Colonel Augustine Moore
This image was found on the internet c. 2004 but it's source was unknown until I received the following information from Bret Rumsey 8/21/08. Thank you, Bret!
"This portrait is now part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Collection, and is attributed to Charles Bridges. The provenance of the photo is believed to be:
From Augustine Moore
to his widow Elizabeth Todd Seaton Moore
To her son Bernard Moore
To his widow Anna Katherine Spotswood Moore
To (her nephew?) Bernard Moore II
To his widow Lucy Leiper Moore
To (her son?) Andrew L. Moore
To his wife Ann Nelson Moore
To her daughter Lucy Moore Robinson (Lucy and her husband sold “Chelsea” in 1870 and took the
Moore portraits with them at that time).
To her son Leiper Moore Robinson
Sold to his niece Louise Beverly Turner
Descended to her granddaughter Helen Jones Ballou
Helen, my wife’s grandmother, sold the painting to the CWF in 1976.
My wife and I were just in Williamsburg a few weeks ago and this portrait is currently on display in the DeWitt Wallace Museum, along with a portrait of his wife and another believed to be of their two children, Lucy and Bernard."
