There were two separate Moore families living in the vicinity of Sandbrook and Headquarters in Delaware Township in the 19th century. One was English and one was German, and oddly enough, they seem never to have intermarried. This page will list both of them. The German family is far more extensive than the English one.

A note of explanation: This is a selective family tree. I only list five generations. Any more gets to be too much. I include the children of women named Moore, but not their grandchildren. I do not list the children of families that moved away from Hunterdon County.

As usual, corrections and additions are welcome in the comments section.

The English Moore Family

The English Moore family that settled in Hunterdon County goes back to Capt. John Gershom Moore (1670-1736) and wife Deborah Betts (b. c. 1675). They lived in Queens, NY, and had a son Samuel and daughter Margaret, both of whom moved to Hopewell Township.

Samuel Moore (1698-1759) married Mary Harrison and had sons Samuel and Jonathan. I have not studied the children of Samuel Jr. However, son Jonathan, who was born in Woodbridge, Middlesex County in 1720, and his wife Rhoda Furman, lived in Hopewell where their son Josiah was born in 1747. Josiah was the first of this family to live in today’s Hunterdon County.

The German Family

First Generation:

(1) Johannes Jacob Moore Sr. (c.1686 – c.1765) & Apolonia Amy Moret (c.1691 – ?)

Jacob Moore arrived in Amwell early in the 18th century from Germany, by way of New York. He selected a property on which to live, but exactly when he purchased it is hard to say. The earliest proprietary surveys were made in 1712, so the early date cited by the Moore descendants seems unlikely. The fact that Jacob Moore did not marry Apolonia Amy Moret until Sept. 24, 1719 also calls that early date into question.

Amy Moret was born about 1691, and Jacob Mohr/Moore was born 1686 (from secondary sources). Of their known children, nearly all grew to adulthood, married and had lots of their own children, which is why tracing the family is such a challenge. Also, many of them seem to vanish. Either they died young or left Hunterdon. There are many questions marks on this tree.

This tree relies in part on information found in A Special Union, Tracing the Moore Settlers of Spruce Run, Hunterdon County, NJ in Germany, Switzerland and Austria by George Moore and The Ancestors and Descendants of the Moores of Hunterdon County, NJ and Allied Families by Shirley Moore Barnes, self-published in 1998.

Jacob and Amy Moore had at least 62 grandchildren. A family tree of their descendants is mind-boggling for the number of well-known Hunterdon families that interconnect with the Moores. Here is a list of some of the Hunterdon families that married into the Moore family:

Agin, Aller, Alpaugh, Anderson, Bateman, Bearder, Bellis, Bilby, Bodine, Boss, Bowne, Brewer, Brink, Britton, Broadhurst, Brown, Buchanan, Burkett, Burroughs, Butterfoss, Carrell, Carver, Case, Chamberlin, Cline, Coates, Conover, Cooley, Corson, Cratsley, Crips, Cronce, Crum, Cullen, Dalrymple, Dilts, Dunham, Ege, Ely, Emmons, Ent, Everitt, Farley, Fauss, Fisher, Fox, Fulper, Gaddis, Gano, German, Godown, Gordon, Green, Groff, Gulick, Haines, Hall, Hann, Hart, Heath, Hice, Higgins, Hoagland, Hockenbury, Hoff, Hoffman, Holcombe, Hoppock, Horn, Housel, Hudnut, Hunt, Hyde, Johnson, Kinney, Kitchen, Kugler, Lair, Lake, Lambert, Landis, Larew, Larison, Lawshe, Leigh, Lowe, Maskil, Mathews, Mettler, Myers, Opdycke, Ott, Parkes, Peoplesdorf, Philhower, Phillips, Pickell, Pidcock, Pierson, Poulson, Prall, Quick, Reading, Reed, Rittenhouse, Robbins, Roberson, Robinson, Rockafellow, Romine, Rounsavel, Rouser, Runkle, Runyan, Schomp, Sergeant, Servis, Shadinger, Sharp, Shepherd, Sine, Sherman, Slack, Snyder, Stout, Streeter, Stull, Sutton, Swallow, Taylor, Thatcher, Tice, Tomlinson, Trimmer, Trout, Vandolah, Vansyckle, Wagner, Webster, Wenzel, White, Williamson, Wilson, Wimmer, Wolverton, Wood, Woodruff, Warman/Worman, Wright, Yorks, Young.

Egbert T. Bush was aware of this vast number of Moore descendants when he wrote:

. . . like many other good old names, the name Moore is disappearing, if it has not already disappeared, from the list of landed proprietors in this vicinity. There is a large admixture of Moore blood, both here and far afield. The numerous daughters of Daniel Moore and the female descendants of his sons have widely spread the blood, but under other names. Daniel’s lineal descendants, if not quite “as the sands of the seashore,” are so numerous and so scattered that they would be almost as hard to count.1

Corrections & Additions:

7/14/2018:  Pete Goodell pointed out that I had missed a child of Mary Moore & Samuel Fauss, and also one of Henry S. Moore & Mary Groff. They have been added.

7/20/2018:  Marty Campanelli informed me that some of my dates for the Peoplesdorf family were incorrect, and also one of the daughters, Amanda, was probably not a member of that family. For an interesting article on the Peoplesdorfs, see “For All The World To See.”
