. Lexington Presbytery has never had presented 
to it more accurate or beautifully kept books than he sent 
up annually for their supervision. Never was there an 
exception taken to his records from the beginning to the 
end. He wrote a brief History of Waynesboro Church, 
which is now preserved in the Archives of the Presbyterian 
Historical Society. 

"Being a man of perfect health and of a sunny tempera- 
ment, he enjoyed all God's gifts; quiet, yet ready wit lit 
up his talk and made him a most delightful companion. 
His piety being of a bright and happy type, was appreci- 
ated by all."

250 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

he lost his life, he was granted a furlough, and would not 
have been in this engagement liad it not bee.i for oue of 
the most noble and generous acts that any brave man coukl 
perform. One of the members of his Company had re- 
ceived a letter from home that his wife was dying, and slie 
wished to see him. John H. immediately offered this com- 
rade his own furlough, and he went to the bedside of his 
dying wife to cheer her last moments. John H. went into 
the engagement next day, and in common with thousands 
of other brave boys, gave his life as a sacrifice to his 
country, and with the consciousness of having done some- 
thing to soothe the last hours of a devoted and noble wife.

dam near the Fort. He was then First Lieut. 21st U. S. 
Infantry. The estimation in which Lieut. Moore was held 
by his comrades is expressed in a letter to his sister from 
the Post Adjutant, announcing his death: "His military 
career has been full of honor; he has never lacked warm 
friends wherever he served. He was honored at the Fort, 
and when a brief tribute to his worth was finished not only 
the ladies and officers present, but many of the soldiers 
whom he had commanded, testified by the eloquence of 
their tears their deep regard for the dead comrade."

hood and early manhood Isaac C. was an extensive traveler. 
In writing to the author he says he had traveled in seven- 
teen States and Canada before he was twenty-one years of 
age. He had some rather miraculous escapes and wonder- 
ful experiences. He traveled by steamboat down the Ohio 
and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. He was on the 
steamboat "America" at the time of its terrific explosion 
when so many were killed. Most of the crew on the boat 
were intoxicated, and although a mere boy, he was selected 
to guide them because they knew he would not drink rum, 
and he assisted in getting a great many of the wounded 
into boats and thus preserved their lives. At one time he 
undertook to pilot a band of slaves to the North, but the 
scheme was discovered. Isaac C, however, was enabled 
to escape. In the winter of 1844 he came by boat from 
New Orleans to Pittsburg, put his clothing in a bag and 
walked over the mountains all the way to Chester Co., Pa., 
to visit his grandmother, Lydia Marsh. During this trip 
he saved a train of passenger cars between Harrisburg and 
Lancaster from being wrecked. He finally settled in Cal- 
houn Co., Mich., where he now (1897) resides on a 450 acre 
farm. P. O., Battle Creek, Mich.

Rich Square, Henry Co., Ind., to Mary A., dau. of Abel 
and Eliza A. Wickershara. Mary A. b. at Rich Square, 
Henry Co., Ind., 4-24-1841. James H. followed teaching 
for a number of years in Chicago. He was a life-long 
member of the Society of Friends. He was one of the 
not inconsiderable number of young "Friends" who felt 
it to be their duty to go to the assistance of their country 
in its peril, and resigning his school, he enlisted in the 
army during the late Civil War. He passed unharmed 
through two of the severe battles of the war — Antietam 
and Chancellorsville. After the expiration of his term of 
enlistment, and three months service in the State's defence 
in 1863, he again engaged in teaching; but resigned in 
1864, to engage in a kind of work now almost forgotten. 
The government having come into possession of many 
plantations deserted by their owners, wished to lease them 
to loyal men, who would employ and care for the negro 
occupants. He took charge of one of these plantations, 
under the direction of the "Freedmen's Bureau," not far 
from Helena, Arkansas, and engaged in raising cotton. 
This proved to be a semi-military sort of life, for he and 
his men were obliged to defend themselves from time to 
time, in a small stockade fort, against roving bands of 
guerrillas. Successful defense was not always possible, 
and on one occasion he saw through the thick foliage of 
a tree, into which he had climbed, a small army march 
away with his mules and "contrabands," as the colored

people were then called. Most of the latter straggled back 
in a fortnight and the Government replaced the mules. At 
another time, he was himself captured by a band of out- 
laws, from whom, after two or three weeks, he escaped 
while they were asleep. These interruptions, and the 
very wet season of 1865, made the enterprise unprofitable, 
and the malaria of that country undermined his health.

