In 1860, John A. Moore was a farmer presumably living in or around Gettysburg and later worked as a mail carrier. He stood 5' 7" tall and had dark hair and blue eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Harrisburg September 2, 1864, mustered into federal service September 4 as a private with Co. G, 209th Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company May 31, 1865.

He married Mary Jane Burkholder January 13, 1870, in Mercersburg, Franklin County, fathering Jennie May (b. 02/26/71 - married Jerry Raban) and George Albert (b. 03/08/74). In 1890, he lived in Lamaster, Franklin County, but moved to Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 1903 and then to Patterson, Passaic County, where he died of "chronic myocarditis" while living with his granddaughter.
