MOORE, FRANCIS (?–?). Francis Moore, sometimes confused with Francis Moore, Jr., was a landowner in Brazoria County as early as 1830. He joined the Texas army, probably in October 1835, and participated in the siege of Bexar. His daughter, Harriet Moore, was married to Solomon C. Page, then to Robert Potter, and finally to Charles Ames (see AMES, HARRIET).