He learned the trade of blacks mi thing with his father, 
with whom he remained until eighteen years of age. 
Being endowed with more than ordinary mechanical abil- 
ity, he apprenticed himself to a machinist in Rock Island.

charge of the shops as superintendent. In 1864 he became 
associated with the great plow factory of *' Deere and Com- 
pany," with which he has been identified ever since. He 
is one of the directors of the company, and served for 
some time as one of its vice-presidents. He is really a 
moving spirit in this great company. Improvements in 
existing agricultural implements have also been made by 
him. The scope of his genius extends beyond the inven- 
tion of plows and cultivators, and he has given to the 
world engine improvements of all descriptions. He is a 
thorough worker and applies himself closely to his busi- 
ness. Politically, Gilpin is a Republican. He has found 
time to travel. Has been in every state in the Union ex- 
cept Maine and Oregon, and has spent some time in various 
European countries. Gilpin's home is one of the hand- 
somest in Rock Island, 111.

and electrical engineer. Has resided at Brownsville, Pa., 
Oberlin and Cleveland, C, and Chicago, 111. The follow- 
ing is taken from the "Electrical World" of ]March 25, 
1893: "On February 14, 1876, Elisha Gray filed at Wash- 
ington a caveat for 'Art of Transmitting Vocal Sounds 
Telegraphically.' This was the earliest application of the 
kind in the world, and reads thus: 'It is the object of my 
invention to transmit the tones of the human voice through 
a telegraphic circuit and reproduce them at the receiving 
end of the line so that actual conversation can be carried 
on by persons at a long distance apart' One of Prof. 
Gray's contemporaneous workers was Prof. A. Graham 
Bell, the latter of whom, though probably anticipated in 
point of time by the caveat of Gray, was granted a broad 
patent for speaking telephone on March 8, 1876, only 
twenty-three days later than the date of Prof. Gray's 
caveat. As to who was entitled to the credit of the inven- 
tion of the telephone it has required almost constant liti- 
gation in the courts for the past sixteen or seventeen 
years to decide, and although it has been awarded to Bell, 
there are many dissenters from the justice of this decision. 
Prof. Gray is also the inventor of the telautograph. 
Prof. Gray is universally esteemed, both as a man and as 
a scientist, and the confidence reposed in him by the pro- 
fession has found manifestation in various ways, not the 
least of which was his election to the arduous post and re- 
sponsibilities of Chairman of the Committee on the Elec- 
trical Congress of the World's Columbian Auxiliary. In 
this last position with which he has been honored, he has 
been thrown into many trying situations which would 
have discouraged and upset a less well-balanced person, 
but which he has surmounted with dignity, and to the 
credit of himself and the trust so wisely reposed in him. 
In manners he is affable and genial, inviting approach, 
and manifests his Quaker origin, which is not disguised 
in his personal appearance, by a proneriess to interchange 
of confidence, which, so delightful to meet with, has not 
always worked to its possessor's advantage." P. 0., 
Highland Park, Lake Co., 111.

2048. Charles C, b. 6-10-1835. Unm, When nine- 
teen years of age (April, 1854) he went to visit some rela- 
tives at Pekin, 111., and joined a party of six who were 
going across the plains to California'. Near the Big Blue 
river they were attacked by Pawnee Indians, who captured 
their teams; then, carrying their own baggage, they walked 
to Ft. Laramie, only three reaching there, and almost 
famished. The other four had become the victims of the 
Indian's scalpiug-knife. At Ft. Laramie, two of the com- 
panions failing to induce Charles C. to enter with them 
into the U. S. army, he set out alone, on foot, with a 
Colt's revolver as the only weapon of defence. At Salt 
Lake City he tarried ten days to rest and recuperate, and 
then started on his perilous journey of some 1,400 miles, 
along which latter distance he subsisted upon roots, game 
and fish. The principal want was water; there was plenty 
along the trail, but it was alkali. Finally, after being two 
days without water, he lay down along the banks of the 
Bear river, completely exhausted, and slept. He dreamed 
he was standing on the banks of a river, and, as he stooped 
to quench his thirst, the waters receded from him. When 
at daybreak he awoke, he heard the trickling of a little 
mountain stream, which his dull senses had failed to dis-

