    In 1771, on October 7, William, the first son of Rodeham and Elizabeth Moore was born
    in western Pittsylvania County, Virginia. He married Jane Hanby, daughter of Capt.
    Jonathan Hanby and Sarah Matilda Dalton, in 1798. They lived on land in Patrick County
    that he purchased from his father . He and his wife, Jane, had ten children when she died in
    1817. Their youngest child, a daughter, was still a toddler when her mother died. Two
    years later, in 1819, William Moore died. Gallahue Moore seems to have assumed the
    lion’s share of care for the young orphans. When other brothers and sisters went west to
    Hawkins County, Gallahue Moore remained east, joining the rest of the family in Hawkins
    County after 1830.



    When William Moore (son of Rodeham MOORE) died on May 31, 1819, his brother
    Gallahue Moore was living in Hawkins County, Tennessee; but he returned to Surry
    County soon after his brother’s death. Gallahue Moore for Surry County and William
    Carter for Patrick County, husband of William Moore’s oldest daughter, Elizabeth, were

    appointed Administrators of William Moore’s estate and Guardians to the most of the

    young orphans. Gallahue Moore remained in the area until some time after 1835 by which
    date, all of the children of his brother were grown and the estate had been fully distributed.
    At the end of his long obligation to his nieces and nephews, Gallahue Moore, his wife
    Rhoda Laurance, and several of their young children, returned to Hawkins County,
    Tennessee.



    [NOTE: EVIDENTLY THE LEGISLATURE "DIVIDED" WILLIAM MOORE'S

    ESTATE IN 1819 BECAUSE FOR MUCH OF THE LAND, THERE WAS NO CHAIN
    OF TITLE. THUS THE TWO ADMINISTRATORS HAD THE LAND SURVEYED
    AND DIVIDED LOCALLY, THEN ADOPTED BY THE LEGISLATURES OF
    VIRGINIA AND NORTH CAROLINA.]
