Circleville Herald, April 1, 1837: The obituary had this to say about
William Moore: "Died - - in this town on the 26th Oct. (sic) Mr.
William Moore, a native of Ireland, aged 75 years. Mr. Moore was one of
the first settlers of Circleville. He led a peaceful, inoffensive life,
and at a good old age has been gathered to his fathers. Peace to his
Some background information on Moore�s hometown in Inniskillen,
Fermanuagh Co., Ireland: Enniskillen comes from Inis Ceithleanon,
"Crooked Tooth", wife of Balor of the Stout Blows, mother of 12
white-mouthed sons. She and husband were leaders of a piratical people,
the Formorians, who held territory in Fermanaugh, early in second
millennium BC. For further information on the Moore line, there are
four Methodist churches in Enniskillen. Write to the Methodist Church
on Darling Street. This may have been the church that wrote him a
letter of recommendation to take with him when he immigrated to America
about 1791, when he was about 29 years of age. This may have been the
Free Methodist Society�s meeting house at that time. It was not allowed
back then for them to call themselves a church.
(According to his great-great-grandson, Howard B. Moore II, William left
Pennykillen, Fermanaugh county, Ireland in 1791. On way to
Circleville,OH he married Elizabeth Benford in PA.)
