I am related to your MORELAND line, this is what
I have in my database on your Davis H.MORELAND:
I have his as Davis MORELAND bn 1819 in High Shoals,
Lincoln,NC. His father was Thomas MORELAND of Surry Co., NC,bn ca 1798
d.? probably in High Shoals,NC. Davis' mother was
Delilah Elizabeth ADAMS.
Thomas MORELAND was the son of my 3rd-great-grand
father, Joseph MORELAND and Sarah THORNON, dau of
William THORNTON and Sarah ARVIN.
Davis H. MORELAND died in 1890 in Montague Co.,
TX. My Great-Grandfather, Joseph MORELAND (another
Joseph) was the grandson of Joseph and Sarah mentioned
above. Joseph was living in Spanish Fort,Montague,TX
in early 1900's. I believe Davis died in Sunset,
Montague,TX. Will have to dig through my
