Obituary - Davenport Democrat - dated August 14, 1902:
The body of Bartholemew Moore, who died at 7:30 o'clock Tuesday evening, arrived in this city from Valley Junction on No. 6 at 3:32 o'clock this morning and was met by Undertaker Halligan at the depot.
The remains were escorted by James Moore, brother of the deceased, of Donahue, Ia and a nephew, Daniel Moore, also of Donahue, and Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Waller of Valley Junction and son of the deceased, John Moore of Grinnell.
The deceased had been ill for four or five months, and and his brother James was summoned to Valley Junction to Valley Junction Saturday to await the expected end.
Bartholomew Moore was born in Cork, Ireland, 78 years ago. For 20 years he farmed Scott county aces until 1885 he removed to Hanford, Gregg County, North Dakota. He thought he would return to Scott county once more and left his home in North Dakota where he had been living with his sons Thomas and James and came as far as Valley Junction where he visited with his daughter, Mrs. Elmer Waller, where he died.
The survivors are the sons John of Grinnell, Henry and Matthias of Alaska, and Thomas and James of North Dakota, and one daughter, Mrs. Elmer Waller of Valley Junction.
One brother, James Moore of Donohue, this county, and a sister, Mrs. William Cotter of South Dakota, also survives. His wife is deceased since 1876.
The funeral services were held Wednesday at Valley Junction, Ia., whereat Rev. Father Gleason officiated at a requiem high mass and absolution ceremony. The body way taken from the depot here to the Undertaking parlors, where at 8 o'clock the interment was made in St. Maguerite's cemetery.
Finding information on the life and death of Bartholemew has been a long, difficult process. I am a great great granddaughter of Bartholemew. His youngest son, Thomas, was my great grandfather. After a long search of Mt. Calvary (formerly St Marguerite's) Cemetery I was convinced that there was no grave marker for Bartholemew and I contacted the funeral home for further information. Bartholemew was buried in the plot with his wife Mary and his older brother Mathias. There are no stones for either man.
