Monroe Family of Moore County NC

Malcolm Monroe (1773-1853) is the first well-documented ancestor in this line. The name of his first wife is unknown; his second wife (m. 1801) was Margaret Black. Malcolm and Margaret moved from Moore Co. NC to Talledega Co. AL, as did most of their children. This page focuses on descendants of their son John Monroe, who remained in NC.
