Major Willard Moore 1743-1775.

Willard Moore, was born April 1743, married Elizabeth Hubbard, on March 18, 1762, at Paxton, Worcester, Massachusetts. There is no record of any children.

Alpheus Moore, had a claim in Congress fore a seven years half-pay pension.


WAR DEPARTMENT, February 21, 1793.

That Alpheus Moore, in behalf of himself and Willard Moore, orphan children of Willard Moore, late of Paxton, State of Massachusetts, and Mark Lincoln, of Leominster, in said State, and Elizabeth, his wife, late widow of the said Willard Moore, states that the said Willard Moore was a major in the regiment commanded by Colonel Doolittle, and was killed in the action of Bunker’s Hill, on the 17th day of June, 1775.

That they were, until very lately, ignorant of the provision made by Congress for the widows and orphans of officers who were killed in the service. He therefore prays that the seven years’ half-pay of a major may be granted to them.
