William Moore I, Bedford County, Pennsylvania gunsmith

Topic stub: The 1953 edition of Gluckman's "American Gun Makers" places a William Moore in Colerain Township of Bedford County in 1810, as a gunsmith who made flintlocks that carried the marking "W. Moore". The book raises the question whether he is the father of the gunsmith William Moore who was in Colerain Township in 1850. To distinguish between these individuals, I refer to them as William Moore I and William Moore II.

There was no William Moore in the transcript of the 1810 federal census of Colerain Township that I searched.

When I looked on September 13, 2020, there was no Bedford County memorial on findagrave.com for either William Moore.
