About Moses McIllvain
From "History of Rockbridge County":
Moses McElvain (McIllvain) located in this valley (Calfpasture Valley in Augusta County, VA) in 1763. While prospecting in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, in 1779, he was captured by Indians, but was released at the intercession of a trader by the name of McCormick, who had known Mcllvain in Ireland. Mcllvain married Margaret, a daughter of Samuel Hodge, of the Calfpasture, and settled anew in Woodford county, Kentucky.
