Ann Moore (1710-1783) was born Ann Harbut or Herbert on November 16, 1710 in Pennsylvania. According to an account made by the Friends of Gunpowder Monthly Meeting, Moore’s mother died shortly after her birth and she was placed among Friends. Moore married Walter Moore, who was later disowned or resigned from the Society of Friends. The couple had four children, their birthdates are unknown. Moore was recognized as a minister in 1738, and traveled throughout the American colonies in that capacity. In 1760-1761, while en route to Great Britain, Moore’s ship was taken captive and carried to Spain. In 1778, Moore traveled through Pennsylvania and New York, passing through military lines. Moore died on November 11, 1783 in Baltimore at the age of 73.
