Re: Redding MOORE of NC/SC

Hello ... I will be glad to share what I have about Redding Moore. Unfortunately, the identity of his parents has never, to my knowledge, been established.

I know that Redding Moore and his wife, Ann, moved to the area of Florence, SC (then known as Marion District)around 1815. He purchased land near the area now known as Mars Bluff, and there is a crossroads today known as Moore's Crossroads in that area.

Ann apparently died around 1829, and Redding married Nancy (Jones?).

Redding was a minister of the Free Will Baptist denomination in NC, and was the founder of the Free Will Baptist churches in SC. He died around 1849.

Blaney was a son of Nancy and Redding. He was a sergeant in the Confederate Army, and I believe he died in a prison camp. I do have a picture that is said to be of him.

That is a summary, but I do have more detailed information about his family and a couple of areas where he owned land.
