Birth: Jan. 11, 1763
Hanover County
Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 19, 1839
Effingham County
Illinois, USA

Charles Moore enlisted in the Continental Army from Rowan County, North Carolina and served from 1775 through 1780. He was in the Battle of King's Mountain. Charles came to Illinois and settled in Sangamon County and later moved to McLean County. He died on September 19, 1839 as a result of a stagecoach accident which caused his death. He was traveling through Effingham County on his way to draw a pension. There is some doubt that Ewington is his final resting place. Some argue he is buried in Woodgruff County although a stone marker was placed in the Ewington Cemetery.
