Biography of Charles H. Moore
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Moore, Charles Henry, was born in Manlius, Onondaga county, September 5, 1818, the son of Dr. Henry B., and Nancy (Ewers) Moore. At the age of fourteen Charles left home and went to live with his grandfather, the latter then being a prominent contractor on the Genesee Valley Canal. About 1843 Mr. Moore came to Albion and for about two years engaged in mercantile pursuits, but his former connection with contracting work soon impelled him in that direction, and with such enterprises he was afterward identified during his long and successful business career. He built the Central road through Orleans county, and later was engaged in the widening of the Erie Canal. He was on the Great Western Railroad in Canada, and also on the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri. Mr. Moore was a successful and extensive contractor. In 1859 he was associated with George M. Pullman in moving buildings along the canal and together they went to Chicago, and engaged in raising buildings for several years. He also carried on mining operations in Colorado for a time. After an active business life Charles H. Moore died in Albion August 4, 1893. His wife whom he married September 11, 1841, was Marcia, daughter of Micah Harrington, and they had two children: Julia Louise, who married Lorenzo Burrows October 11, 1864; Alice Kidder, who died in 1862. Mr. Moore was a conservative Democrats and a regular attendant and supporter of the Episcopal Church. Lorenzo Burrows and wife had four children: Charles Moore, a physician of Chicago; Lorenzo, jr., a physician and eye specialist of Saginaw, Mich.; Henry Lord, who died at four years, and Lynn Moore.
