MOSES CUSHENBERRY was born Abt 1720-1740 in Virginia. Research continues to his parents and siblings. He married ANN unknown. He died Bef May 1792 in [[Bourbon County, Kentucky]]. He left no will, and the court oversaw the estate in May 1792. It was recorded in Bourbon County in June 1792. Administration of Moses estate was given to his wife, ANNE QUISENBERRY, who came to court and qualified with Nicholas Lindsay, her son-in-law, and WILLIAM QUESENBERRY, her securities. There was a problem with the estate and it was advertised in the Kentucky Gazette 15 September 1800, Bourbon County, Kentucky. This is this Marianne Dillow's 5th great grandparents.
The first record on Moses in Kentucky was in January 1783 where he signed a petition entitled, " West Side of Laurel Mountains Inhabitants to the President of the Continental Congress," which was a plea for the formation of a new state. Moses name was spelled Cussinberry.
It has been believed by Marianne Dillow and other cousins that have done research on Moses that he descends from the Quisenberry family of Virginia. After many years this has not been proven although they were in the same locations and time periods and knew the same people.
MOSES was also listed on 25 August 1786 signing the "Petitions of the Early Inhabitants of Kentucky to the General Assembly of Virginia." His sons, Elijah, John, and Vinson (Vincent) Cushenberry also signed the document. One of the Trustees was Daniel Boone. The petition was to establish the town of Washington, Mason County, Kentucky.
On 19 September 1787, the settlers of Limestone addressed their second petition to Virginia asking for a division of Bourbon County, Kentucky. It was signed by Daniel Boone, Jacob Boone, Miles Conway, Moses Cushenberry and Simon Kenton. Moses purchased 16 1/2 acres in the town of Washington, then in Bourbon County, but now in Mason County, Kentucky.
Military Experiences: "Index to Military Certificates, 1787 , Etc., Register of the Kentucky Historical Society," listed CRUZENBERRY, M. and CRUZENBERRY, E. This was war records under the Laws of Virginia. Military Cetificates No. 1, and on the fly-leaf is inscribed, " Certificates of Military Service performed in 1787 &c. under The Laws of Virginia, a majority of these Certificates were issued for services performed during Clarke's and Logan's expeditions of 1786 and 1787. it is evident that a few at least were for previous service.
Moses was in tax lists in Bourbon County, Kentucky with those of the Traveling Church which came from the area of Orange and Spotsylvania Counties in Virginia. Moses and Ann attended Bryan Station's Church; Cooper's Run Baptist Church, David's Fork of Elkhorn Church around in and before 1790, etc. Some of the children of Moses and Ann were also in deeds in Fayette County, Kentucky before they removed to Warren and Allen County counties in Kentucky.
MOSES CUSHENBERY (1720-1740 - May 1792) should not be confused with Moses Quisenberry, son of Aaron Quisenberry and Joyce Dudley, as that Moses is younger than Moses Cushenberry born Abt 1720-1740 time frame in Virginia that married Ann unknown and whose estate was dated May 1792 in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
