30 Years and Here They Are!

Since my last post today, a comment was sent regarding Barnet VANDERVORT and Elizabeth HENRY!

Yes, yeppers, yesirreeeeee!!!

I am most certainly talking about Barnet VANDERVORT b. 1777 in NY and d. 1871 Muskingum Co, OH. His wife, Elizabeth, was b. 1778 on her father's farm which is located in what is now Allegheny Co, PA. Elizabeth died and is buried with Barnet in Muskingum Co, OH. And somewhere around here is a picture of their tombstone!

I have been told by another descendant of theirs I made contact with 2 years ago that they had 10 children. So far, I have only documented four of them.


So, please allow me to tell you that it truly is never too late to look for your roots. And I'm happy to say someone else in my blood line has contracted the genealogy virus!!

Cousin of my Irish blood--- I can't wait to share the family with you.

My great great grandaughter was Cynthia Vandervort b. 1822, daughter of Barnet and Elizabeth. She first married Samuel Walker in 1844. They had a daughter, Mary Cynthia, b. abt 1848. Samuel probably died, although I haven't confirmed that. Cynthia then married my great great grandfather Theodore Washington MOORE in 1852 in Muskingum Co. OH. They had 5 sons and 1 daughter. I have photos of Cynthia and their children. Her father Barnet lived with them and their first child was named Barnet Vandervort Moore. My email address is

I evidently didn't proofread this when I firs wrote it. Cynthia was my great great grandmother.
