I remember the list discussions regarding the " Sinclair Nose " etc . and was
wandering if the trait mentioned in the following letter is noticed in any of
the Sinclair groups ???
For the information of other list members , the area mentioned in located in
the Eastern USA .
"""I'm trying to trace my Charles Moore, who was
born in Pennsylvania, probably somewhere near the
PA/MD/DE border. He was born in 1859 to Thomas
But we've got a discussion going on the Moore
list. It seems like just about every Moore on the
list along routes of migration people followed
from Pennsylania, have crooked little fingers -
as does my father. This is a genetic trait
common in the Scotch Irish, but it seems to be
hitting a group of Moore's with unusual
frequency. It seems to predate the Revolutionary
War in teh lines in runs in, and there are too
many cases on the list for a common ancestor not
to be pretty far back. That ancestor would have
had to have been in Pennsylvania as early as
Andrew Moore was. """
