Notes for William A. MOORE

Biographical Sketch (1894):1164, p. 265. "William A. Moore. Few of the farmers of Burlington Township enjoy a more extended acquaintance throughout Licking County than does the subject of this sketch, an efficient, capable and enterprising agriculturist, whose life occupation has been that which he still successfully follows. He owns and operates a valuable estate consisting of one hundred and twenty acres, upon which he engages in general farming. The land contains first-class improvements, including a substantial set of farm buildings, and the soil has been placed under a high state of cultivation.

Of the parents of our subject, V. R. and Mary (Butcher) Moore, mention is made in the sketch of the former, presented on another page. William A., the only son, was born in Delaware, June 1, 1853, and received an excellent education in the district school and the Homer High School. Being a thoughtful reader and a man of unusual intelligence, he has added to his fund of knowledge by self culture, and is intelligently posted upon all topics of local or general importance.

On the 25th of September, 1876, William A. Moore was united in marriage with Miss Alice, daughter of the late Alex and Martha Iles, of Bennington Township, Licking County. One child blessed this union, Grace, who resides with her grandparents, and is now (1894) a student in college. In March of 1883, the wife and mother was called from earth. Mr. Moore was again married in June 1885, choosing as his wife Miss Elizabeth Yoakam, an estimable and cultured lady, who was educated in the Homer High School. She is a daughter of M. W. and Esther Yoakam, a prominent family in Burlington Township.

In politics, Mr. Moore is active, being recognized as a leader among the Republicans of his township. Frequently he has been chosen to serve as a delegate to county conventions, and has also represented his party in numerous local positions of trust. He believes the principles of the Republican party are the best adapted to promote the welfare and material prosperity of the people, and consequently gives to them his loyal and enthusiastic support. In his social connections he affiliates with the Masonic fraternity, belonging to Licking Lodge No. 291, in which he has held the office of Junior Warden. He and his wife hold membership in the Methodist Episcopal Church at Home, the services of which they regularly attend, and to the support of which they generously contribute."
