Samuel Alexander Moore was the oldest son of Bud Mathis Moore and Martha Brown Coulter. He died at the tragically young age of 32 but did leave three children. According to the Furman Moore history of the Bud Mathis Moore family: “Born Sept. 21, 1828. Di8ed May 18, 1861 (nine days after being kicked by his horse). Rests at Standing Spring Church yard. He had organized a company of cavalry for the Southern Army and was soon to lead it to the front.”

I have “met” several descendants of Bud Mathis Moore’s younger son, William Spencer Moore, online, but have not yet gotten in touch with any descendants of Samuel Alexander Moore. Bits and pieces of both lines appear in several online genealogies, and I have also been in contact with a researcher who has some extensive information on some of the children of these two sons of Bud Mathis Moore. The family names Bud Mathis (or at least “B.M.”) and Samuel appear to be passed mainly through the Samuel Alexander line.

I would like to know who Mary Ann Elizabeth Baldwin Moore’s parents were; Samuel Alexander’s youngest sister, Jeanetta M. T. “Nettie” Moore married a William Warren Baldwin, who may be related.
