Birth: Jun. 13, 1775
Augusta County
Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 12, 1821

John Moffett was born 13 Jun 1775 and died 12 April 1821. He married Sarah Hays (6 Sep 1774 - 6 Jun 1859) on 9 Jan 1799 and had many children:

Samuel 15 Sep 1799
John (III) 23 Jul 1801 - 25 Jun 1834 (OH)
Hays 17 Nov 1803 - 17 Mar 1877
William 30 Aug 1806 - bef 13 Sep 1838 (IL)
James 13 Jul 1809 - 4 Oct 1880 (IL)
Jane Ledgerwood 11 Dec 1811 - 26 Jul 1899
Sarah Brownlee 25 Mar 1814 - 25 Oct 1877 (Mrs. John Brown)
Eleanor Robinson 19 Aug 1816 - 23 Jun 1892

He was the son of John Moffett and Jane Ledgerwood (also buried here) and inherited their homestead. His home was on
"Back Creek" per DB #__, p 269.

According to the 12 Aug 1936 W.P.A. Historical Inventory of this cemetery by Scioto M. Herndon (online at Library of Virginia), there was a gravestone that says:
JOHN MOFFETT
Son of John & Jane
12th day of 1821
Agd. "1821" (obviously a typo on typed report at Lib of VA)

Photo: His name is listed, seventh from the bottom, on the left side of monument installed in the 1980's by Bethel Presbyterian Church. There are other date errors on this marker. It says:
JOHN MOFFETT
1776 - 1821

6/13 I confirmed he does not have an existing marker or one that is readable with a local photo volunteer, WLC.
