Allen Moore 1776 – 1837 | his parents
& [Nancy] Ann Warren 1776 – 1844 | her parents
of Murfreesboro, Hertford Co, NC


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


Allen Moore and [Nancy] Ann Warren were married 13 Sept 1798.

Allen Moore was born 10 March 1776 and died 18 December 1837 in Murfeesboro, NC.
Allen Moore was the brother of John Moore, who was the father of Mrs. A W Darden.

[Nancy] Ann Warren was born 10 August 1776 the daughter of Ethelred Warren [16 Jan 1749 – 30 Oct 1807] and Margaret Riddick Darden [25 Feb 1760 -12 May 1834]. Her parents had married 12 Oct 1775. Nancy Warren Moore died in Murfeesboro on 10 Jan 1844.

Moore in his Historical Sketches of Hertford County written for pub. 1 Nov 1877: “John P Bridger was at this time [1848] the sheriff of Hertford County. Though a democrat he had succeeded in defeating Albert Moore, a Whig for that office. Mr. Moore lived in Manney’s Neck and was the son of Allen Moore, who left so many stalwart and useful sons in our midst. Alas! the venerable Samuel Moore of Buckhorn alone survives. Allen Moore’s brother John lived near Murfreesboro and was the father of Mrs. A W Darden of Elm Grove as most useful and estimable lady who with her aged husband are yet among the few spared monuments of a better day. They were long in their service to the cause of education in our midst; but of latter years the Elm Grove Academy has lost no reputation under the management of their children.”
