1867 Voter Registration of Texas states he was born in South Carolina; but the 1870 census in Trinity says MS.

1867 Voter Reg: Isaac Moore Trinity Pct 4 South Car

Marriage

From Snell surname at Genforum, posted by Sandra Nunley, July 23, 2002:

A John Snell's will appears in Wilcox County, Alabama, Will Book dated 30 Dec 1835 and lists the following:

"my son" John Snell "Daughter" Lovey Carr wife of John Carr Anna Kebler wife of Peter Kebler Mary Wilmore wife of Samuel Wilmore dec'd Sarah Thompson wife of William Thompson Delila Moore wife of Isaac Moore "my son" Hamlin A. Snell "my daughter" Laviney or Lavicy Snell

The will was proved 15 Jan 1838.

My note: Isaac and Delila named one of their sons William Hamlin, further evidence that this is the father-in-law of Isaac.

Census

The 1830 census of Wilcox shows Isaac Moor with his young family:

Isaac Moor age 20-30 Wife 20-30 2 female children under 5 (Renvey and Mary)

John Snell and wife (Delila's parents) also lived in Wilcox Co.

Well move over and I will introduce my self, because you are my cousin through my g-g-g-grandmother Sarah Jane Moore, and yes, Isaac and Delila are her parents. John A. (Henry) Rogers was her first husband my g-g-g-grandfather so now we need to connect the two Men, John A.(Henry)Rogers, and William M. Rogers. I pray you may have the answer to how he died, how did g-g-g-grandmother meet Richmond Oliver Bennett.

I, like I said, am the g-g-g-grand daughter of John A. and Sarah Jane Moore, Rogers, Bennett. They had two children before [what] ever happened to John. The two children where William Robert Rogers who married Wealthy Clemintine Hodges 1st marriage, then Mary Francis Sanders 2nd marriage. Second child was Johnny/John/ C. Rogers born about 1859 and then December 25, 1860 Sarah married Richmond Oliver Bennett. William and Clemmie Hodges, Rogers where my g-g-grandparents. They had a daughter named Sarah Ruby Rogers, Davis who married my grandfather Lewis Washingotn Davis, and they had four boys, 1st was my father Robert William Davis b. April 21, 1917. Then dad married mom, Macel, Mary Edan Granger, Davis and here I am. So we are kin through the Moore side, and if we find out the two boys, Willim and John where cousins, we will be kin through that side also. We will be a whole lot of cousins removed in many ways, lol. My name is Linda Sue, Jones maiden, Davis.

Renvey Moore Rogers was my ggggrandmother. Her parents were Isaac and Delila Snell Moore. It is believed that Isaac was murdered when he returned to Alabama from TX. He moved to Trinity Co. TX around 1856 from Shelby Co. AL.

Isaac and Delila married in 1827 in Cloudland, Chattoga, GA. I know of 6 children and they may have had more: Renvey, Mary Elizabeth, Ann Eliza, Eunice "Nicey", Sarah Jane, & William Hamlin.

I think Delila was the daughter of John Snell, b 1770 and died 1825 in Wilcox, AL.

I have always thought that John A. "Henry" Rogers was connected to my line of Rogers but can't prove it. He may have been a brother to William M. "Billy" Rogers that married Renvey Moore, sister to Sarah Jane Moore

Note

In a personal letter from maggelio on ancesty.com:

Isaac Moore and Delila Snell married in 1827 in GA according to a record in the US & International Marriage Record 1560-1900. According to the Millennium File on ancestry, Annie Eliza Moore was born 10/15/1827 to Isaac and Delila Snell Moore. According to census records, she was born in 1832. Her sister, Renvey, my gggrandmother, according to census records was born in1827. In Alabama Marriages, 1809-1920 it records that Isaac Moore married Nancy L Lovelady 1/11/1847 in Shelby Co AL. They had at least one child, Melissa, born in 1851. Isaac's other children by Delila are Renvy b 1827, Mary Elizabeth b 1828, Ann Eliza b 1832, Eunice b 1833, William Hamlin b 1835, and Sarah Jane b 1837.

Ann Eliza is on the 1850 Al census but she is already married. Renvey is on the 1850 TX census and she is already married, also. Sarah Jane is in TX in 1855 when she married; so, I guess the family was in the process of moving.

Isaac Moore (b. December 22, 1811, d. November 16, 1876)

Isaac Moore was born December 22, 1811 in Mississippi, and died November 16, 1876 in Alabama. He married (1) Delila Snell on 1827 in Alabama, daughter of John Snell. He married (2) Nancy L. Lovelady on January 11, 1847 in Shelby County Alabama.

Notes for Isaac Moore: There is news of the murder of Issac Moore that was reported in Tuscaloosa Gazette. This Issac Moore was living near Uniontown, Alabama where he was found murdered by unknown parties. A descendant of our Issac Moore, Elaine Ingram Lockhart says he went back and forth to Alabama a lot. Since Issac never returned to Texas from his last trip to Alabama, the family believes this Issac Moore that was murdered was our ancestor, which would explain why he never returned back home to Texas.

Issac along with some of his children and their spouses and families came to Texas from Shelby County, Alabama about 1856 and settled in the county of Trinity. Henderson Vick and Levi English made affidavit that they were acquainted with Issac Moore and that he had settled on vacant land December 24, 1856 when he made application for ownership. Issac received survey and title to 160 acres of land situated about 15 miles from the town of Sumpter on March 20, 1857. Property was located west of Apple Springs, Texas on Hwy. 94, near Elaine Lockhart's present residence. She was told by her mother that Issac had a tanning shop where he tanned hides for personal use and possibly trade.
