Moor Bagley is said to have been the first white man to come through King's Gap on the Indian trail above Hamilton, GA. He stayed a few years in Harris County, then came into Muscogee where the first record of land bought by him is dated Dec 24, 1836 (lot No. 253, in 9th district). He was a cooper by trade, made buckets, piggins, tubs, etc. From Jasper county Moor was drawn for service in War of 1812. The records in Washington show that he served as a corporal in Capt. Samuel Lane's Company of Riflemen, 4th regiment (Jones) Georgia Militia from November 21, 1814 to May 6, 1815--during his absence his wife Jane Graves and children came to her father's, John Jack Graves,Sr.,place in Fayette county. When he returned, he was again drawn from Fayette. Moor and Jane joined the Mt. Olive Primative Baptist Church in 1839. There are 2 of his children not listed below: Jessie Minton Bagley(1826-1872); and Barthenia "Theny" Bagley(1832-1919). Moor was an only child of Robert Bagley(1757-1787) and Mary Moor(1761-1787). Both parents died the same yr. Robert was only 30 yrs old and Mary was only 26 yrs old. Typhoid , Measles and other diseases were very prominent back then, maybe that is what killed them both at the same time, because with both gone, it left Moor an orphan at age 4. It's possible that his grandparents, Wm and Mildred Bagley took him and raised him. We have very little information on them. Moor's life is written about in The History of Chattahoochee, County Ga. written by N.K. Rogers. A number of his children moved to Alabama and Texas. Moor took a second wife 3 yrs before he died. He married Mrs. Mary Williams (--1917),Jan 3, 1869.
