The Descendants of Jesse Moore, Prisoner of the Tories, Who Fired into the Air at King's Mountain

An 1887 account of Jesse Moore's descendants in North Carolina:
"And even thus far down the line of his posterity we note that, as a general thing, the Moores are not notoriously bad."

This compares well with their half-Cherokee Coker cousins in Arkansas of whom William Monks wrote in 1907: "They were very dangerous men when drinking, and the whole country feared them."
