From: "Pioneers of Old Monocacy" :

The Early Settlement of Frederick County, Maryland 1721-1743 by Grace L. Tracey and John P. Dern.

This book has quite a bit of info. referring to Thomas, Jr., (also became known as Colonel Thomas Prather in western Maryland). It states he was a surveyor, Constable of Lower Monocacy Hundred in 1738, a Justice of the County Court, an officer with the Maryland Militia and a member of the vestry of All Saint's Church. A few years after 1738, he removed to present-day Washington Co., where he built the Prather homestead near Big Pool, Maryland.

In 1760 his home on "Ramble" was in the possession of Elias Delashmutt, who in 1778 devised both it and "Sweed's Folly" to his son Basil with the condition that "during his natural life, he shall not dispose of or even lease it during his life except to one of his brethren or one by the name of Delashmutt". By 1743 in the area north of Point of Rocks where the Nelsons had settled, there were new neighbors, including Thomas Prather, Notley Thomas, James and John Hook, the Lakins and the Fees. Thomas Prather, Jr. was one of the most active men in the business affairs of Western Maryland.

Notes for Thomas Claggett(Lt Col) Prather
 Was killed in the batttle Lovathanna, Pa. during the French & Indian War. He
is buried at the Prather Cem. Clearsspring, Washington Co., Md. After his death
his widow married Thomas Freeman.

 The French and Indian army at Loyalhanna was under command of De Vitri. He began battle almost immediately on their arrival. The firing began about eleven o¿clock in the forenoon and lasted four hours. The battle was fought on or near the ground where is now the town of Ligonier. The army at Ligonier numbered twenty-five hundred on its first arrival from Bedford; but nearly three hundred were lost in Grant¿s fiasco, leaving only about twenty-two hundred. But it is probable that some advance companies from Forbes¿ army at Bedford had by October 12, reached Ligonier, though there is no record of that the writer can find. Bouquet was not present at the battle, but was stuck in the mud at Stony Creek, now in Somerset County, near the present town of Stoystown. Colonel James Burd commanded the forces in Bouquet¿s absence. The enemy during the battle was probably on lower ground than Burd¿s troops, though the location is not clearly outlined in the reports. It is known, however, that Burd was on the ground preparing for the coming of the enemy, and that he was easily way enough to entrench his army on high ground and allow the enemy to attack him. He was also preparing to erect or was already erecting a fort, and it is likely that the army was encamped near the site selected for its location. The enemy coming from Fort Duquesne came, of course, from the west, but as they approached the camp at Ligonier they veered their course so as to approach from the southwest and gave battle at once on their arrival. They undoubtedly approached from this direction rather than from the west, to more thoroughly surprise the camp. The French made but little impression on the army during the four hours¿ fighting in the afternoon. They renewed the attack after nightfall, but Colonel Burd stormed the woods in which the French and Indians were concealed, with shells from the mortars, and they were soon glad to retreat. That Burd and his army did not follow them up and capture them is evidence that they were well satisfied to allow them to retreat. Yet Forbes¿ army with its provisions had not arrived, and the commissary may have been too weak to support a captured army. The loss in the army of Ligonier was twelve killed and fifty-five wounded. The loss in the French army is not known, and the small loss to the British is perhaps why the accounts of the battle are so meager.

 A letter written by Captain Burd to his wife, the original of which is now in the possession of the Historical Society at Philadelphia, may be of interest here. It is as follows

Camp at Loyalhanna, 14 October, 1758

My Dear Love:
I have just time to acquaint you that the French army, consisting of 1200 French and 200 Indians commanded by Monsr. De Vitri attacked me on Thursday, the 12th, at 11 A.M. with great fury until 3 P.M., at which time I had the pleasure to see victory to the British Army I had the honor to command. The enemy attempted on the night of the 12th to attack me a second time, but in return for their most unmelodious Indian music, I gave them a number of shells from our mortars which made them retreat soon. Our loss on this occasion is only 63 men and officers, killed, wounded and missing. We have only buried ___ of our dead and six of the enemies.

