  • Notes 
    • Pages 36-37:
      Moses Clore (son of Peter Clore) was born about 1755-1760. He inherited from his father 200 acres of land and the plantation on which the testator was then living. Moses Clore was confirmed in Hebron Lutheran Church, April 7, 1776. He makes his communion, Easter Sunday, 1777, which appears to be his last connection with the Hebron Church. Perhaps he joined the Baptist Church about this time. On April 17, 1789 Moses Clore and wife Susanna sold one acre to the Baptists Society. Adam Clore and Lannard (sic) Christler witnessed this deed. He signed petitions, November 9, 1776 and November 16, 1776. He bought 100 acres from Philip Chelf about 1786. In 1787 and 1788 he was taxed for 100 acres. From 1794 to 1802 he was taxed for 99 acres; in 1803, 1804, 1805, 1810, and 1811, he was taxed for 99 and 100 acres. He does not appear in the 1814 and 1815 tax-lists. How he disposed of the 200 acres inherited from his father is not known. On April 20, 1795 Moses Clore and wife Susanna sold 11 acres to Adam Clore. On same date Adam Clore and wife Margaret sold this same tract back to Moses Clore. For relinquishment of Moses Clore to Adam Clore, see under Adam Clore. On August 21, 1811, Moses Clore and wife Susanna sold to Lewis Crigler 259 1/2 acres, which land is described in 1814 (under Lewis Crigler) as being on the Robinson River, adjacent to William Strother. It does not appear how Moses Clore acquired a right to this land. He seems never to have been taxed for it. Moses Clore appears in the 1810 census of Madison County, Virginia., with one male and one female over 45, and with a large family of children both male and female. It is curious that we have been unable to locate any descendants of Moses Clore. One Jacob Clore married Jennie Right (Wright), September 13, 1804, Madison County, Virginia., and in same county he married Mary Stevens, Feb. 20, 1808. The tax-lists of 1802-4 show that Moses Clore had a son old enough (16 years) to be classed as a tithable, name not given. The Jacob Clore who married in 1804 and 1808 was probably this son. There seems to be no other Clore to whom he might have belonged. This Jacob Clore appears in the 1810 census with wife and 3 children under 5, Madison County, Virginia.