cover the night before. He drank freely of it, and felt re- 
freshed and strengthened. Resuming his journey, he 
crossed the great American Desert and the snow-capped 
Sierras, reaching California in the month of September, 
barefoot and rasrsed. Arriving in San Francisco, and dis- 
appointed at not meeting his brother, who had taken pas- 
sage on a vessel to Australia, he, nothing daunted, set 
resolutely to work to carve out his own fortune, and soon 
won the respect of those around him. He is now living in 
Nevada. P. O., Eureka, White Pine Co., Nevada, and

beautiful tribute is paid to her memory by Rev. John R. 
Davies, D. D. : 



FIFTH GENERATION. 377 

"IX .MKMORIAM. 

"Upon the morning of Feb. 3, our community was 
deeply grieved to learn that Mrs. Emma Wallace ]McCoy, 
wife of General Robert A. ZvIcCoy, after a long and weary 
illness, was no more, and while in all the notices of her de- 
cease given in the press her wish to avoid publicity has 
been most kindly respected, yet after a careful considera- 
tion of all the circumstances in the case, those who knew 
Mrs. McCoy the best and loved her the most feel that some 
fuller mention ought to be made of the departure from our 
midst of one who, by her rare and rich personality, attracted 
to herself such a large circle of admiring and devoted 
friends. 

" No one of any intelligence could be in the company of 
Mrs. McCoy without realizing that she was a woman of 
unusual intellectual power. She had read widely and well, 
so that she was not only conversant with many of the clas- 
sics that the past has preserved for us, but also with the 
current literature, so that she was qualified to discuss the 
questions of the day and grasp at once the salient points, 
and with clearness and precision present in a few words 
the correct status of each subject. 

"And united to such intellectual power was a sympathy 
just as wide in its range and remarkable in its character. 
Nothing that was human was alien to her. Indeed, noth- 
ing that God had called into existence was too small or in- 
significant to pass unnoticed. The bud opening upon the 
trees which in summer shaded her threshold, the birds 
which lingered for a moment to peer in at the window, the 
flowers sent by loving hands to brighten her sick chamber, 
the children trooping along to school, the sick and the 
sorrowing within our borders, the friends who sought her 
presence and enjoyed her company, the varied interests of 
the Church of Christ both at home and abroad, to all and 
to everything that came within the range of her keen ob- 
servation, she gave freely of her sympathy expressed in 
practical help, in kindly words, and in a genial sunshine 
which seemed to disperse the gloom and lift the shadows 
of the darkest dav. 



378 ANDREW MOORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

*'Bat the crowning grace of ]Mrs. .nIcCov's life was her 
Christian character. Early in life she professed her faith 
in Christ and her love for Him as her personal Saviour, 
and this love was the great inspiration of her being, urging 
her forward in the fulfillment of important duties in the 
church for which she was so richly qualified, and also sup- 
porting her when, physical health failing, she was com- 
pelled to give up one by one the cherished plans and pur- 
poses of life and patiently wait the good pleasure of her 
Heavenly Father's will. Thus she waited, not in sack- 
cloth and ashes, but adorned with the radiant garments of 
a cheerful resignation which was a perpetual benediction 
to her home and family, and a continual inspiration to 
those who were fortunate enough to be numbered among 
the circle of her friends. But the months sped and the 
seasons came and went, some bringing to anxious hearts 
the promise of returning health, while others appeared 
freighted with dreary forebodings. But all, like the chisel 
of some angelic sculptor, were divinely sent to complete in 
this rare character the image of Christ. At last the end 
came, but not in the way anticipated. Over her home 
there fell the thick dark pall of a terrible sorrow. She 
bowed with quiet resignation to her Father's will and then 
resolved, if possible, to live not for herself, but for others, 
whose lives without her presence would be doubly lone- 
some and bereft. But that marvelous will-power which so 
often in former days had come to her rescue, now fiiiled to 
respond, and the worn and wasted body, deprived of such 
assistance, gradually sank, until with the dawning day, in 
the full peace and comfort of the Gospel, she passed gently 
away to be with her Saviour. Thus, in the calm serenity 
of her Christian life, and in her gentle transition from 
earth to heaven, did she illustrate most beautifully the last 
message of the Scriptures which fell upon her ears: 'I will 
both lay me down in peace and sleep, for thou Lord only 
makest me ro dwell in safety.' 

