JOSEPH A. MOORE, one of Tipton's enterprising men, was born in Wayne County, Ind. His father, Thomas Moore, removed his family, while Joseph was quite young, to Madison County, and settled near the Tipton County line. Here Mr. Moore grew to manhood. On attaining his majority he commenced the avocation of a farmer, which he followed until 1874. At first he purchased eighty acres of land, which he has so increased by judicious purchases from time to time, that he now owns 380 acres in Tipton and Madison Counties. In 1874, Mr. Moore was elected Clerk of the Tipton Circuit Court, which office he held for one term of four years. After his election, he removed to Tipton and has resided there ever since. After his term of office expired, he occupied his time by looking after his farm, and in partnership with Dr. Newcomer built the Opera House. After the completion of the Opera House (1879), he engaged in the drug business, on the south side of Jefferson street, near the post office, and continued in that business until February, 1883. when he sold out to J. C. F. Evans. Mr. Moore was married on the 26th of March, 1857, in Madison County, Ind., to Miss Angeline Armfield. The fruits of that marriage were two sons, Azroe F. and Asbury M. Moore. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and is politically a Democrat, by which party he has been honored with the highest office in the county. At present he is not engaged in any business except a general superintendence of his property.
