23. Moses RATCLIFF was born about 1725 in Talbot County, Maryland. He died in 1810 at the age of 85 in Robeson, North Carolina.
Moses probably married Mary Farmer, duaghter of Henry & Sarah (Ward) Farmer and granddaughter of Elizabeth (Elam) Ward. They did name a son Elam. Henry & Sarah Farmer appear to have had daughters named Mary and Ann (wife of John Ratcliff) - but Henry Farmer died in Chesterfield VA in 1753 - there is no indication his family was ever in North Carolina for his daughters to meet and marry the Ratcliff brothers.
He appears in the Johnston Co NC deeds, 1754 and on the Dobbs Co NC tax list, 1769. Their children were Aaron, Moses Jr., Abraham, Benjamin, Shaham, Elam, Rebecca, and Redden/Riding.
1769, List of Taxables, Dobbs Co, North Carolina, he had 4 slaves.
Moses family seems to have had little research - I have found no proof for his children - most databases show no daughter Rebecca and she seems a little young to have in this family.
Moses RATCLIFF and Mary FARMER had the following children:
