jn Per Biographical Sketch of Julia Moor, grandaughter:
..." Capt Moor was among the first to oppose British taxation and did much to arouse the almost universal feeling of indignation against the exactions of the Crown. He was among the number that made an assault upon the Point at Portsmouth and drove the soldiers stationed there out of it taking their arms and amunition and securing them to be used against them another day. Soon as the Lexington outrage reached Deerfield he was among the number determined to try at least to drive the enemy from our shores. Leaving his store and collecting what money he could for the occasion, he enlisted and marched to Charlestown sixty-two rank and file besides officers and non-com men. His Lt was Eben (Ebenezer) Frye; his ensign John Moor his brother's son (Ephraim??) At Charlestown he joined Stark's Regt and commanded the second company and first division in the memorable Battle of Bunker Hill on the morning of June 17th 1775....one of the first to be killed was his business partner, Andrew McCleary. They were side by side and McCleary put his hand on a fence post to leap over and was cut in two by a ball which struck him in the abdomen...Capt Moor could never forget the sight...
...Capt Moor took his eldest son Isaac from his home..he was young ..entered as a drummer..James a younger son he also took with him and being alarmed at the fury of the battle took to flight...rode to Deerfield with all possible dispatch and told his mother and friends that they were all killed for nothing could be seen but smoke, or heard but the roaring of the cannon...(Moor) was among the valiant men who marched with Arnold to Quebec..spent the winter there..returned in the spring...recovered from (smallpox)
...he was always troubled with lameness in one of his limbs from the probable effects of that dangerous disease...he joined the army..with Washington's troops in their march through New Jersey..at the Battles of Princeton ..and at Trenton.. (also) Battle of Bennington (VT)
After the War he returned to Deerfield, a broken down man, unable to perform any labor..a few years after...he went to Pembroke to his daughter, Mrs Nancy Moor where he died in 1829...Often General Stark visited him and they would recall the...War...he (Moor) would often visit Gen Stark at this home in Derry and they loved each other like brothers..."
