The Moore's of SW Virginia

~ My Confederate Ancestors ~



The following is from a letter sent to me by John B. Wells III, former East Kentucky Brigade Commander & former Genealogist In Chief - Sons of Confederate Veterans.



Dear Champ
August 14, 1998

I've been doing a bit more research on the Moore family and am told that Enoch Moore had at least one brother named Elisha Moore. Elisha Moore was born in 1800-1808 in Virginia and is thought to be the brother of Enoch Moore who was born in 1802 in Virginia. Elisha Moore had several sons who served in the Confederate Army:





WILLIAM MOORE


born c.1836 in Russell County, Va., enlisted on 04 /25/1861 at Glade Springs, Va., for a 12 months term as a private in Co.F of the 37th Virginia Infantry, C.S.A. He was discharged for unknown reasons in 09/1861.
He re-enlisted on 07/07/1862 in Co.A of the 2nd Regiment of the Virginia State Line, but was discharged on an unknown date for unknown reasons.
Finally, he re-enlisted on 05/01/1863 in Russell County, Va., as a private in Co.D of the 22nd Virginia Cavalry, CSA. He was listed as present on the last surviving muster roll of his company dated 10/31/1863. No further record of his service survives.
