            Do you have any information about the other William MORELAND in NC? Thomas MORELAND had a son, William, the smithy who died in 1816 in Guilford Co. John of Edgecombe and Halifax Cos. had a son, William. Do you have anything on him?

            I feel that Peter MORELAND is from one of the NC lines, but am making no progress.

Note from Nona: Using the MORELAND census records that were compiled by Eldon Edgin, I found the following family in Maries Co., MO in 1880:



Cora B.

Olive M.

Also in Maries Co., MO in 1880 were the following:

Andrew J.

Sarah J.


Nancy T.

Andrew B.

Alice is identified as the step-daughter of Andrew. The following family is listed in the 1850 census for Pulaski Co., MO:

Andrew J.






Also in Pulaski Co., MO in 1850 were:

Thomas H.


John H.

Malicia J.

Note: Malicia was 9 months old.

            Betty Little descends from John MORELAND b. 1846 MO; resided in Maries Co., MO in 1880; md. T. Missouri HAWKINS b. 1850, Missouri. She states that John's parents were born in Tennessee. It seems possible that John and Avery were brothers and may have been related in some way to Andrew J. MORELAND who was either born in Tennessee or Virginia.

            The MORELANDs of Goochland Co., VA were neighbors of William JAMES the ancestor of Jesse and Frank JAMES. It would be interesting to discover whether Demaries JAMES who married Avery MORELAND was related to the notorious JAMES family.

            Another interesting fact is that Maries Co. and Pulaski Co., MO are near Texas Co., MO where a descendant of the Carter Co., Tennessee MORELANDs settled.

            The Thomas H. MORELAND in Pulaski Co., MO in 1850 may or may not be related to other MORELANDs in that area. Elnora Williams descends from Thomas and Serilda and she states that Thomas was born either in TN or VA. Thomas was born 1 Jan. 1816 (the 1850 census must be in error) and he is buried in Carroll Co., Ark. Thomas MORELAND and Serilda BRIGGS were married in Crawford Co., MO ca. 1845.

            If anyone can offer any additional ideas about how these families might be related to one another and where they originated from, please send the information to this newsletter.

New Information

            The following was posted on Prodigy's computer bulletin board by a MORELAND researcher: My great-great-great-grandfather, Edward MORELAND and his sister, Sally MORELAND were born in the 1790s. Edward was born about 1793. They were raised by their Aunt ATKINSON in Jones Co., GA. They were supposed to be orphans and their father was supposed to have been killed by Indians. Technically speaking, to be orphaned at this point in time, was that your father had been killed. Anyway, I did find a John MORELAND who had been killed by the Creek Indians in 1799 in Greene Co., GA. There were also two other John MORELANDs in the county at the same time (father and son). Don't know if there was a relation between the one killed and these two. It is interesting to note that the wife of the John killed was named Lucy and she did apply for letters of admin. but no children were mentioned. However, it was stated that there was not more in the estate than would sustain her for more than one year, which meant that there would not have been any guardian bonds, even if there were children. Also, I did find a John ATKINSON that married a Sally MORELAND in March 1800 in Greene Co. I believe this to be the Aunt ATKINSON that raised the orphans, Edward and Sallie. It is possible that Lucy was Edward and Sallie's mother and the Sally that married John ATKINSON was Lucy's sister-in-law (John MORELAND's sister, the one killed). It is also possible that not only did the children move in with their aunt ATKINSON, but their mother (Lucy) also. This theory is further supported in the fact that in John ATKINSON's will, he names his wife to be Lucy and states in his will that she is his second wife (his first wife was Sallie). Also, I read in a query somewhere that there was also a Bartlett MORELAND in Greene Co. GA in the 1796 tax digests. The names Bartlett and Edward are repeated several times in my MORELAND lines. My grandfather was named Rufus Bartlet MORELAND and also my great-great-great-grandfather named one of his children Bartlett MORELAND. I believe that this Bartlett and Edward MORELAND found in Greene Co., GA in the 1790s may have been brothers. Also there were two MORELANDs living next to each other in Halifax Co., NC named Edward and Bartlett.

Information from Bill Moreland, 4281 Camaron Way, Lithonia, GA 30058.

Note: the following note was posted by Jane Linswiler on Prodigy and I don't have an address for her, but am repeating the information here in hope that it will be of interest to someone:

            My William Turner SADLER is son of Nathaniel Milton SADLER and Phoebe Tucker MORELAND. Nathaniel's brother, William Rose SADLER married Phoebe's sister, Nancy Turner MORELAND. Both were in the 1790s in Lincoln Co., NC. Nathaniel's family went to Putnam Co., GA. William's family went to Jefferson Co., Alabama. Both MORELAND girls are said to have been born in Dinwiddie Co., (burned), VA. They are the daughters of Joseph MORELAND who died before their marriages (in Lincoln Co.) and left a will which was printed in the Journal of North Carolina Genealogy VIII, 1962, pp. 1003, 1004 and 1033. It names brother Francis MORELAND, Turner HUNT, two sons: Isaac and Turner and 3 eldest Nancy, Isaac and Phoebe T.
