Hi Linda,
Don't know if our William is the same one or not. My william was married to a Mary unknown. But I am interested in your Lucas side of the family also. My maiden name is Lucas. I have been trying to find my ggrandfather Thomas Lucas ancestors for a long time. If you would like to exchange info on these families you may e- mail me direct at Hamom01@ aol.com
Thanks in advance,
Shirley Lucas Bias

I don't know who George married. I can't find much information on the family. The only one I have any information on is Eleanor Bragg, she married Milton hersikell Davidson. Do you have any information on this family?

QUESTION: WHERE DID YOU FIND THE NAME "WILLIAM" IN WILLIAM MOORE BRAGG? I AM DESCENDED FROM MOORE BRAGG AND JENNY YORK THROUGH THEIR SON HENDERSON. I HAVE A THEORY OF WHO MOORE'S PARENTS ARE. I THINK HIS PARENTS ARE WILLIAM BRAGG, SON OF MOORE BRAGG AND SARAH KELLY, AND WIFE'S NAME RUTH ASBURY, OR THAT THE SAME WILLIAM BRAGG IS THE SAME PERSON AS MOORE BRAGG. (WHICH COULD MAKE HIS NAME WILLIAM MOORE BRAGG). JENNY COULD BE MOORE'S SECOND WIFE.
NANCY BRAGG, DAUGHTER OF MOORE AND JENNY, MARRIED AN EYESTONE (I CANNOT RECALL HIS FIRST NAME) AND HAD A SON NAMED ASBURY EYESTONE. I HAVE READ SOME MESSAGES FROM NANCY BRAGG EYESTONES FAMILY THAT STATES THAT THEY FEEL THAT MOORE'S NAME IS ACTUALLY WILLIAM MOORE BRAGG AND THAT HE WAS IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR.
I HAVE INFORMATION FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF BOONE COUNTY (INDIANA) LISTED UNDER CAPTAIN JAMES BRAGG (SON OF WILLIAM, SON OF MOORE AND BROTHER TO HENDERSON) THAT MOORE AND MARY YORK WERE BOTH CHILDREN OF REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIERS.

I got it from someone else that is researching the jones family too. I just reread his e-mail and i should have taken the william off because he said he thinks it was a mistake that his cousin made. I will have to research who said moores parents might be. :D

Thanks

I think you are correct. However I think it was not Wm. Moore or Moore Bragg husband of Mary Jane "Jenny" York Bragg, who was the Revo. War Veteran but his father.
Wm. Moore Bragg husband to Jenny was to young to be in the Rev. War I believe he was in the War of 1812 with John Daubenspeck. Who married Jenny York Bragg widow of Moore Bragg.
My line is Nancy Bragg who married Jonathan Eyestone.
You are correct she did name a son Jonathan Asbury, also a son Wm. Moore.