"This feeble tribute, like some torn and tattered wreath, 
the merest semblance of what it ought to be, at the request 
of a bereaved and sorrowing circle, we modestly and rever-

ently offer to the memory of one whose death has made 
heaven richer, but earth lonelier and poorer." 

Robert A. studied law, and was admitted to the Cambria 
County bar in about iS6o. At the beginning of the late 
Civil War, he raised a company of infantry, and although 
entitled to the captaincy, selected that of 2d lieutenant, 
insisting that men of military experience take the other 
higher offices. This company became Co. A., nth Regt., 
Pennsylvania Reserves, Col. Thomas F. Gallagher com- 
manding. They were connected with the Army of the 
Potomac, and participated in all of its battles from June, 
1861, to 1S64. Lieut. McCoy was among the prisoners 
captured at the battle of Gaines' Mill, Va., and was of the 
first number incarcerated within the walls of Libby Prison 
at Richmond, Va. For gallant and meritorious services, 
he was promoted regularly, from 2d Lieut, to Lieut. Col. 
of his regiment, and in the last year of service was trans- 
ferred to the staff of Gen. S. W. Crawford, Commander of 
the Pennsylvania Reserves, as Adjutant General and In- 
spector General of the Corps — filling both positions at the 
same time. For bravery on the field, he was brevetted 
Brigadier General. Upon being mustered out of the service 
in June, 1S64, he and Genl. Lemuel Todd were appointed 
by Gov. Andrew G. Curtin to organize the militia of the 
State. In 1S65, he became Private Sec'yfor Gov. Curtin, 
which position he held until the close of his administration. 
From 1S67 to 1S74, he was Chief Clerk in the Land De- 
partment of Pennsylvania, when he was tendered and 
accepted the position of cashier of the Blair County Bank- 
ing Company, of Tyrone, Pa., a position he held until his 
death. A near friend of Gen. ]\IcCoy's writes as follows : 
"Gen. Robert A. McCoy was a perfect gentleman, a fas- 
cinating conversationalist, a brave soldier; a man brim- 
ming over with kindly good will for all who needed it."

Geo. S. Chambers, pastor of the Perm St. Presbyterian 
Church, Harrisburg, Pa., in his address at her funeral 
obsequies paid a glowing tribute to her heroism, usefulness 
and spirituality, and read the following extract from one 
of her letters, written a few months prior to her death : 
"It would, indeed, be glorious to have this sick body made 
well and strong again, and escape the painful death that 
must be mine ; ^ * * * Yet I should not speak of a pain- 
ful death, for I have had the strong conviction that God 
will take me to Himself before the pain becomes unendur- 
able, if it is not His will to cure me. * * * * It is cow- 
ardly to run away from what God may have for us to do ; 
therefore, I have never prayed to go any sooner than He 
wants me to. * * * * Above health and strength, I want 
a consecrated heart." Dr. Chambers then adds : '^These 
are the breathings of a soul that has come into contact 
with Jesus Christ. They indicate a heroism than which 
that which led many a martyr to the stake was not 
greater."

The following touching lines were written by his de- 
voted father, who had been called away, and was absent at 
the time of his son's decease. We insert them, not so 
much for the merit of their poetic symmetry, as for the 
beautiful sentiment and tender affection displayed by the 
sorrow-stricken parent at the untimely demise of one who 
was his cherished hope and future promise: 

Alas ! and is my darling Ellis gone ? 

The child I loved so dear ; 
He whom I fixed my hopes upon 

Has gone and left me here. 

And did he spend his dying breath, 

In calling for his father's home ? 
In hopes that he could treat with death, 

To spare his babe for years to come ? 

! had I heard thy blessed voice, 
Though sick and low I be ; 

1 would have risked the worst of choice, 
And quickly flown to thee. 

Had I but known thou wast in pain, 

And dying, wept my long delay, 
No darksome night, nor torrent rain, 

Could e'er have stopped me on my way. 

But alas ! these tidings were denied, 

Thy father's wish and great desire ; 
As though the ills of earth had tried 

Against my feelings to conspire. 

For had I been with my blest bov. 

To have reconciled his manly mind, 
It would have been the greatest joy 

That e'er was felt by human kind. 

But since stem fate has thus decreed. 

