    • Revolutionary Patriot

      The identity of Alexander Moore is hard to pin down. He's sometimes called Alick, or Elick. Some people think there are references to him as William as well. Could be he was known by both names, or that there were two (or more) people with the names William and Alexander Moore. This makes him hard to place.

      DEED: Deed Book 1 - p. 60 - 4 Aug 1789 - Indenture - Alexander Moore,Washington Co., N.C. and William Black, Greene Co., NC, 200 pounds pd,400 acres on Meadow Creek & adj Samuel Sherrel. Wit: George Gillaspie, Thomas Gillaspie

      DEED: Deed Book 1 - p. 61 - 4 Aug 1789 - Indenture - William Moore,Washington Co., NC and Robert Allison, 100 pounds pd, tr on E side dryfork of Meadow Creek and adj Benjamin Crow, being 300 acres granted Moore, No. 544, 20 Sep 1787. Wit: Richard Wood, George Gillaspie.Reg. 15 Sep 1789

      NOTE: The above two deeds recorded from Washington Co and Greene Co NC date from the time before the establishment of Tennessee. Hence,their being located in NC. Moreover, there has been some controversy over the identity of Alexander / William Moore. I believe that the fact that two deeds registered on the same day showing different names for William and Alexander show that these two are different people.,probably brother rather than father and son, as some have suggested.
