Birth: Feb., 1788
Maryland, USA
Death: Mar. 20, 1873
Harrison County
Ohio, USA

According to "Biographical Review of Cass, Schuyler and Brown Counties, Illinois", in a biography of his son Alexander(3), Alexander(2) is said to have "been one of eight children, and learned the millwright and carpenter trade, but followed farming principally, and ran a horse-power mill for many years. He and his parents took up land in Ohio, that was wild and unimproved, and here he lived in a log cabin all his days..." "[his] father was Alexander Moore, who married, and spent his last days in Ohio, dying when full of years." " [He] was a Justice of the Peace ... and filled the different township offices ... He helped to build the first church in that part of Ohio, a Methodist house of worship, and his family were members of it to the close of their lives." This same bio gives Alexander's wife's name as Sarah Smith.
