"Widely Known Maryland Hotelkeeper Expires at Leonardtown
Herbert F. Moore, proprietor of Moore’s Hotel, Leonardtown, Md. Died at that place Friday night, aged fifty-six. Mr. Moore was well known in Washington. He was one of the best-known hotel men in the State, and had a wide circle of acquaintances not only in Maryland, but throughout the Southern States. The bell of his hotel in Leonardtown has been ringing curfew at 9 p.m. for half a century, the custom originating in old slavery days. He was an energetic man and a useful citizen.

He leaves an aged mother, a widow, two sons and two daughters and six brothers. He was married in 1876 to Miss Olive Durant, of St. Mary’s county. Her father, C.I. Durant, was a member of the Maryland legislature when he was arrested by the Federal Government and confined with others, at the outbreak of the war. He was among the last to be released. Warren Moore, the eldest brother of Herbert F. Moore, enlisted as a lad in the Second Maryland Regiment, C.S.A. He was in the company of Capt. Crane, now Judge Crane. He fell early in the battle of Gettysburg, struck by a ball in the forehead. Two of his brothers live in the West; another, Joseph A. Moore, lives in Baltimore. Richard Moore, of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and two others reside in Washington."
