The Rodeham Moore Descendants Association

Organized nationally in the fall of 1997, we are an association of family descendants from the 18th century  marriage of Rodeham Moore (1744-1811) and Elizabeth Gallahue (Moore) (ca 1752-1825).

 Rodeham and Elizabeth were married about 1769, and lived most of their married life in southern Patrick County, Virginia near Archie’s Creek, a tributary of the Dan River, as well as in adjoining Surry County, North Carolina.  Rodeham’s Grist Mill along Archie’s Creek at the state line was used in the early 1800’s as the corner boundary for the establishment of Surry & Stokes Counties, and its foundation ruins are still visible within a few yards of the modern surveyor’s corner marker along the bank of the creek today. It is estimated that around 1800, they owned upwards of 5,000 acres of  farmlands between the two counties.  They are known to have had (at least) eight children that grew to adulthood and had families of their own, bearing them over 80 known grandchildren. It is from this one great American couple that all of our 12,000+ family members descend.

 Membership in our Association is open to anyone that has an interest in this large American family and its history. Membership dues are US$ 25 per year, due in the Spring of each year.