It is sheer weakness to complain ; 
For though it caused my heart to bleed, 

It is for thy eternal gain. 

One only solace calms my heart, 
That is, that thou art blest ; 



SIXTH GENERATION. 391 

Though we were doomed so soon to part, 
Thou wast as soon at rest. 

Thy sweet black eyes are full of joy, 

Thy manly heart of flowing brim ; 
With heavenly bliss without alloy. 

For God has taken thee to Him. 

And had I thy virtues, O! my son. 

Or was I from every sin so free ; 
I'd gladly wish my race were run, 

And I in heaven at rest with thee.

of James and Ann (Taylor) Woodrow. Harriet H. b. 
6-6-1S37, in Little Britain Twp. , Lane. Co., Pa. 

John A. M.'s bo}hood was spent on a rugged Octoraro 
farm in his native township. A portion of his time was 
occupied in assisting in the mining of chrome ore. De- 
prived in early life of a father's fostering care, his educa- 
tion and training devolved on his mother, a woman of 
rare energy and judgment. At sixteen he began teaching 
school, and at once showed such aptitude in this profes- 
sion that he was induced to take a four years' course 
(scientific) at the Pennsylvania State Normal School at 
Millersville, then under the principalship of one of Amer- 
ica's greatest educators, Dr. James P. Wickersham. He 
graduated in 1S60. He at once removed to Pottsville, 
Pennsylvania, where he taught successfully for a number 
of years. During his residence in Pottsville he was for 
many years a member of the Board of Education, and for 
eight years its President. 

In 1877 he was nominated by the Republican State 
Convention of Pennsylvania for Auditor-General, over 
Hon. Howard J. Reeder, by a vote of over two to one, but 
the entire ticket was defeated by apathy in the party and 
treachery on the part of some of its leaders. He was again 
a candidate in 18S0, but was betrayed by professing friends. 
After the disastrous campaign of 1882, he was urged to be 
a candidate for State Treasurer, but refusing to accede to 
the demands and promises required of him, he was not 
nominated. In 1S90 his friends, thinking the party had 
done him an injustice, brought him forward as a candidate 
for Lieutenant Governor; his candidacy was endorsed by 
hundreds of the leading men of Philadelphia and of the 
entire state, and he had a majority of the delegates to the 
convention pledged to him; but finding orders had been 
given by the " Boss" to slaughter him, he had his name 
withdrawn from the couvention. 

The estimation in which he was held by his fellow citi- 
zens, after a residence of twenty-six years in Pottsville, 
Pennsylvania, is best attested by the following, taken 
from the "Miners' Journal," on the occasion of his re-

moval to Philadelphia: "Few men have lived a life more 
useful to his fellow-citizens during his residence of more 
than twenty-five years amongst us. . With much warmth 
of feeling, Mr. Passmore has united great strength of will; 
he has filled many posts of trust and occupied various posi- 
tions of importance in the charitable, educational, polit- 
ical and business life of Pottsville; indeed, it may be justly 
said of him that no man more entirely devoted his energies 
to forward whatever work he undertook to perform. It 
was mainly to him that the *'Home" of the Pottsville 
Benevolent Association is indebted for its existence and 
usefulness. In the public schools he introduced with suc- 
cess, in the face of discouragement and opposition, the co- 
education of the sexes, which is now established in this 
community. His opinions are decided, and his expression 
of them outspoken. As a friend and neighbor, he has left 
a proud record. He will bear with him to his new home, 
the kind wishes and affectionate remembrance of many 
friends." 

He is an ardent, aggressive Republican, but aspires to 
no public office. He is an active, live worker, and de- 
votes much of his time in striving to benefit mankind. 
His greatest interest is centered in educational matters, 
neglected children and the insane. 

He served three years as a trustee of the State Normal 
School at Millersville, Pennsylvania ; six years he was a 
trustee on behalf of the State, of the State Normal School 
at Kutztown, Pennsylvania, and is now (1897) a trustee, 
by appointment of Governor Daniel H. Hastings, of the 
Asylum for the Chronic Insane, at Wernersville, Penn- 
sylvania. 

He is a devoted Pennsylvanian, believing most im- 
plicitly in his State; and an uncompromising American. 
He was during the late Civil War, a member of Company 
A, 27th Regiment, Pennsylvania State Militia, in the ser- 
vice of the United States, and was honorably discharged 
by reason of expiration of term of service. 

