Birth: Aug. 15, 1851
Tuscaloosa County
Alabama, USA
Death: Feb. 25, 1884, Mexico

William Coleman Moore died in San Lucas Springs, Coahuila, Mexico (1851-1884) from Consumption:Tuberculois. Some said that he went to San Lucas, Coahulia, Mexico for his health for the (mineral springs water), and some say he was killed there while buying cattle for his brother Black Tom.

Bob Cohen: I have been told by my mother that he died of consumption which I have found through research is the same disease that we call tuberculosis today. There are or were mineral baths there and he was there to cure his TB. He died there. As I have been told the family was unable to make contact with his brother (which one was not specified, he had several brothers, but I suspect it was Black Tom) in order to get the money to ship the body back home before the mandatory burial date in Mexico. William Coleman Moore's widow remarried and had, I believe, 4 more children. I knew three of them personally. My Mother's family had a close relationship with them. Ron West: According to my Mother, Mike had said on several occasions that the reason his was not wealthy like his brothers is that his mother kept him home and made him go to church, while his older brothers were out stealing cows and driving them to market. William Coleman's son, William Jefferson, (1872-1929), came to Llano and worked for his Uncle, Black Tom, in the Black Tom's bank. He later moved to San Saba where he a bank and raised horses. In 1929 he committed suicide after the stock market crash of 1929. His son Thomas Jefferson (Tom), (1900-1977) was president of the Llano State Bank for many years in Llano. The bank was primarily owned by Edna Moore, daughter of Black Tom.
