Moses' surname was recorded with each spelling of Dameron and Damron.  Most of his children and descendants used DAMRON.

He inherited his father's estate on Red Bank and Damron Creek, Albemarle County, Virginia. His plantation was near Scottsville, Virginia, not far from Peter Jefferson's plantation on the James River. Peter Jefferson was the father of Thomas Jefferson. Peter had purchased this property from Noble Ladd.

Moses was involved in a land transaction recorded in Russell County deed records, page 1: "13 June 1786 James OSBURN and Mary, his wife, to Moses DAMRON for 100#, ...230A on waters of Clinch River ...from original patent to OSBURN dated 5 Jul 1785. Filed: 13 June 1787 ss: James Osburn Mary Osburn"
Birth:        ca __ ___ 1735   Albemarle Co., Virginia.
Marriage:  ca __ ___ 1755
Death:       ca __ ___ 1812   Russell or Grayson Co., Virginia.
Father:      Lazarus Dameron (b. ca 1690, d. after 29 Sep 1748)
Mother:    Elizabeth Smith     (         , d. before 1749)
Spouse: Aggie/Aggy Owl
Name-Marr:  Aggie Dameron or Aggie Damron
Her name was reported to be Aggie or Aggy Owl in a biographical sketch of a grandson, Samuel Damron, Sr., in the CEREDO ADVANCE, Ceredo, WV, 1 April 1896. Genealogical researches have not located a family with that surname in the area where she lived but did find the name Ogle. There was a Howl family although that may have been a misspelling of Howell. It is also possible that the name could have been Yowell.  This record will recognize Owl as her surname until proof of it being something else appears.  There are those that claim that she
was Cherokee but offer no evidence.  Her parents have yet to be identified.
