From "The History of Ritchie County" by Minnie Kendall Lowther:
The Moatses--Near the year 1819, George Moats and his wife, Eve, with their family, came from Pendleton County [VA] and took up their residence on the land that is now marked by the west end of Harrisville. They were the grandparents of Andrew Moats, of Harrisville, and the ancestors of all the families of this name in the county, they being the parents of twelve children. Mrs. Moats was a native of North Carolina, and both were of German descent. They gave the gounds for the first Baptist Church in the Harrisville vicinity, and near the site of this old church, which stood just north of the present residence of Mrs. Wm. M. Rymer, Mr. Moats met a tragic death, in 1844, by the falling of a tree, under which he had sought shelter from a storm. He was buried almost on the site where he was killed, but sixty years after, his ashes were removed to the cemetery on the hill south of town. Mrs. Moats rests in the Indain Creek Baptist churchyard. Their sons were: Peter, Jacob, Henry and William; and their daughters, Christiana, Barbara, Magdalene, Kathrine, Elizabeth, Frances, Susan and Julia Moats, whose descendants are now a host among the good citizens of the county. These children in their turn were nearly all the heads of pioneer families.
