  • Notes 
    • Robert was on the 1790 Federal Census in PA, nothing on the 1800 Federal but was on the 1810 Census. He had 4 sons under 10, and 1x daughter under 10, this was in Huntingdon Co., Barre Twp, PA. He was dropped from the tax rolls in 1813. He received a land patent in Jefferson Co., OH in 1816. The County of Carroll in OH was made up of 5 different counties about 1840 and Robert ended up in Carroll Co., Rose Twp. His sons Nathan and James H helped clear some of the land after the other children left. Nathan died in 1828, leaving 3 children four and under. William King was their guardian and brought a law suit against Robert Moffett for labor that Nathan had done on Robert's land with the promise from Robert that Nathan would receive half of a quarter and James the other half. This suit was in Stark Co at Canton, OH. They sued for $1000.00 but received $218.75. In 1839 another suit was brought against Robert, James, and Sarah after the land had been sold to another man. There are 45 pages of transcript from the suit, but in the end Robert won out. William King was a brother of Nathan's wife, Sarah King Moffett. Could not find anything on Ann Ferguson except that she died between 1828 and 1839. In our search for the Moffett's, we have found about six different spellings between fathers and sons. We find this on their stones in cemeteries where they are buried side by side. These are some of the spellings: Moffett, Maffit, Maffet, Moffit, Maffitt, Maffett. Many of the Maffetts in this area are the descendants of William Maffett, son of Henry, who moved from Loudoun Co., VA to Ohio with his family (see lineage of Everett L. Maffett, ID No.3) [1]
