Hannah (Chamberlin) Moore

On this day, 14 July 1848, Hannah (Chamberlin) Moore passed away in Waretown, New Jersey. She was my 4th great-grandmother.

Born on 6 March 1814, in Forked River, Monmouth County, New Jersey, Hannah Chamberlin was the daughter of James Woodmansee Chamberlin and Rebecca Rulon.

At the time of her birth, Hannah was one of 11 children born to James and Rebecca Chamberlin (some of whom had already died): Thomas, born in 1799; Mary, born in 1800; David R., born in 1801; Benoni, born in 1803; Louis, born in 1805; Reuben, born in 1806; Isaiah, born circa 1807; Reuben W., born circa 1809; Mercy, born in 1811; Joseph, born 12 May 1812.

On 10 February 1816, brother James Madison Chamberlin was welcomed to the family.

Two years later, on 24 March 1818, Francis Woodmansee Chamberlin was born Forked River, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

On 22 December 1820, sister Rebecca Chamberlin arrived.

In 1823, another sister, Phebe Chamberlin, was born.

In 1830, when she was 16 years old, Hannah and her family were living in Dover Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey. Residing in the household were two males age five to under 10, one male age 10 to 15 (Francis), two males age 20 to 30 (Reuben W. and Joseph), one male age 40 to 50 (father James), one female under the age of five, one female age five to under 10 (Phebe), two females ages 15 to 20 (Rebecca and Hannah), and one female age 40 to 50 (mother Rebecca).

Seven years later, Hannah left her parents’ home and married Scottish immigrant, George Moore. The couple wed on 14 November 1837, in Toms River, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

The next year, in 1838, Hannah and George welcomed their first child, a son whom they named Elwood W. Moore.

Sadly, two years later, Hannah’s father James Woodmansee Chamberlin died in April 1840, in Forked River, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

Later that year (1840), the George Moore family was enumerated in Dover Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey. Living in the household was one free white male under the age of five (Elwood), one free white male age 20 to 30 (George), and one free white female age 20 to 30 (Hannah).

Daughter Rebecca Ann Moore (my 3rd great-grandmother) was born the next year in 1841 in Waretown, Monmouth County, New Jersey (now a part of Ocean County).

Son George W. Moore followed two years later in 1843.

Then, on 26 March 1844, Hannah’s final child, son James Chamberlin Moore, was born in Dover Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

Tragically, Hannah (Chamberlin) Moore’s life was cut short when she died on 14 July 1848, in Waretown, New Jersey. She was only aged 34 years, four months, and eight days. Her grieving husband, George Moore, buried her in the Old Waretown Presbyterian Cemetery.
