      William Moore tested 67 markers and descends from Edward Moore [1728-1803]. Edward married Martha Thompson in Salem, NJ in 1746 and can be found on Deep River in upper Moore County, NC by 1771. He and Martha had at least ten children including Susan, Sarah, Mary, William, Elizabeth, John, Thomas, Martha, Joanna and Edward Jr. His sons William and Edward Jr. [William's ancestor] migrated to Orange County, IN and Parke County, IN and daughter Joanna [and husband David Kennedy] migrated to Lauderdale County, AL. William's Y-DNA matches several descendants of Edward as well as other Moores who trace their ancestry to NC and TN. Additional research is needed to determine the connections between these families. He also matches someone who descends from Israel Moore [b. 1785 NJ] likely confirming the Moore family research documenting Edward Moore Sr. as originally being from NJ.

      Patricia Moore, a descendant of Joseph G. Moore [1795-1855 Lee County, MS], had her son tested to gain a better understanding of her husband's Moore line. Joseph lived in Moore County, NC during the 1820s-early 1840s, married Sarah Dowd and migrated to Itawamba County, MS by 1850. His Y-DNA matches many Moores around the country who trace their ancestry back to Moore families in VA, MD, PA as well as Ireland and Scotland. It is unclear how Joseph G. Moore connects with these families, but it is clear they hold a common male ancestor.

      Separately, Matt Moore descends from Gideon Moore [1770/1775-aft 1840]. Gideon lived in upper Moore County near the Randolph County border. Ernest Eugene Moore descends from Elias Moore [b. 1820] of Moore County, NC who migrated to Lauderdale County, AL during the late 1860's. Matt and Ernest match several Moore males around the country including Parker Moore, a descendant of Emsley Moore [1827-1913] of Chatham County, NC and D.T. Moore and Bryan Moore, descendants of Dempsey Moore [1789 NC-1856 McNairy County, TN]through son Jesse Moore [1827 Randolph County, NC-1863 Hot Spring County, AR], suggesting a close relationship between Gideon, Elias, Emsley and Dempsey as well as confirming that these Moore families of Moore, Chatham and Randolph counties share a common male ancestor. They do not match the Y-DNA of the descendants of Edward Moore or Joseph G. Moore. No connection has been made at this point between the different Moore families.
