The "other" Isaac and Sarah Moore of Grayson Co. VA

Be careful when looking at the Moores of early Grayson County. There were two different families of Isaac and Sarah Moore. There was Isaac Moore who married Sarah Carrico and Isaac who married Sarah ? (possibly Starr). I'll call the first the Grayson Moores and the latter the Madison Moores (because they later went to Madison County, Indiana).

Not only was there the coincidence of the parent names but incredibly there is also the coincidence of two different Daniel Moores who were born within a year of each other (1800) who married Hampton gals...whew!

The bottom line: None of the Grayson Moores went to Madison County, Indiana. And if you have Babbitt (Bobbitt), Mallory, Frost, Wise or Frazier links in your Grayson Moore files, they are not the Grayson Moores. Many of the Madison Moores are buried in Prewett Cemetery in Madison Co., IN.

Here is a 3 generation shapshot of the two families:
