Biography of Sidney W. Moore
Madison County, NY Biographies





Moore, Sidney W., son of Eli G. and Adeline (Weaver) Moore, was born in the town of Stockbridge, this county, October 6, 1859. His grandfather, Eh Moore, was a native of Union, Conn., and removed thence to Stockbridge among the earliest settlers, driving an ox team and bringing his young wife, Rebecca (Gail) Moore, and their son, Eli G. They located at Valley Mills, near the Lenox line on the farm now owned by Mr. Moore, and which has never been deeded out of the possession of the family. Sidney W. Moore was educated in the district schools in the vicinity of his home and at Whitestown Seminary. When eighteen years old he went west but returned in two years, and for six years following remained at home. In 1883 he went to Lyons, N. Y. to engage in the drug business with Dr. C. A. Moore under the firm name of Moore & Moore. He retired from active interest in this firm in 1892, having become interested in the manufacture of silverware in Lyons. In 1893 he removed his plant to Oswego, N Y., where he sold out the following year and came to Oneida. He at once organized the Oneida Silverware Manufacturing Company with a capital stock of $10,000, (afterwards increased to $50,000,) and erected the present building and plant of the company. Mr. Moore acts as president and manager of the corporation, which manufactures a full line of silver plated ware, employing upwards of seventy five people, and is rapidly increasing its trade and output. Mr. Moore married in 1884, Nellie S. Baker, daughter of D. C. Baker of Fulton, N. Y. Of this union are two sons: Alfred D. and S. Gail.
