* Sarah m David Bryan in Fauquier Co, VA 20 Dec1792. Samuel was bondsman for his daughter. Figure Sarah b ca 1772. Bryans and Bryants in 1790 Fayette and Mercer co. Bryans and Bryants in 1800 Fayette; none in Mercer. A David Bryan in Lincoln Co. No David Bryans in 1810 KY census. A David Bryan in 1820 Christian Co, KY census.

* Elizabeth Moore m Cuthbert Musgrove. Elizabeth bc 1772. The Musgroves were located in Charles Co, MD, Fauquier, Fairfax and Loudon Co, VA before move to KY. Cuthbert bc 1770 VA. Cuthbert in the 1800 Mercer, KY, in 1810 Fayette, KY census and 1820-1830 Warren, KY censuses, 1840 Hardin Co, KY census, 1850 Larue Co, KY census (Cuthbert age 78). Cuthbert and Elizabeth reportedly died Edmundson, KY; Cuthbertson after 1861: Elizabeth after 1860. Children: Nancy Jane b1791 (VA) m 1814 Mercer Co, KY, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret, Henson, Susan, Samuel, Will, Ed, John (all KY).

* Henson Moore m. Anne Fowler. Henson in 1800 Mercer, KY census. m. 30 Nov 1803 Washington Co, KY. Note that his wife was called Anna and not Anne in the estate settlement. In 1810 Washington Co, KY census. Washington Co is next to Mercer Co. Not in 1820 KY census. Reportedly born 1778 in Washington Co [?].

* Samuel Moore. Wife named Malinda. A Samuel Moore m. Malinda Mitchell 13 Sep 1802 in Fauquier Co, VA. John Rosser was bondsman. Samuel was dead by 1818. His widow Malinda was given custody of Beverly, Frances and Luticia on 25 August 1818. Frances Moore was given custody of Frances Moore on 22 Aug 1825.

Samuel Moores in the 1790 Fayette, Lincoln and Bourbon censuses of KY. Samuel Moores in the 1800 census of Mercer, Lincoln (2), Logan, Harrison and Nicholas Cos. In 1810 (after Samuel Sr.'s death), there was a Samuel Moore in Fayette Co.

22 Aug 1825. Francis W. Brooke, guardian of Frances Moore, orphan of Samuel Moore, decd. For $100. Security: William F. Phillips.

* Mary Simpson .... Two Mary Simpsons listed as head of household in the 1810 KY census; one in Shelby Co and one in Calloway Co. Is she a child of Samuel or could she be his widow who remarried? I think with the custom of the day if she had remarried her husband would also have been mentioned in the settlement. ** See note from 1797 where Samuel Moore of Fauquier deeded slaves to Mary Simpson and his daughter Anne Chinn, both of Loudon County.

These are the children from Charity's first marriages:

* John Courts Wade .... Data from LDS Family Search: ?Charity Courts m.Zacchariah Wade before her marriage to Samuel Adams. Zacchariah was a widower with two children (Richard Wade 1725 and Zacchariah Wade Jr. 1727) when he married Charity and they had one child (John Courts Wade) before Zacchariah's death.? Note: Samuel Adams? will names John Courts Wade to receive a small amount of his property, a calf and gun. If Charity were 18 when John Courts Wade was born, her birth year would have been 1715 (1708-1718). Her child bearing age would have ended by 1760 or so.

* Tabitha Adams 1738-1776 m Gen. William Russell Jr. [William Russell Jr. was JP and Sheriff of Culpeper Co, VA]

* Celia Adams 1740 m Joseph Stevens

* Atheahleah Adams 1740 (twin) m Joseph Hopewell. [Joseph Hopewell d 1831 Shenandoah Co, VA]

* Cloe Adams 1742

* Henley Adams 1744. Some say that there was an Adams son, but he was not in Samuel Adams' will. I think that this may have come from a Francis Adams document that mentioned Samuel Adams' five children. Possibly his stepson John Courts Wade was the fifth child.
