[S030] lists three other children (Virginia, Dorphan, Joseph) who do not appear on census enumerations; they may have lived only a short time.

(1996) In 1828 Mary Wood of Bath County married her first cousin from Botetourt County, John Wood Moore; they were both grandchildren of Joseph and Mary Wood [R002] through, respectively, Edward [R003] and Martha [R260]. By 1830 Wood and Mary had moved to a tract of land in the Randolph County “Wedge Lot” given them by Mary’s father Edward [R003]; they appear in the 1830 census of Randolph County, next to the household of Joseph Moore. They lived on a portion of tracts M1, M2 of Fig. R361b. The only additional purchase of land by Wood that I know of is 8 acres bought in 1849 from the Edward Wood estate for $16 (DB18-162). In 1851 Wood’s father Thomas Moore [R260] died, leaving one-sixth of his Botetourt County Va. property to Wood and Mary. They sold their interest in the property to Davis Morton Wood [R255] in 1852 (Randolph County DB33-328).

Samuel A. and Thomas M. Moore, together with their cousin James A. Moore [R375], enlisted on 4/30/1863 as Privates in Company I of the 19th Virginia Cavalry. The National Archives records [S088] say little about their Civil War careers. They were paroled in Charleston W.V. 5/11/1865. Their parole slips describe Samuel as age 31, height 5’ 4”, light complexion, blue eyes, light hair, light whiskers; Thomas was age 30, height 5’ 8”, fair complexion, blue eyes, light hair, light whiskers.

Their brother John D. Moore enlisted 5/24/1861 in Company F of the 31st Virginia Infantry, in Huttonsville. He died 1/7/1862 of disease in a hospital [S075].
