Biography of David Moore
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Moore, David, was a native of Westmoreland, England, and came to America in 1834 and settled in the town of Murray at Hulburton. He was a stone mason by trade and has always followed that business. He married a Miss Clowdsdale, and their children were as follows: Sarah, who married Barzilla Richmond and settled in Wisconsin; Elizabeth, who married William Tyson and settled in the same State; Martha, who married Edward Reed; Margaret, who married Lorenzo D. Clark; Isabella, who married James D. Bums; Rev. David Moore, D. D., of Geneva; James, a former of Hulburton, who married Miss F. L. Laverick, and John, who was born September 18, 1828. Mr. John Moore learned the mason's trade, but in 1862, in company with George Over, engaged in the mercantile trade at Hulburton, which has since been his business. This partnership existed for one year, Mr. Over then disposing of his interest to Alfred J. Squires. Two years later Mr. Squires retired from the firm and Thomas S. Reed became the partner of Mr. Moore, continuing for eight years, when Mr. Moore's son, Frank, acquired his interest, and the firm still exists as J. Moore & Son. Mr. John Moore is a strong Republican and has held office as collector for several years and was appointed postmaster at Hulburton during Lincoln's first administration, and held that office continually until Cleveland's election in 1884. Mr. Moore is a member of Holley Lodge, I. O. O. F. In 1850 he married Rosepha Brockway, of Murray, and they were the parents of these children: J. Frank, Gussie, Clark W. and three who died in infancy. Mr. Frank is also a Republican and was postmaster during Harrison's administration. He married Emma, daughter of Samuel D. Copeland, of Hulburton, in 1873; and to them were born the following children: Frank C., Gussie M., Fannie B., John (deceased), and Alice R.
