3rd great grandfather, John D. Jenkins owned. This is from the Prince Edward Courthouse in Farmville, Virginia.

(April 9, 1853) 100 acres from Joseph and Ann E. Ellett to John. D. Jenkins
"North by lands of Caswell Moring and Willis Ellette, east by lands of J. D. Jenkins, South by Samuel D. Vaughn and West by the land of Edward B. Miller."

William Wyatt Moring was born in 1818 at the Moring home place in Prince Edward County. He was the oldest of Caswell and Emily's nine boys.

He was listed as "sheriff" in the 1850 Amelia County, Virginia Federal Census.

He served in "H" Company of the 44th Virginia Infantry of Amelia County, Virginia alongside his son Walter Fabius Maximus Moring.

He was dismissed late in 1861 for being "over age" for service.

Richard Henderson Moring, the son of Caswell and Emily Moring, was born in 1836 at the Moring home place in Prince Edward County, Va. He was the seventh of nine boys and eighth of ten siblings.

At the outbreak of the war, he was earning a living as a farmer in Lunenburg County.

He enlisted on May 28, 1861 at Meherrin, in "K" Company of the 21st Virginia Infantry, as a private."K" company was known as the "Meherrin Greys".

At the time of his enlistment, he was listed as 5'9" tall, black hair, hazel eyes, and a dark complexion.

He was listed as POW at Spotsylvania on May 12, 1864. He was sent to Point Lookout Prison, Maryland, and then to Elmira Prison in New York State. He was "exchanged" on October 11, 1864 and it is unclear whether he rejoined his unit or served as a "home guard" in Prince Edward County.

He was admitted to Farmville Hospital where he stayed from January 3, 1865 until March 16, 1865. His ailment was listed as "pneumonia and debility."

In the final days of Lee's last stand, he was again POW. This time captured at Amelia on April 6, 1865. Ironically, he was captured less than six miles from the Moring home place in Prince Edward County. Once again, he was sent to Point Lookout and was held until June 15, 1865 after taking the "Oath of Allegiance."

After the war, he returned to the Moring home place to settle and assumed a life of farming and earning a living as a carpenter.

His final years were spent in Danville, with his second wife Annie Eliza Wise Moring, probably residing near or with his daughter Mary H. Moring.

He died in 1910 and is buried on the old Moring home place near Rice. The exact location of his grave on the property is unknown.
