  • Notes 
    • Enoch J. Moffett lived outside of Millington as shown on the map of Kent County dated 1877. Henry Tonkin who married Katherine H. Moffett (Enoch's daughter) was principal of Millington Academy and lived in Millington. Serveral deeds in Chestertown Court House mention Henry Tonkin as serveyor. Robert F. Moffett lived on a farm on the Millington Chesterville Road. The map also shows the farm of Jermiah N. Moffett,"Chester Grove" & "Palmer's Harzard" and W. E. Jarrell farm, "Flowers of the Forrest", and James J. Spear who married Sarah Elizabeth Moffett daughter of William Moffett and Lousia P. Ireland.

      Kent County News March 8, 1890
      "A city daily recently noted the death of one Richard Moffett in England,leaving an estate valued at fifty millions of dollars. It is said that the Moffett family of Kent county, of which Richard F., Jeremiah and Enoch Moffett are members, are directly connected with the deceased millionaire, and will possibly come in for a share of the immense estate. Our orphans court judge of that name would not object, we are sure, to the receipt of a cool million or two."
      The article from the Kent News dated April 30, 1892 about the murder of Dr. Hill in Millington mentions Enoch J. Moffett as a member of the Jury. The one dated July 16 1904 about the Millington Fire mentions some the places destroyed. Charles M. Hurtt, merchandise and Miss W. Moffett, Millinery.

      A little ditty on the business men of Millington written by Charles M. Hurtt in 1921:
      C. M. Hurtt, whose prices can't be beat.
      Has the best store on the street.
      Miss Willie Moffett, the milliner of style.
      Her hats and merchandise are well worth while.
      For a fine fall hat just give her a trial.
      R. W. Moffett, the fertilizer man.
      Sells the farmer good stuff for their land.
