      The Rev. John Moore . . . genealogy says that Samuel Moore and Elizabeth Reed had eight children:

      36. Captain Samuel3, b. Newtown, L. I., m. Apr. 1, 1705, Charity Hallett3, (Capt. William2, William1, b. in England, 1616), b. Mar. 16, 16S5 ; he d. Jan. 3. 1758 (will). [44]

      . . .

      36. Capt. Samuel Moore3 (Capt. Samuel2, Rev. John1) and Charity Hallet3 (Captain William2, m. Sarah Woolsey (George), William1).

      Captain Samuel Moore3 occupied the farm later owned by Samuel B. Townsend. The land is described under Captain Samuel Moore2 [4]

      Charity Hallet3 was the daughter of Captain William Hallett2 and Sarah Woolsey2, his wife, daughter of George Woolsey1, of Jamaica, L. I. William Hallett2 occupied the part of his father's farm south of the road which later formed Greenoak, Welling, Main Streets and Newtown Avenue. He served as Justice and was Captain of a foot company. His brother, Samuel Hallett, lived on the opposite side of the road. She was the sister of Sarah Hallett, who married Rev. George Phillips,* of Brookhaven, and of William Hallett who, with his wife Ruth and five children, was murdered January 24, 1708, by two slaves. The case is remarkable on account of the dreadful tortures to which the murderers were put, and also on account of the law which was passed, entitled "An act for preventing the conspiracy of Slaves." She was the granddaughter of William Hallett1 and ___ ___, who was born in Dorsetshire, England, in 1616, came to America, helped to found Greenwich, Ct., afterward removed to Long Island and bought a large property at Hellgate. In 1655 his house at Hallett's Cove was destroyed by the Indians, after which he removed to Flushing. In 1656 he was appointed Sheriff, but on account of his entertaining Rev. William Wickenden from Rhode Island was deposed by Governor Stuyvesant. On the revolt of Long Island against the Dutch, Mr. Hallett naturally advocated the claims of Connecticut. He was sent as a delegate to the General Court of Connecticut, and was appointed Commissioner for Flushing. He returned to Hellgate and died there at the age of 90. Rev. Thomas Foyer's Register contains the record : "Samuel Moor, Jr., and Charity, his wife, baptised August 6, 1713, at Hell Gate."

      Ref:

      "In 1701, Captain Moore conveyed the property to his two eldest sons, Samuel and Joseph Moore.

      Samuel Moore took the southern part of the farm lying near the Bowery Bay Road and Train's Meadow in present-day Woodside. He is thought to have built the now demolished farmhouse, east of Bowery Bay Road which later passed to S. B. Townsend . In 1705 Samuel Moore married Charity Hailett, of the wealthy landowning family for whom Hallett's Cove is named. They had ten children, some of whom settled in the village of Newtown and some of whom moved to New Jersey or Pennsylvania."

      Burial here per:

      "The earliest recorded family burials appear to have been those of Charity Moore [CxM, 1753] and Samuel Moore [Samuel Moore, died Jan. 2, 1768], both of whom were commemorated by rough slab upright fieldstones which are no longer identifiable."
