  • Notes 
    • DOC:Birth, death, and marriage dates from Jeremiah's Bible now in possession of his children. Jeremiah Nimrod inherited (in trust for 25 years for his children then to go to Jeremiah) from his father Richard T. Moffett, 123 acres of Palmers Hazzard and Chester Grove, where his (Jeremiah) children were born and raised. This land, so Richard stated in his will," at one time belonged to my father Enoch." When Chester Grove was sold several years after Enoch's death, it was bought by his son Richard T. Moffett in the year 1833. Before this in 1829 Richard had bought his brother Enoch's interest in Chester Grove. This farm lies about two miles from Chesterville, Md.
