Moore, Stephen B. (30 APR 1845 - 1 FEB 1914)

Stephen B. Moore was born in Wellington Co., Ontario, April 30th, 1845 and died Feb. 1st, 1914, of chronic diabetes. He was the son of Cornelius and Lavina Moore, being one of a family of fourteen children, all of who are deceased. He received his education in the common schools of Ontario and in 1865 moved to Michigan City, Indiana. On June 25, 1867 he was married to Ellen Hogan, only daughter of Patrick Hogan, of Michigan City. Of this union seven children were born, five of who still survive: Aminta, who is now Mrs. S.J. Smith of Greenwood, Mabel, now Mrs. Lester Taylor of Shawnee, Okla., Joseph, Charles and Ivy, still at home. Two children, Francis and Catherine, preceded the father in death.

Mr. Moore came to Clark County, Wis. in 1870, and for many years was engaged in the logging business, but for several years past has worked his farm.

He has been a great sufferer for several months. In November he was taken to the St. Joseph’s Hospital at Marshfield, but medical skill was of no avail. In January he was brought home from the hospital so that he might spend his last days with his dear ones, who remember him as one of the most kindly and patient of sufferers. The funeral was held from the M.E. Church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Willmarth of the M.E. Church assisted by Rev. Hendren of the Presbyterian Church, performed the ceremony, and thus the body of Mr. Moore was laid to rest in the Greenwood Cemetery.
