Some researchers list another child of Conrad and Anne Moots, as Daniel Moots born October 12, 1805. But Daniel is not mentioned in the Will of his father Conrad. However, Philip Moots, Conrad's brother, had a child Daniel Moots born October 12, 1805. Conrad's son, Philip Moots was also born on that date. I am assuming it is just a coincidence and Conrad did not have a son named Daniel. Also, there is a Charles Moots B: 1815 listed by some as a member of the family, however, he also is not mentioned in Conrad's Will. The Charles Moots who witnessed his signing of the Will might be his brother, Charles, Sr., or perhaps his nephew Charles, Jr.. Conrad only mentions 7 children.
