RE: Waugh's
I'm not sure which email you have but an old one of mine is still active. However, I now use

I do have some things on james waugh's ancestral line. However, it's not organized and I find it to be quite frustrating only because of use of the same names that is used generation after generation. so i have to sort that stuff out. a lot of people seem to believe that james waugh's father fought in the revolutionary war. i believe this particular waugh family descends from from rev john waugh, but i have not yet confirmed that. below i will include a link about rev john waugh.

Hi Cathy,

It's been a very long time since we last talked. I just wanted to touch base with you and see how your research on the Waugh's were coming along. I think the last time we talked I pointed you in the right direction of the whereabouts of James Waugh after he left Adams County, PA. The answer was North Carolina. The research has been fine on my part. Months ago I went to North Carolina to do research on James Waugh, his family and slaves and couldn't exactly get much done because the people I stayed with came along to the archives and didn't realized how much work research is. Therefore I wasn't able to get much done. I do plan to get back down there soon. Although James Waugh was not a Moravian, he had ties to the Moravian community. The Moravians are a bit of a blessing because they documented close to everything regarding the community, including those that weren't of the Moravian background. Below I will include a link of one of the places I visited. I actually seen the of James Waugh, his daughter Mary Maria, and a few of his slaves up close and personal. I sat down with some of the researches that were quite excited to learn whom I descend from (which is one of James's slaves and possibly him). It was a very exciting experience. I have also been working on trying to find the connection to the other Waugh's in North Carolina, like William Pitt, and I finally figured it out! However, it's something I need to go back over to make sure its 100% correct.

I also found some pictures of some Moffetts that may be a use to you. Please let me know if you are interested in the pictures.

Hope to hear from you soon!

RE: William Moffett 28900405
Thanks for letting me know! I appreciate the info and will make the proper corrections in my tree. Something just didn't seem to be right on that one so I went to the source.

Thanks again,

William Moffett 28900405
Hello Cathy,

I was wondering if you might know if William Moffett was married 2x or not? I am finding him married to a Lucinda Smith; a 3rd great aunt to my grandfather, and was wondering if you can confirm this? If this marriage occurred it happened 3 Feb 1810, in Knox County, Tennessee, USA. Hoping you might shed some light on this matter.

Thank you,
Rob Blew (YankeeGraver)

My ancestor, Jacob SHUMAN, was a brother of your Thomas W. SHUMAN. Jacob married a Mary "Polly" CARPENTER, who was the daughter of John CARPENTER. John CARPENTER had an older daughter named Margaret "Peggy" CARPENTER who married John BOWMAN and the latter couple lived in Brownsville, Fayette Co PA. Have you run into a John CARPENTER in your MOFFETT/BOWMAN/SHUMAN studies? I am seeking the name of John's wife (naming patterns of his known and presumed grandchildren suggests Mary) and also the names of his parents. This CARPENTER family lived in Fayette Co PA before moving to Hamilton Co OH by 1806, some then moved to Dearborn Co IN, but I don't know where they originated [maybe Hagerstown, MD?]. Thanks for any help!

Not related just returning a favor from long ago. Nancy's Father Nicholas Dorsey signed an affidavit for Richard Allen to verify that he was Free.

Re:William Moffett
Cathy, I am researching my 2 times great grandfather William P. Moffett who was born in Carroll Co Maryland in 1840. His father was Samuel Moffett who came to this country from Ireland in 1832. Samuel married Elizabeth Hilderbritt in Carroll Co. Maryland. I am wondering if there is a connection to your William Moffett who came to this country from Ireland in 1805 and settled in Maryland. Have you heard of any connection between Samuel and William. I am wondering since Samuel named his first son William. Thought they might somehow be related as they are both from Ireland and settled in the same place but several years apart. Thanks so much. Anne Maesaka

RE: Waugh's
no nothing new on my end. i think i have come to the point where i have done all that i can do online. i would have no choice but to go to north carolina and search myself, because ordering records by mail is expensive especially if the requested search comes up empty.