He is bold and aggressive in his advocacy of what he 
believes to be right.

Having relinquished teaching, he engaged in the life 
insurance business. Then he became the general manager 
in Pennsylvania for D. Appleton &. Company, publishers, 
N. Y., and when that £rui disposed of its interests to the 
American Book Company, he united his fortunes with it, 
and is (1897) their representative in Philadelphia. 

He moved to Philadelphia in 18S6, and during his first 
week's residence in this city, was elected a member of the 
Board of Directors of " Friends' Home for Children,'' a 
position he still holds with credit to himself and profit to 
the institution. 

He is a life member of the Historical Society of Penn- 
sylvania, State Teachers' Association, the Association of 
Friends' Home for Children, a Past Master and life mem- 
ber of the A. Y. M., a member of the Genealogical Soci- 
ety of Pa,, member of the Royal Chapter and Knights 
Templar, Past Grand of the I. O. of O. F., and member 
of the Grand Lodge, a Past Chancellor of the K. of P., 
Past President of Camp 36, P. O. S. of A., member of the 
Teachers' National Educational Association, a member of 
the Good Intent Fire Company of Pottsville, Pennsyl- 
vania, member of Gen. George G. ]\Ieade Post i, G. A. R. , 
and also an active member of the Union League of Phila- 
delphia. He was very frequently chosen as a representa- 
tive of his party in Schuylkill county as delegate to 
Republican state conventions, was a delegate to the Re- 
publican National Convention at Chicago, in 1884, that 
nominated Hon, James G. Blaine for the Presidency. 

He was for many years a local representative of the 
Board of Public Charities of Pennsylvania in Schuylkill 
county, and a member of the Board of Visitors on Lunacy. 
He did a most praiseworthy work, having accomplished 
or put in the way of being accomplished, very much to 
make the condition of the pauper insane more tolerable. 

In 1866 he was admitted to the Schuylkill County Bar, 
and has also been admitted to practice in the Supreme 
Court of Pennsylvania, but he preferred a more active life 
than that of the law. 

Reared as a ''Friend," his religious convictions are

very stroiin^ly in sympathy with the tenets of the "Society 
of Friends." In early life, with his family, he removed 
into a cominnnity where there was no meeting of this 
society, and believing that every one should connect him- 
self with some religious denomination, after mature de- 
liberation, with his family he united with the Protestant 
Episcopal Church. 

Mr. Passmore is a princely generous man. He is opti- 
mistic and cheerful in disposition, devoted to his family 
and friends, and has the happy faculty of making and re- 
taining a large circle of warmly devoted friends. He has 
been a benefaction to hundreds of young people, and has 
carried sunshine and renewed courage to thousands. He 
is as widely known and as sincerely loved as anv man in 
Pennsylvania. He has always been considerate of others, 
and has not failed to seek the place of suffering to himself 
if thereby he could make a place of gladness and strength 
for others. 

In his business he is methodic, polite and sagacious. 
His word is implicitly relied upon, and his courteous treat- 
ment of his business associates and customers has always 
intensified the love and gratitude he so justly merits. 

He is a man of conscience and deep religious fervor. 
His faith is abiding and constant. He finds in the church 
and family the avenues of deep religious culture, and his 
philanthropy is a benediction to many young people. 

It would be unfair to him did I not state that to me the 
sacredly sweet spirit of his home life touches my heart 
with gratefulness and my life with gladness. As husband 
and father he has held close to his heart the devotion and 
love of a noble wife and equally noble children. These 
forces in his life have made him a model man. His heart 
always longs for home, and the pure life of the family 
circle has made his own life sweeter, purer, nobler and 
stronger than my pen can report. To be a friend of Mr. 
Passmore means to be treated in the spirit of loving kin- 
ship. The hallowed associations of home to him always 
recall the broken circle, the memory of a loving mother, 
whose closing months were made serenely glad and peace-

fully sweet by the devoted care of her son. Next to the 
hope that he may sit by her side, to^^vether with all his 
loved ones, in the land eternal, is the hope that mv mem- 
ory may never lose the picture of my dear friend, John A. 
M. Passmore, sitting in the evening hour in his own home, 
surrounded by his wife and children, reading to his aged 
mother the message her eyes could no longer scan, but 
which her heart hopefully fed upon, the message of' God 
and immortality from the Holy Bible.
