Obituary of JAMES H. MOORE
Death of James H. Moore

James H. Moore was born in Otsego county, New York, December 1st, 1818, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. B. Cortrite, southeast of this city, July 23rd, 1899. Mr. Moore was twice married, and was the father of nine children. Both companions and three of the children had “gone before.” Mr. Moore moved from New York, to Michigan, and from there to Missouri, and from the latter state to Kansas four years ago. Since moving to Kansas he has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. B. Cortrite. Father Moore was not known to many of our citizens, as he was aged and quite a sufferer, he was not often away from home. He was a good man; lived to a ripe old age; had finished his work, and died in peace, and had left gracious memories behind. Father Moore had been a member of the Methodist church for thirty years. The funeral services were held at Pratt school house on the South Side, where a large congregation had gathered to pay their respects to the departed. The remains were laid away in the Pratt cemetery.
