Augustus Moore

M, #5614, b. circa 1838, d. between 1862 and Nov 1864
     Augustus Moore was born circa 1838 in GA.1

Augustus Moore married Martha A. Lasseter on 10 Feb 1859 in Decatur Co., GA.2 Augustus Moore was enumerated as Head of Household in the census of 1860 in Decatur Co., GA, with others in the household: Martha A. Lasseter.1

The Augustus Moore who died intestate in Decatur Co., GA, was not the Augustus Moore who died in Thomas Co. 9 Oct 1863. Decatur Co. appointed Moore's widow, Martha A., administrator. After Martha married John Cameron on 4 Jun 1865, John Cameron was appointed administrator in her place on 18 Dec 1865. According to the 1860 and 1870 censuses, Augustus and Martha had two daughters, Nancy/Annie in 1860, and Emma in 1863. Nancy/Annie was with them in 1860 in Decatur Co. and Emma was with Martha and John Cameron in 1870, also in Decatur Co.

So the Augustus Moore in the 1860 census, age 17, in Thomas Co., with parents, B[enning] B. and Antonia Moore is not this same Augustus. He is probably the one who died of wounds in the CSA in Thomas Co. on 9 Oct 1863.1

Augustus Moore died between 1862 and Nov 1864 in Decatur Co., GA.3

Martha A. Lasseter was named administrator of Augustus Moore's estate on 7 Nov 1864 in Decatur Co., GA. He died intestate.4

John Cameron was named administrator of Augustus Moore's estate on 18 Dec 1865 in Decatur Co., GA. Cameron took on the role of administrator after marrying Augustus's widow, Martha Lasseter.5
