  • Notes 
    • Lived in Bloomington, Monroe Co, IN. Donald Owen Moffett (ID 730) submits 1802 and 1868 as the dates of John's birth and death, respectively. Also note change of spelling from "Moffatt" to "Moffett" It should be noted, however, that Donald's submission identified his ancestor, John (who married Letitia "Letty" Strong) as the son of William & Barbara Chestnut Moffatt. This John was the son of Samuel and Polly Curry Moffatt, who established Line I as defined in J.R. Moffatt's history. On page 24 of his publication, J.R.M. noted that John lived in Bloomington, Indiana. [Source 1]
