Looking for ancestors of John Moore b. 5-22-1810 in VA, lived in Nottoway Co. before moving to MS c. 1835. He may have been a builder/architect there, for once in MS he was responsible for numerous beautiful antebellum homes and other period homes.
His wife Mary Farley Jones (b. 12-6-1813 in Nottoway Co.) I know her parents were John Gooch Jones b. c. 1790 and Susan Lefevre Farley b. 9-16-1795; both were born in Nottoway Co., but I can't find information about their ancestors. I wonder if her her mother might have been a Lefevre.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm particularly curious about John's father's occupation.
