Surnames: Moorman, Owen, Venable, Martin
Jane Virginia Moorman b. 5-25-1793 m. 5-10-1811, Grant Owen d. 5 -8-1848 in Breckinridge, KY. One source has her as the daughter of William Moorman b. 2-10-1772, VA and Elizabeth Martin b. 12-25-1758, VA? Jane and Grant had 5 children all born in Breckinridge Co., KY, Jane Venable Owen, Grant R. Owen, Elizabeth Owen, Judith Owen, and Abraham Owen.

In the 1850 Census of Breck. Co., there is a James Venable Moorman 72m VA Farmer, wife Ann 48f KY, Abraham 21, Margaret A. 20, Alice 18, Susan L.16, John 14, Achillies 12m, Cyrus 10m, James 8, & Henry 6.

Is this Jane Virgina Moorman any relation to James Venable Moorman? Has anyone sorted out the Moorman's of Virgina and Kentucky? Does anyone know if they were Quakers?

My experience in researching my Moorman ancestors in Breckinridge Co. has been that a great many of them (and their slaves) were members of the Goshen Baptist church and records of their births, baptisms and deaths can be found in the church records.

Here's information on James Venable Moorman from a very reliable source, Mary Stewart.

Surnames: Moorman, Adams, Venable, Lewis, Martin, Berryman
Jane's parents were a different William -- William Moorman b. 1751, Louisa County, VA, son of Achilles Moorman and Elizabeth Adams, and his wife, Judith Venable, daughter of Hugh Lewis Venable and Mary Martin.

Jane and James Venable Moorman were first cousins. Their grandparents were Achilles & Elizabeth. The Ann named as James' wife in the 1850 census was Nancy Newton Berryman, his second wife.

This branch of the Moorman family was not Quaker. While Achilles' father, Charles, and two of his siblings (Thomas and Judith) were active Quakers, Achilles and his other siblings were not.

Hi Erin,

Both Mary Stewart and Cindy Courtier have posted quite a bit of information about the Moormans on these message boards. I think if you read thru them, you'llfind what you need. However, consulting "The Goshen Story," a history of the Baptist church in Breckinridge County, I find William (1751-1829), who was the s/o Achilles; this is my line. I also see a William Moorman, brother of James Haden Leftwich Moorman and son of Charles Clark Moorman - If he was there in 1810, I don't know. BUT try to contact the two experts named above. They can get you straight immediately.

Hi Erin,
Can you be a little more specific about who you looking for. There are a lot of William's alive in 1810.

What is your lineage?

Surnames: Moorman, Coleman
I have been looking for Maranda P Moorman b 1843. She had a sister Martha Moorman b 1845. Maranda married William W Coleman b 1841 Big Spring. On the 1870 Census, Martha was living with William and Maranda.

1870 Census-- Maranda P Coleman estimated birth year: 1843 gender: Female age in 1870: 27y color: White, birthplace: Kentucky home in 1870: Kentucky, United States Household Gender Age Wm W Coleman M 28y Maranda P Coleman F 27y Lamira E Coleman F 7y James W Coleman M 5y Lucy Ann Coleman F 1y Martha Moorman F 25y

William and Maranda had a son William R Coleman 1872, who is my DH great grandfather. Maranda's parents are the last ones I need to find. In most of the Census she is listed as M P Coleman.

I have tried all different spellings, etc, Stith Valley, Big Spring pages and still can not find her parents.

Thanks!
