GENEALOGIES: Moore Family Genealogy; by Ralph D. and Virginia Moore, 1980. Excerpt, "Ezra and his brother, Aaron Foreman Moore, had a general store at Fairbury, Illinois. The store burned, in the Spring of 1870. Ezra and his family returned to Iroquois County, to a farm near Woodland, Illinois. He farmed, on various farms, in Iroquois County until the death of his wife, in 1882. He remarried, in 1883, and his second wife refused to have the children. They were scattered out among friends, relatives and neighbors. Ezra quit farming and moved to Sheldon, Illinois, where he engaged in the occupation of plasterer and mason. He died of cancer of the throat at the Veterans Hospital in Danville, Illinois, in 1915. His funeral was the first time his children were all together since the death of their mother, in 1882."
