Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 28, 1799
Newberry County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1873
Perry County
Alabama, USA

Called Wagon Maker Billy Moore.
Second of seven children.
Moved to Perry County, Alabama, in 1821.
Married Sarah Tubb on August 12, 1821.
(William's tombstone says he married March 10, 1821. The August marriage date appears at least twice in the 1961 Moore family genealogy study; the second of these citations references County Records Book D-6, page 14. It also appears in the Alabama Marriage Collection, 1800-1969, indicating marriage was performed by Justice of the Peace William Reed.)

Siblings:
Nancy Agnes Sloan (Sep 15,1796 - ? )
Janet/Jane Moore (Nov 9,1801 - Nov 1,1823)
Rosey/Rosannah Moore (Jun 5,1804 - ? )
James S. Moore (May 13,1808 - ? )
Fergus McClelland Moore (Feb 13,1811 - ? )
Margaret Bowers (Nov 29,1812 - Oct 16,1860)

From "The Commonwealth", Marion, Alabama, Jan 16, 1873:
Died at his residence in West Perry on the 9th instant, Mr. William Moore, aged 74 years. Mr. Moore was one of the first settlers of Perry County, having emigrated from Newberry District, South Carolina, fifty-fwo years ago.
He amassed a considerable fortune, raised a large family, lived honored and beloved by all and died at a ripe old age. Thus one by one the venerable landmarks of the past are removed and the places that once knew them, now know them no more.
