The Historical Journal, edited by
John F. Meginness, Esq., has reached its
fifth number. It is improving with age,
and this issue is an extremely valuable
one. The "Journal of Samuel Maclay,"
is very interesting, as are also several

Sipers, notably that by Dr. Robert
arris Awl, of Northumberland. Mr.
Meginness is to be congratulated.

MOORB8 OF DONKGAL AND HIMP.
FIKJLD.

Ephbaim Moore, the pioneer settler of
this family, located near the "Scott*," in
Donegal township, afterwards Hemp
field, near Big Chickies Creek, in the
year 1722. He had two sons living with
him, and perhaps daughters also, when
he came to Chickies. Both sons were
grown up, and bad attained their ma*
jority prior to 1728. In my article upon
the Agnews and Scotts, I stated that it
was probable that Arthur Patterson and
James Moore came to Donegal about
the same time; this can hardly be
correct. James Moore must have
been in Donegal several years before Mr.
Patterson came. The descendants of the
latter claim that he came as early as
1724. As I cannot find his name upon
any of the assessments of Donegal prior
to 1780. 1 must conclude that he settled
here after that date.
Ephraim Moore's sons were:
I. Jamss Moore, who married Eliza-
beth Scott, sister of Mrs. James Agnew
and Mrs. Arthur Patterson. The first
authentic notice I have of him is his par-
ticipation in Cresap's war. It will be
remembered that Cap. Samuel Smith, of
Donegal, then sheriff, raised a po$$e of
his friends and neighbors numbering
e>bout forty-eight persons, of whom
James Moore was one. They marched
to Cap. Cresap's and after skirmishing



all day and part of the night, set
fire to Cresap's house and took
him and several others prisoners.
He did not survive that war. He died
in 1786, leaving his wife Elizabeth, and
but one child, Ephraim. His father
Ephraim was then living with him. He
left a large farm to his son in Hempfield
township. He must have been a promi-*
nent citizen. Very likely his exposure
among the hills of York county brought
on premature disease, which caused his
early death.

Elizabeth Moore (nee Scott), widow
e% James, died June 4th, 1745. She made
a peculiar will, from which I am enabled
to glean some data of the Sc- tts. She
owned no real estate She divided the
live stock on the farm, and other per-
sonal property among her relatives. She
named her sisters, who were then in
America, and several ot her nieces. She
devised to Elizabeth Patterton, daughter
of her sister Ann, and Arthur Patterson.
These were the ancestors of the Hon.
David Watson Patterson, Judge of the
courts in Lancaster, and of the wife of
the Hon. John Bayard McPherson, Judge
of the Dauphin and Lebanon courts.

To her sister, Sarah Scot? 8 children,
if they come to this country.

To the following named relatives she
gave but one shilling each. They were
all large landholders and well to do fam-
ilies and for that reason they may have
been cut off with a shilling:

To Abraham Lowrey's children. He
married her sister first and secondly
S%rah, daughter of John and Martha
Sterrett To Grace Pedan's children.
She was her sister and married Captain
Hugh Pedan. To Ann Patterson's chil-
dren, wife of Arthur Patterson. To Re-
becca Agnew's children. She mar*,
ried James Agnew as before stated.
To Jean Wilson's children (aster).
To Abraham Scott's children (brother).
To Joeiah Scott's children (a brother)
and to Samuel Ssott (a brother) and chil-
dren. This Samuel Scott died in 1777,
and left no children. If he had any at
the time of Mrs. Moore's decease, they
must have died in their minority.

The witnesses to Mrs. Moore's will
were:

Alexander Johnson, who married a

sister or John Scott's, who died in 174a
Ho was the pioneer settler of the name in
Donegal. In 1727 some of the neighbors
who claimed to own the land upon which
his cabin was built, razed his house to the
ground, and turned his family out without
shelter. (See Dr. Jtgle'i Hittory of
Pennsylvania, page 820 ) This was one
of the results growing out of the refusal
of the early settlers in Donegal to take
out patents for their land. The Penns
refused to allow their Surveyor General
to survey any land before proper applica-
tion was made for a warrant of surrey.

Thomas Scott, brother of the abovfe

John I'oott. These Scott brothers
must have been relatives ot Mrs. Moore,
and, perhaps, members ot her family.
She named so many of her relatives in
her will, and lor that reason, perhaps,
selected others for witnesses. She must
have had some motive in giving so many
ot her relatives but a shilling. What*
ever it was, it shows a strong will, and
much character.

