In gathering the data contained in this book no effort was made to preserve or note the various ways of spelling names. The name "Moore" sometimes appears in one record spelled in several different ways, as "M-o-r-e," "M-o-a-r," or "M-o-o-r" but in most instances the correct spelling is clearly shown as

Dates, given names, names of executors, witnesses, etc., are given as being as nearly correct as is practical. In many instances the records are faded, worn or soiled so that the figures or names could not be well deciphered.

The data was all taken from original records, and publication of book and page, or box and package reference would make the expense prohibitive. Such information may be obtained by addressing the author, enclosing 25c each for postage and clerical expense (NOTE: unfortunately at this date, 2011, the writer may no longer be living, thus a shame the reference information was not given).

Marriages, Revolutionary service, and other information on the Moores of South Carolina may be found in the South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine and in the publications of the South Carolina Historical Commission.
