and spent his boyhood days on a farm. When 21 years old he left the parental
roof and came to Bellville and learned the tailor trade. A few years later he
was married to Rachel LeFevre, who with two daughters, survive him. Mr. M.
went to California shortly after marriage and remained 18 months. On leaving
that state he returned to Bellville, which he afterwards made his home. He was
engaged in the livery business at the time the Civil War broke out, and in
1864 enlisted in the army for one year, receiving an honorable discharge at
Charlotte, N.C., June 29th., 1865. He came home from the service in defense of
his country somewhat broken down and disturbed in mind. From this condition he
never rallied, and his life forces wasted away. Kidney affection, is assigned
as the immediate cause of his death. Mr. Moore was an active, upright citizen
in his younger days, commanding the respect and esteem of his fellow men.