Hi Roberta, My name is Greg Moore.  I am currently researching my Moore family from Mason County, Kentucky and Champaign County, Ohio.

I have a John Moore and Sarah Carter whom married in Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky in 1802. John and Sarah`s family moved to Champaign County, Ohio in 1806 with her father Caleb and brothers Levi, Israel and Benjamin Carter. John Moore and Sarah had 7 children, Samuel, James, Nancy, Harvey, John Sherman, Isaac, and John Harvey Moore. While living in Champaign County, John Sr. died in 1813.

He traveled to Ross County, Ohio for supplies, but never returned. His wagon was found, but John and his horses were never seen again. It is speculated he was overcome by Indians.

Some of the children later appeared in Adams and Brown Counties Ohio in 1830. The family was split up and the only ones to stay in Champaign County with the Carter`s were Harvey and John Harvey Moore Jr.

It appears to me that John may have had some of his family living in Adams County, which many Moore`s were living. Some of these Moore`s were the descendants of Aaron Moore who may have been your George`s cousins.

Aaron Moore was one son of George Moore and Elizabeth Lucas of Prince George County, Maryland. George and Elizabeth had sons George Jr., Aaron, Simeon, John and Ezekiel. Aaron died in Fayette County, PA, Simeon died in Mercer County, Kentucky, John died in Fayette County, PA., and Ezekiel died in Ross County, Ohio.

This was a very large Moore family, and the only info I`m missing is on George Moore Jr. I have records of all these Moore`s serving in Captain Joseph Chaplin`s Co. from Frederick County, Maryland, during the French and Indian War.

Do you know if your George was the grandson of George and Elizabeth Lucas?

Sarah Carter`s brothers moved to Union County, Ohio after the War of 1812. Her father Caleb Carter died in Mechanicsburg, Champaign County, in 1828.

John Moore and the Carter brothers served in the War of 1812 from Champaign County.

Anyway, my Moore family was in Mason County, Kentucky and Champaign County, Ohio the same time your George Moore family were in these areas. My John Harvey Moore Jr. died in Pulaski County, Indiana in 1880, right next to Jasper and Fulton Counties in Indiana. Obviously there were many Moore families traveling these routes.

I have been trying to track down these families for Years. I have ruled out connections to many of these families, but feel there may be a connection to your George Moore family. I do not know the birth date of my John or who his parents were, but guess about 1777 to 1782. Sarah Carter was born in 1785.

I would love to send you my family info. Let me know what you think. I would love to compare notes. There was also another Moore family living very close to your George Moore in Logan County, Ohio. William and Robert Moore sons of John Moore and Ann McCreary from Fayette County, Pa. William Moore came to Champaign County, in 1799 and settled near Springfield. He later moved north and his son Thomas bought Caleb Carter`s land in Mechanicsburg in 1828.

I have not found any connection to this family, just coincidences. Some of them lived in Union Township, Logan County, and later moved to Union County, close to my family.

48. Jonathan10 Prather (Col. Thomas MaKay Sprigg9, Thomas Makay8, Jonathan7, Thomas6, Thomas5, Anthony Thomas4, George3, John2, William1), born 1730 in Prince George's, MD; died 1772 in Bedford or Henry County, Virginia.  He married in 1750 in Frederick Co., Maryland Elizabeth Cresap, born 1730 in Frederick Co., Maryland.

 Children of Jonathan Prather and Elizabeth Cresap were as follows:
 91 i Archibald11 Prather, born 1755 in Pa near Henry County, Virginia; died 9 Feb 1831 in Magoffin County, Kentucky.   Notes: Archibald Prater served in the Revolutionary War. He signed the Oath of Allegiance in Henry County, VA, on 1-3-1777. He entered the Rev War 9-11-1780 for 1 year and 6 months.

He was a farmer. Archibald stood about 6'2 1/2", had blue eyes and fair complexion. His bother, Johnathan, was of similar build and description, and also served in the Revolutionary War at the same time from Henry County, VA.

Archibald Prater had first come down from Pittsylvania to Russell County where he met Sarah, daughter of Josiah and Elizabeth Fugate. She was born in Frederick County, but had come with her parents several years before to Montgomery County, later to Russell County. Archibald, on a few months out of the Continental Army, married her in Montgomery County.

In 1791, Prater and possible his brother, Jonathan, associating themselves with Ebenezer Hanna, Clayton Cook, and perhaps a few others, went by way of Cumberland Gap and across country to the head of Licking, looking for a place to settle. That was before Wayne's victory at Fallen Timbers. Wandering bands of Indians forced them either to retreat back to Virginia or plunge deeper into Kentucky. They decided on Kentucky.

This little group found a place in the present Nicholas County, then Bourbon. Here they stayed four years but they were still intrigued with the site on the upper reaches of the Licking, with its fertile soil and abundant game. They were waiting the inevitable time when the Indians would be forced to abandon a section there. They built a fort in 1800 on the low hill where a spring was located. Selection of the site was considered necessary as a precaution against Indians, for they were not satisfied that Wayne's victory had completely subjugated the savages. But they were never destined to use the fort. Nearby settles referred to the place as Licking Station, although the inhabitants of the small settlement called it Prater's Fort.

Archibald and his wife Sarah were two of the few settlers of Licking Station who came forward to become members of the new Burning Springs church in 1810. Arhcibald Prater is buried on the grounds of the old Magoffin Baptist Institue site.
 

50. Henry Abrams (Lt)10 Prather (Col.

WILLIAM HANNAH SERVED AS A CAPTAIN IN THE WAR OF 1812.
He raised a volunteer company and served as its captain.
A family story has been handed down that while the troops were in camp and mustering at Manchester, Ohio, a deer was seen on the Kentucky shore of the Ohio River. Since
he was a good marksman, William Hannah was challenged to shoot the deer across the
great distance. he aimed at a mark across the river about ten feet above the deer. The
ball fell and broke the deer's back. The deer was then brought across the river in a canoe
and shared with his friends.
about 1815 Went to Cabin Creek, where he conducted a ferry on the Ohio River.
1 Nov. 1827 After 12 years at Cabin Creek, he returned to Libery Twp. and purchased 400 acres, all in woods, at Hill's Fork. He purchased from Andrew Ellison 400 acres, part of 798
acres on Eagle Creek, Liberty Twp., Adams County, Ohio--and then antoher 400 acres
on Hill's Fork, lying northeast of Fairview.
(Without reviewing the records, it is unclear whether there were two 400-acre parcels
or one described differently.)

In 1900, his great-grandson, David Hannah, still owned 134 of these acres, all cultivated.
At that time, David Hannah also owned the sword that belonged to William Hannah.

23 May 1853 His executor, Aaron Hannah, deeded to Patterson Hannah 137 acres at Hill's Fork, Adams
County, Ohio.

William Hannah had 11 children, none of whom were still living in 1900. His grandsons were living in Adams County in 1900: Joseph Hannah and David M. Hannah of Hill's Fork, Aaron Moore of Winchester.

The title to said lands was to be vested in a Board of Trustees composed of Nathaniel Beasley, William Marshall, Salathiel Sparks, Aaron Moore, Benjamin Wood, William Collings and John Briggs. This board was required to appoint a Clerk and surveyor, and to proceed to lay off lots with convenient streets for the new town to be named West Union, and to make and record a plat of the same. Notice of the sale of lots was required to be published for thirty days in the Scioto Gazette, of Chillicothe. The county commissioners were empowered to dispose of county property at Washington. When the number of lot owners reached thirty, they were required to meet and elect a new Board of Trustees to succeed the board appointed by the act. Members of the Board were elected annually thereafter.

Missing the stidck he was attempting to cut and striking his left foot cutting the second tow off at the first joint and cutting the third, fourth, and fifth toes off entirely. He further states that he was discharged from Co. "G" 182 Regt. Ohio Inf.
