Description Click here to collapse or expand the contents in this section of the finding aid

The papers consist of materials relating to the William Moore Family of Greene and Pitt Counties in North Carolina, as well as other families that are related to the Moores by marriage. Included in this collection are financial and legal documents (1782-1902, undated) associated with the Moore Family. These include bills of sale, receipts, land plats, promissory notes, indentures, deeds, surveys, and estate inventories. Of interest are Smith family deeds (1818) that exemplify the sale of land by a guardian of infant heirs, sale of multiple tracts, and sale of dower lands in the estate of a deceased husband. Also included is a record of a sale by a minor (1824). Much of the remainder is concerned with the settlement of the estate of William Moore (1830-1835), including an inventory, which lists twenty-six slaves by name. A marriage license (1832) for James Nelson and Annice Moore also has genealogical notes on the Llewellyn family on the back. Records of sales of slaves (1797-1818), promissory notes and notes receivable (1818-1823), and legal papers concerning amounts of money owed William Moore and his estate are also included.

The papers also include financial documents relating to the J. & M. Moore Store (1859-1890). These receipts, transactions, and correspondence show the names of many Greenville citizens, as well as what people ordered, how much it cost, and where merchants purchased their merchandise.

The bulk of the papers consist of genealogical research material relating to the William Moore family and the James Brooks family. These materials include notes and correspondence between the donor and her contacts, newspaper clippings, photocopies of research documents and published material, photographic prints, and photocopies of photographic prints. In the folder of genealogical materials relating to William and Annis Lewellyn Moore (#596.1.a) is a handwritten document (undated) entitled “A few lines to the drunkard hopeing (sic) he will see his Error and turn from his bad habbit (sic) and be wise. Simptoms (sic) etc. of drunkard”. Also included in the Moore family genealogical materials is a bound, typescript copy (2003) of “Some Moore Kin: Descendants of William and Annis Llewellyn Moore of Pitt and Greene Counties North Carolina,” composed and compiled by Rachel Brooks Hord, the donor of the collection. The document contains Mrs. Hord’s interpretations of the genealogical research material that she compiled about the Moore family.

The genealogical research material related to the Brooks family contains several items written by, to, or about the individual whose folder they are placed in. In the Francis Brooks Family folder (#596.3.e) are two letters (June 30, 1907, July 28, 1907) written by Francis (“Frank”) Brooks. Included in the Edwin Brooks Family folder (#596.3.f) is a bill of sale (1859) in which Edwin Brooks paid Frances Brooks, $4,000 for five family slaves named John, Viney, Nancy, Joseph, and Mahly. In this same folder are three letters (1896, undated) written by Edwin’s daughter, Melissa, to Elder P. D. Gold, one of which is an obituary for her mother, Martha Moore Brooks. The John Wilkes Brooks Family folder (#596.3.g) contains three Pitt County deeds (1885, 1891, 1963), a letter (1886) from M. Fields to his sister, Elizabeth Fields Brooks (wife of John Wilkes Brooks), a County of Pitt-North Carolina Taxpayer’s Notice for 1934 Taxes, a copy (1977) of “Zion’s Landmark: Published Monthly by Primitive or Old School Baptist,” and several other letters written to Mr. or Mrs. John Wilkes Brooks or family members.

Also included in the genealogical research materials of this collection are the Culpepper, Lewellyn, Mooring, Mayo, Grimes, Hardee and Moye families.

The oversized material in this collection consists of deeds and indentures acquired by the Moore family (1784-1879). There is also a Confederate States of America $100 bond (1863).