My impression is that Thomas 8cott,
removed to the Valley of Virginia, and
frome thence to Washington county, Pa.

Ephbaim Moore, son of James, and
grandson of Ephraim Moore, married
his first cousin. Elenor, daughter of
Arthur and Ann Patterson. They resided
upon the old homestead in flempfleld*
He accumulated several large tracts of
land up the Susquehanna, the exact
locality of which I am unable to ascer-
tain, as he directed it to be sold. He
died in December, 1776, leaving his wife
Elenor, and children as follows:

i. Anna; to whom he gave £110

ii. Elisabeth; to whom he gave £110.

iii. James; to whom he gave £900.

iv. Arthur; to whom he gave £200.

v. Samuel; to whom he gave £900.

vi. Ephraim; to whom he gave £200.

vii WUUam; the youngest son, he gave
£200.

There was a posthumous child, the
name of which I do not know. He di-
rected his mansion farm to be sold as soon
as his son William became ot are. His
lands up the Susquehanna were to be sold
soon after his death. His brothers-in-
law, James Patterson and Samuel Patter-
son (sons of Arthur Patterson) were his
executors. The witnesses to the, will



were Alexander Scott, Samuel Patterson
and Samuel Rankin.

This branch of the Moore family seems
to have removed from Lancaster county
after they sold their lands, and I am sorry
to say that I cannot now find any traca
of them.

II. Zachartah Moorb, son of Eph-
raim. purchased a farm in Donegal town-
ship adjoining the church Glebe land, and
bow adjoining Genera] Simon Gameron's-
farm on the west. He died in 1760.
Mary Moore and Ephraim Moore were
his Administrators. Robert Fulton
(father of the inventor) and James Oarr
were bail. He left sons:

i. Hugh; who was then over fourteen
years of age, and came into court April*
11th, 1768, and asked to have Samuel-
Scott appointed his Guardian.

ii. Zaehariah; was under fourteen
years of age. Samuel Scott was ap-
pointed his guardian.

Hugh Moore died in July, 1786, ltavs
ing a wife Anney and the following chit*
dren:

i. Honey*

%%. Mary.

iii. Bebeeea.

iv. Andrew; to whom he gave his real
estate. He was declared a lunatic His
brother Zaehariah Moore and his wife-
Anney and James Willson he named aa
executors.

Anna Moore, widow of Hugh Moore,
died in 1798 and named in her will;

i Anna.

it Mary.

iii. Bebeeea.

Zaehariah Moore, her brother, and>
James Willson were her extcutors. At
the March term of court, 1794, Samuel
Cook, Esq , and John Mitchell, Esq.,
were appointed guardians over the estate
of Mary Moore, Rebecca Moore, and An-
drew Moore, minor children of Hugh-
Moore. It is probable that either Samuel
Cook or John Mitchell married Anna,
the oldest daughter of Hugh Moore.
Col. Bertram Galbraith and his wife Ann,
daughter ot Josiah Scott, held five hun-
dred and forty- two acres of land in trust
tor the children of Hugh Moore.

ander Boggs, who married Aon Alricks,
daughter of Hermanns Alricks, prothono-
tary of Cumberland county in 1750.
Zack Moore and his father were carpen*
ters. The former and his ancle, Cap-
tain Hugh Pedan, made the first rad-
ical change in old Donegal church in
1772. A door was cut through the walls
at each end of the building, and the win-
dows were changed from a circular to a
square head, with larger panes of glass.
Zack Moore also put a new shingle roof on
the church in 1790. He was second lieu*
tenant in Captain Robert Craig's company
ic CoL Alex Lowrey's Battalion in 1777,
and was in the battle of Brandy wine. He
died Jane 19, 1803, aged 54 years, leaving
awifeJfory and the following named
children:

i. Bphraim, who accepted his father's
farm, containing two hundred and sev-
enty-two acres, at the appraisement.

it Ann; who married Captain John
Pedan, son of Capt. Hugh Pedan, John
Pedan entered very largely into specula-
tion at Marietta in 1812, and lost a very
large estate when the crash came. One
or more of his sons moved to Ohio.

SL Mary.

iv. Zaehariah.

v. Andrew.

vL Alexander.

vii. Jane, married George B. Feriee,
who kept tavern and stoie in May town.
He became greatly involved through his
love for the "turf" and lost a large for-
tune. He moved to Mobile, thence to
»t Louis and Cincinnati, and to Carlisle,
where he kept hotel, and died some years
ago. His widow died only two or three
years ago in Marietta.

Mrs. Moore (nee Boggs) came from a
remarkably long-lived family, and came
to a great age. She died upon her s »n's
farm at Donegal, February 15, 1847, aged
89 years.

1 remember Mrs. Moore very distinctly
having on several occasions visited the
family with my grandmother, who was
a half sister of Mrs. Alex. Boggs. Two
of the Pedan boys were school mates of
mine, although a few years my senior,
under the tuition of Mr. Rankin and Rev.
Bimpson in Marietta. John Pedan was a
very tall young man, and remarkably ac-
tive. Both he. and the late James Brice



Clark were over six feet in height before
they attained their majority. Pedan fre-
quently stood upon the ground and kicked
the hat off Mr. Clark's head, and could
turn a back or forward somersault . These
feats the boys regarded as extraordinary.

nia troops, from the fact that with the ex-
ception of several New Jersey and New
York regiments, they chiefly endured the
severities of that noted cantonment. The
officers who signed the memorial had
been sent by their respective commands
to Lancaster, where the authorities of the
State were located. Immediate efforts
were taken to ameliorate the condition of
the patriots, but history does not inform us
how many lives went out amidst the
misery and gloom which brooded over
the cabins of the soldiers of the Revolu-
tion at Valley Forge :]

Lancaster, 3d February, 1778.
To his Excellency the President and
the Honbl, Members of the Supreme
Executive Council of this State, a me-
morial :

Captain Thomas Bartholomew Bo wen,
ot the Ninth, and Captain James Chrys-
tie, of the Third Pennsylvania Regiments,
beg leave, agreeable to their Instructions,
to lay before your Excellency and the
Hon'ble, Council, the extremely dis-
tressed Situation of thise Corps, for want
of every Article of Clothing.

Barefooted, naked and miserable be-
yond expression — several brave soldiers
having nothing more than a piece ot old
Tent to shield them from the inclemency
of the Season, and not more than one
Blanket to six or perhaps eight men.
Very few indeed, are in any wise fit for
Duty; the Clothing of both Officers and
Soldiers having been Ion in the course of
the Campaign, particularly twice in con-
sequence of General Orders for storing
them at Concord and at Wilmington; and
their Blankets lost in the several Actions
we have had with the Enemy.

That these Corps, with the Sixth and
Twelfth Pennsylvania Regiments, are
attach 'd to a Division composed partly of
Jersey Troops, under the command of
General Officers not belonging to this
State; who.it may naturally be supposed,
will be careful to have the Troops of their
own State clothed, preferably to those of
another, agreeable to the late Regula-
tions.

That ever since General Conway left
us, we have had no General Officer to
make application for us, or to see that
Justice should be done us in the distribu-
tion of the Clothing remitted to the Army;



the Brigade to which we are attach'd,
having been successively under the tern*
porary Command of Colonels belonging
to other States.

That General Wayne having procured
a Quantity of Clothing and three hundred
pair of Shoes, it is more than probable he
will supply the two Brigades under his
immediate Command, in preference to
the Regiments of this State annexed to
other Divisions; and if their wants are
equal to ours, the Surplus, if any, will
afford us but a very inconsiderable Pro-
portion.

Tour Memorialists, therefore, in behalf
of the before mentioned Regiments, Pray
your Excellency and the Hon'ble Coun-
cil to grant them speedy Relief, by order-
ing the Receiver General of Clothing for
this State, to supply them with a propor-
tion of the necessary Articles now on
hand. Tour Memorialists are sensible
that Congress, in their late resolution,
have directed the Clothing to be issued
thro* the hands of the Clothier General;
but ss General Wayne has found means
to supply his Troops without the formali-
ties, which in our present miserable Situ-
ation, must greatly retard the relieving
our distresses, perhaps that Resolution
may not be positively determinate.

If so, your Humanity and Justice will
induce your Hon'ble Board to imme-
diately supply the other Troops of this
State with a Quota of what is now in
Possession.

And your Memorialists, &c.,
Ja. Chrystib,

Captn. Sd Ftnn'a.
Thob. B. Bowen,
Captn. 9th Pbnn'a.

Captain Bowen, for himself, would now
beg leave to inform your Excellency and
Council that he has lost all his clothing,
to a very considerable value, in two suc-
cessive campaigns ; And prays he may
be indulged with an order for some
Linen & other necessaries, to supply his
immediate wants, subject to such prices
as are or may be charged, agreeable to
the late Resolution of Congress.
