1837, George Moore Jr. was dead and the lawsuits involving his 2 sets of children had begun. A chancery suit regarding the division of land in Lansdown vs Lansdown provides us with a list of his and Rosanna’s children; James Moore, William Dodson and Elizabeth, Paul Marshall and Polly, and Rose Moore, 1/5 share (to be split among them).

The Present Alexander Co. NC (formed 1846) where Elder William Dodson spent his latter years was composed of the older counties of Iredell, Wilkes and Burke. The Central portion of Alexander Co. has had a checkered history because the three older counties met there between 1789 to 1841 and the county lines between these three counties shifted back and forth.
